Fred the Godson has sadly died.

The 35-year-old New York rapper died at the age of 35 following a battle with COVID-19, his friend DJ Self confirmed on Thursday (April 23).

Self wrote that he “was loved … never heard one bad thing about you RIP @fredthegodsonmusic Sleep Well my brother.”

Jaquae also posted about Fred, writing: “Sleep in peace my brother…. You’ll never be forgotten. LOVE U MAN. I have so much things to say but I’m lost right now.”

He was hospitalized earlier in the month, relying on a ventilator to breathe and battling a fever of 105 degrees, according to his publicist earlier in the week.

Among his accomplishments, Fred the Godson was featured as part of XXL‘s 2011 Freshman class.
