Social media tributes are pouring in for Bronx rapper Fred The Godson aka Gordo (nee Fredrick Thomas), who has reportedly passed away after a battle with coronavirus. His his wife and publicist LeeAnn Jemmott gave an update to News12 Brooklyn over a week ago indicating Fred’s fever was dropping but he was having issues with his kidneys. It’s unclear what the exact cause of death is.

Fred just recently released his latest project Payback which features appearances by 38 Spesh and Klass Murda.
Frequent collaborator Jaquae confirmed the news with a post on Instagram:
“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..”
Our condolences to Fred The Godson’s family and friends.
