Fred The Godson has passed away after battling COVID-19.

The 35-year-old rapper, real name Fredrick Thomas, took to social media on April 6 and posted a photo of himself in the hospital receiving respiratory treatment.

The caption on the photo read:

I’m in here wit this Corvus 19 sh*t! Please keep me in y’all prayers!!!! ?????? #godisgreat

At one point, things were looking up after Fred’s wife told the media they were weaning him off of a ventilator.

Unfortunately, Fred has succumbed to the virus.

Jaquae took to Instagram writing:
