Freddie E sent out several cryptic tweets before taking his life:

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.

It’s… all… bad… y’all. *puts finger around trigger*

Numerous reports have speculated that the 22-year-old killed himself after his breakout from rapper Honey Cocaine. The Toronto-based rapper took to Twitter to set the record straight:

To say I caused what happened is ignorance.. You know nothing about our friendship or the story, hate me if you feel.. We loved eachother..

We were homies. We had a bond and a connection. For people to attack me acting like I made him do it is a shame.

Say it’s my fault, threaten me, whatever.. I knew him well enough to know he had other things happening.. I was there for him all the time.

The talented artist was widely know for his YouTube channel, JerkTV. The channel has more than 70,000 subscribers and 7.4 million views as of Monday, Jan. 7. His last video was published two days ago. It was a spoken word video titled, “Ignorance.”
