The Chicago rapper Fredo Santana has reportedly died at the age of 27.

The website claims that Santana's girlfriend, with whom he has an eight-month-old son, visited his Los Angeles home on Friday at 11.30pm and found him dead on the floor.

Back in October, Santana shared with his loyal followers on Instagram that he was taken to the hospital and diagnosed with both kidney and liver failure.

"Rest in Peace Santana", Drake composed on Instagram with a photo of both of them. In the wake of his passing, many of his fellow rappers like Drake and Travis Scott took to social media to honor the late rapper.

Lean, also known as sizzurp or purple drank, can cause seizures.

The Chicago rapper who is a cousin of Chief Keef was at his L.A. home Friday. Following the incident, he contemplated going to rehab.

He later admitted that the kidney failure was caused by using anti-anxiety medication Xanax and lean, a mixture of cough syrup, lemonade and candy which is prevalent in the hip-hop industry.

After releasing his debut 2012 mixtape It's A Scary Sight, Santana released his anticipated debut album, Trappin Ain't Dead, in 2013, which included a high-profile feature from Kendrick Lamar on the single "Jealous". Fredo's given name is also Derrick Coleman.
