The Hip Hop world was shaken when news broke that 22-year-old rapper Frederick Eugene Buhl aka Freddy E died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Saturday. While facts concerning what led to the rapper’s decision to take his life are unknown, many Twitter users suggest that his fragile emotional state was partially linked to issues surrounding his ex-girlfriend, fellow rapper, Honey C*caine. Just before taking his life, Freddy released several chilling tweets that forewarned his suicide.
“Smoked my first pack of cigarettes today… been a long time since I’ve gone through heart break. It’s a cold unforgiving world if I do say.”
“It’s all bad y’all…”
“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*”
“I love you Mom.”
“I love you Dad.”
“I love you Katherine.”
“God… please forgive me.”
The tweets are said to have come shortly after his ex-girlfriend shared via her Twitter page that she was single; however she has since come forth using her Twitter account to deny having anything to do with his death.
“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..”
“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.”
Both Honey and Freddy are affiliated with YMCMB rapper Tyga. While speculations can never truly confirm whether or not Freddy E’s failed relationship was the direct cause of his suicide, I believe we all can agree that it is unfortunate that whatever this young man was going through, he felt it to be overwhelming enough to take his own life.
Freddy was extremely popular for his spoken-word pieces and comedic skits, which he frequently shared on his YouTube channel, JERKTV. He is remembered by his family as being “a talented, sensitive, and brilliant young man”.
Our prayers and condolences go out to the Buhl family.

It’s officially the internet age and everything celebrities Tweet, speak or claim is recorded. But that fact escapes a few of the rich and famous from time to time. Here are a few big celebrity lies your favorite stars have been caught in.
This all started when TMZ posted a clip of Tyga from an unaired MTV show called “Bustas.” In it, an 18-year-old Tyga bragged that he was named after Tiger Woods by wealthy parents who drove Range Rovers and brought him up in The Valley.
And that was news to Tyga fans who thought that the rapper was from Compton. Since the video’s release, Tyga says his parents were only wealthy during the time they were taping the show and that he’s really from Compton. OK Tyga.
Who is this baller baby with his gold chain and sweet sweatsuit? You’ll have to guess!
This baby boy’s father is a pretty popular rapper who rolls with folks like Lil Wayne and claims to be from Compton (though recently there has been some speculation that he’s pulling a Rick Ross and lying about his past). He’s Vietnamese and Jamaican and likes to rap about money and loves to put out mixtape after mixtape after mixtape. His mother is a former exotic dancer (she actually might still be one) from Miami’s King of Diamonds nightclub, who has been a body double for folks like Nicki Minaj. These two are currently still in a relationship, and most of us originally saw them together in one of his most famous music videos. There were rumors that the two were engaged, but they were vehemently denied later by the now 23-year-old rapper.
Sooooo…whose cute baby is this?
Twenty-two-year-old Compton rapper Tyga and his King of Diamonds-bred stripper girlfriend Blac Chyna welcomed a baby boy into the world yesterday. Little King Cairo Stevenson took the last name of his father who was born Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, and weighed in at 7 lbs and 1 oz.
Both parents shared the news on Twitter, with Tyga saying:
Blac Chyna expressed her excitement over becoming a new mommy, writing:
Welcome King Cairo Stevenson 7lbs 1 oz …….
40 long weeks …. So happy words can’t explain !!!
@Tyga: Thank you God Always. Todays gonna be a good Day.
Hopefully little King has a place to go home to. Right now Tyga has a little legal matter on his hand, stemming from the fact that his landlord is suing him. Gholamreza Rezai claims the rapper isn’t paying his $16,000/month in rent but is continuing to live in the home. Tyga’s people claim the lawsuit is BS and that he just bought a $6.5 million 9,279-square-foot mansion in Calabasas. I’m trying to figure out where his money is coming from, but that’s a discussion for another day.
Here are a few more pics of little King, congratulations!
While there are many celebrities who have hooked up then hightailed it, some, like Jay-Z and Beyoncé, are living happily ever after.
Suppose Jay and Bey became the norm? Would that inspire a few other celebs to hook up and go half on a baby? Click through the gallery to find out who would make a great pair when it comes to procreating.
The latest in the trend of non-black, hardcore, N-bomb-dropping female rappers is Honey Cocaine, the Asian protégé of the 22-year-old Compton rapper Tyga, who is of Vietnamese and Jamaican descent himself.
In a new video for her track, Feel S***, the 19-year-old Canadian MC doesn’t miss a beat dropping the N-word with the line, “soft b****es get hurt, soft n****s get it worse.” She’s also quite comfortable throwing the offensive term around on her twitter account, @HoneyLKCocaine.
Some are expecting the new artist to compete with Nicki Minaj, which seems a bit ambitious—plus people may not be so quick to get over her little linguistic snafus.
Check out the video below and tell us what you think about Honey Cocaine throwing out the N-word around the 2:00 mark. Should she drop the word from her lyrics or do you feel like Trina when it comes to non-black rappers using the N-word, who cares?
