Hip hop artist and Internet personality Frederick Eugene Buhl died Saturday in Renton, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s office.
On a Facebook post, Buhl’s father, Frederick Douglass Buhl, said his son was 22 years old.
The younger Buhl went by the name Freddy E. He was best known for his Internet program Jerk TV, which featured humorous and profane segments, often with a moral or cautionary message.
“Not only our family, but the world has lost a talented, sensitive, brilliant young man who lit up our existence with his,” Buhl’s father said in his post.
Nick Fletcher, of the medical examiner’s office, said an autopsy will be performed Monday.
The last messages on Freddy E’s Twitter account express despair and heartbreak. “If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home …” He told his parents he loved them. The final message: “I’m sorry.”

While stopping by at BET’s “106 & Park,” T.I. explained the title of his latest album, Trouble Man.
Tip was asked why he titled his album after a song by Marvin Gaye.
“I felt like at that moment in time, Marvin Gaye’s life embodied what the word ‘Trouble Man’ and what the song meant in all senses of the word,” he explained. “And today… I feel like the past six, seven years of my life, and the adversity…in my life that I have endured and overcame, that is synonymous and it embodies what the word ‘Trouble Man’ means today.”
“Marvin Gaye did it for them back then, and I’m doing it for us right now,” added Tip. “Nothing but love and respect, and nothing but salutations and respect to Marvin Gaye and his whole family.”
T.I. also discussed the feel of the album. “It has a more balanced blend of that vintage ‘You Don’t Know Me,’ ‘Top Back,’ Trap Muzik sound with some of the more mainstream radio records that you heard from Paper Trail.” said T.I. “It’s more of a cohesive blend.”
Everything about Lil Wayne seems to get news except his music. Wayne was allegedly caught up in a massive brawl that took place backstage at Cali Christmas last Friday (Dec. 14).
Full of shockers, Cali Christmas brought out guest appearances from Big Sean, J.Cole, and A$AP Rocky. The YM camp leader got through the west-side to hit the stage and support Kendrick Lamar. Unfortunately for Wayne, his intentions were dropped when a fight broke out before his appearance. An eye-witness told Hollyscoop.com that the fight was among the rapper and unknown individuals.
“Punches were thrown but no arrests were made,” said the witness. “It was a serious fight and was witnessed by everyone who was backstage.”
Witnesses say the cause of the fighting wasn’t clear or who the other guy was. Fortunetly, authorities were not called but with many eye witnesses someone had to catch it on camera.
No statements have been made by the radio station or the Young Money camp about the issue.
Rap star Nas attends a party in New York on July 17, 2012. Nas was supposed to be performing shows in Angola but instead spent New Year’s Eve at LeBron James’ engagement party (not pictured), lawsuit says.
Queens rapper Nas has been hit with a breach of contract lawsuit that could cost him $10 million.
The suit filed on Friday claims a New Jersey concert promoter and his son spent 50 days in custody in Angola early this year after the hip-hop star failed to show for two heavily-promoted concerts in the southern African nation.
Nas is being sued in Manhattan Federal Court by Patrick Allocco who arranged for Nas to perform two Near Year’s shows in Luanda, the nation’s capital.
At the time, Allocco told reporters that he was stuck in Angola and being held at gunpoint by a local “concert impresario” who put up the money for the concerts.
Nas got a $300,000 advance and budding rapper Jamiah Jai, who was supposed to be the opening act, got $15,000. The court papers say Nas was in Miami to attend a New Year’s Eve engagement party at the home of hoops star LeBron James.
The lawsuit says after the shows were canceled, Allocco and his son were taken into custody by Angolan authorities who refused to let them leave the country until the money was returned.
Nas and Jai did eventually repay the money.
Allocco and his son were released Feb. 18, after the State Department intervened, the lawsuit says.Nas grew up in the Queensbridge Houses in Long Island City and burst on the rap scene in 1994 with the hit album “Illmatic.”

R&B singer Trey Songz was reportedly arrested in late September of this year over an incident that happened on August 22nd, according to New York Daily News.
The R&B star, whose real name is Tremaine Neverson, was arrested over an altercation that occurred in a Queens strip club for misdemeanor assault after he allegedly threw a wad of money that hit a woman in her left eye, causing “substantial pain.”
Songz, 28, is accused of tossing the money at 36-year-old Donna McIntosh-Inoe after she allegedly snapped a cell phone picture of him at Club Perfection in Woodhaven at 4 a.m.
“He chucked a wad of cash at me,” McIntosh-Inoe told the Daily News. “A wad of cash.”
The Staten Island woman said she didn’t even know she had a bruise on her face until after she left the club.
“I had to walk around a whole week with a black eye,” McIntosh-Inoe said.
McIntosh-Inoe’s husband said the couple paid $700 to sit with Songz in the VIP section of the club where he held an album release party for his fifth EP “Studio V.”
“He tried to delete the picture, but he didn’t know how to use my phone,” McIntosh-Inoe said.
She couldn’t bring herself to pick up the discarded money.
Songz never came out to apologize, according to McIntosh-Inoe.

There might be a meltdown in the relationship between Ice T and his wife Coco Austin over some suspiciously flirty pictures in which the buxom blonde, who is headlining the topless revue Peepshow, is seen getting close with rapper AP.9.
The Ice Loves Coco star sparked a Twitter tirade from her husband, who wasn’t with his wife in Las Vegas. The rapper calls the photos, “disrespectful and in bad taste. She’s made me look..And feel like s—.” While no one is using the D-word, Coco isn’t quite off the hook for her naughty behavior. “Don’t get it twisted…I’m not happy about this s—,” T added.
Coco apologized to her man, also via Twitter, by admitting, “Ice is right, the pics I took with this man were in poor taste & I disrespected my husband however the pics were the only thing that happened.” She added, “please guys I’m happily married, sometimes fans & friends take silly pics it’s harmless.”
In case once wasn’t enough, Coco laid out another apology to her man several hours later. “I feel so sad the bottom line is I love Ice & can understand why he’s upset there’s no excuse for my actions. I’m so sorry baby.”
