Fredo Santana Dies At Age 27

This was a news I saw coming but hoped I was wrong. Fredo Santana after going through a near death experience last year, promised to check himself into rehab to try and curb is lean addition. I felt good inside but also wondered if the damage to his liver had already been down.

On Saturday (Jan. 20), news of Fredo's death started making the rounds. I really didn't know the Chicago rapper on a personal basis but the news still stung. Fredo Santana, born Derrick Coleman died Friday night (Jan. 19) from a fatal seizure. His girlfriend reportedly found him dead on the floor at his LA home around 11:30 p.m. PST. 

He leaves behind an 8-month old son.

RIP, Fredo "Derrick Coleman" Santana.


Notorious B.I.G Billboard Gets Planted At Murder Scene

The creators behind "Unsolved: The Murders Of Tupac And Notorious B.I.G" found a new innovative way to market the series. TMZ reports that the films marketers have settled on Biggie's actual murder scene as a perfect location to erect a billboard promoting the series. 

Notorious B.I.G was gunned down on March 9, 1997 as he left L.A.'s Petersen Automative Museum, on the corner of South Fairfax & Wilshire, which is where the billboard was placed. 

The series also covers Tupac's death so we may be getting a billboard in his honor at the Vegas intersect where he was killed. 

The series premieres February 27.
