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.”

At only 23 years old Steven Jackson A.K.A. Un1que has accomplished a lot and proven himself to be more than a local star in his city of Winston-Salem, NC. Un1que has had many different musical backgrounds from being lead percussionist in every orchestra band he’s been a part of, to starting his own record label at the age of 19. He went on to sell over 1,000 copies of his first mixtape under the record label name (Crank Me Up Records) before his focused changed because of his lack of knowledge in music business. He then started to pursue this knowledge at Forsyth technical Community College while his buzz continued to grow without a single album or music video released yet. Continuing with his momentum he went on to join Winston World Wide in 2010, also creating the “Tear Da Stage Up” showcase & competition, then touring with Goss and Kill Yo Self Ent. to spread his name outside of his city and state. Un1que is still on the grind with another mixtape release upcoming with the “Tune My Radio”, which he produced the whole mixtape as well. Un1que is more than an artist, he’s a rising star that’s ready to let the world see him shine.

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.”

What happened in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas.
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.”
The couple of ten years have one of the most rock-solid marriages in Hollywood, and we’re sure they’ll weather this storm.
