The hip-hop world is mourning the death of Texas rapper Sad Frosty, who reportedly died Friday at 24 from undisclosed causes.
The Houston-based musician’s passing was confirmed Sunday in a post on his official Instagram account.
“Long Live Sad Frosty 3/4/97-1/14/22,” reads the tragic announcement his more than 230,000 followers, although it didn’t reveal a cause of death. The message was one of only two posts on the account — with the other being a pic of Frosty and fellow rapper Chief Keef, 26.
Little is known of the deceased lyricist’s personal life. Born and raised in Houston, Frosty — whose real name is also unknown — broke into on the music scene with the single “ADHD Freestyle,” the Sun reported.
He also famously collaborated with fellow hip-hopper DC The Don on a single called “Beavis and Butthead,” a video of which has nearly 1.5 million views on Frosty’s Youtube channel, which boasted nearly 95,000 subscribers and millions more views on other tracks at the time of his death.
Needless to say, the singer’s alleged death sent shockwaves through the rap community, with many fans hoping Sad Frosty’s social media death announcement was a hoax.
“Rip Bro smh,” said bereaved Florida rapper DJ Scheme on Instagram, while Oklahoma influencer and rapper B. Lou added, “LOVE YOU DAWG RIP FLY HIGH.”
“Woah woah woah wtf PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS FAKE,” one heartbroken fan commented.
Another crestfallen fan wrote, “Loved bro’s music so much especially his collabs with DC the Don.”
“I can just remember hearing his song in berlins merch intro and hearing him in Dontai intros to this day,” they added. “We love you frosty.”
Frosty isn’t the first rapper to tragically pass away of late. Just last week, 28-year-old word wizard Wavy Navy Pooh was killed in a drive-by shooting outside Miami.
