Last year, we lost too many important members of the hip-hop community. With Lil Peep, XXXTentacion, Mac Miller, Jimmy Wopo and Fredo Santana all leaving us in the span of twelve months, music fans had a lot of mourning to do and it was overwhelming. Many of us were not personal friends with any of the aforementioned artists but we still built deep connections with them through their words and art. Fredo Santana passed away after suffering a seizure in early 2018, leading so many of his peers to remember him in their verses. His son Legend was so young when his father passed, which makes the whole situation that much more heartbreaking. When looking at recent photos of Legend, you can see the resemblance that he shares with his dad, pretty much mirroring the late rapper in some shots.

Legend’s mother hasn’t shared too many photos of her son so to be able to witness just how similar he looks to Fredo is pretty special. The expression that Legend is pulling makes the similarities stand out even further. With the furrowed brows and the blank stare in his eyes, you can easily tell that this is Fredo’s little boy.
The little boy may still have some vague memories of his father, who he was lucky to meet before Fredo’s fatal seizure. XXXTentacion’s son Gekyume was recently revealed to the world through a series of photos. Unfortunately, he will never meet his father, who was killed before his birth.
