Rapper Fredo Santana passed away at age 27 due to a fatal seizure.

The Chicago born rapper, also known as Derrick Coleman, was found unresponsive on the floor by his girlfriend around 11:30 pm on Friday, according to TMZ.

Family members told the site that Fredo was inside his Los Angeles home when the incident took place.

Santana has been linked to some of the biggest names in hip hop, including his cousin Chief Keef.

Early Saturday, rapper Drake sent his condolences as he posted a throwback photo with Fredo on his Instagram.

The God’s Plan artist wrote: ‘Rest In Peace Santana’ along with three frowning emojis.

Although Fredo will be undergoing an autopsy to pinpoint his cause of death, it appears the Trappin Ain’t Dead star suffered from kidney and liver failure last October.
