Freddy E

Up-and-coming Seattle rapper and online personality Freddy E was found dead after an apparent suicide on Jan. 5, 2013. The incident played out on social media in real time, with the rapper tweeting a series of disturbing messages before his death. "If there's a God then He's calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It's cold & I'd rather die than live alone," he wrote. "It's... all... bad... y'all. *puts finger around trigger*"
