Man, we were sad to hear this. Fred was one of the illest lyricists from the east in recent years. He reportedly had asthma which triggered COVID. The 35-year-old Bronx native had just given a status update on social media not too long ago. We extend our prayers to his family and loved ones.

The Coronavirus is no joke. We ask that people use wisdom when their cities start opening back up. The minority communities are especially hit hard by this. At an alarming, disproportionate rate. We recently reviewed his latest album, make sure to cop it to support his family. Sleep EZ, Fred.
