Seattle rapper and internet comedian, Freddy E, committed suicide last weekend after posting a series of chilling tweets via his Twitter account. Reports have claimed that Freddy E, real name Frederick Eugene Buhl, was distraught about a recent breakup with girlfriend “Honey Cocaine,” also a rapper (real name Solchitta Sal). “If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home,” tweets the young star. “This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It’s cold & I’d rather die than live alone.” Seattle police have confirmed his death but have yet to release any additional information. The 22-year-old was said to be affiliated with rapper Tyga of the famed YMCMB group. Fans have expressed their shock and confusion over the incident, some even blaming Cocaine for what happened. She has taken to Twitter to defend herself. “To say I caused what happened is ignorance. You know nothing about our friendship or the story, hate me if you feel. We loved each other.” The entire situation is sad, in my opinion, especially since it involves young, talented individuals with their whole lives ahead of them. We, as fans, should respect his family and wait until more details emerge before we jump to conclusions. We should also be more proactive in preventing more tragedies like this.
I am an advent Spotify user, and one thing Spotify helped me with was discovering new talents and artists from around the world.
We live in a Hollywood-saturated industry, and it’s often so hard to find good non-American artists.
This is a shame because diverse artists will open our minds and ears to new instrumentals, kinds of music, and melodies. These are my favorite artists from around the world who offer truly unique talents.
