Dallas-based rapper and producer FXXXXY has died.
E! News can confirm the 25-year-old passed away earlier this month from complications while undergoing a routine medical procedure.
“The family of Maudell Watkins, aka FXXXXY, aka FBG Fox, are totally shocked and devastated at his unexpected and unforeseen passing,” his family said in a statement to E! News. “We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to his many friends and acquaintances who’ve reached out to us in this extremely difficult time.”
FXXXXY’s family continued, “He lived music with every breath he took and his focus and drive were unmatched. May his contributions to the music industry live forever. CC 4 Life!”
Earlier this month, FXXXXY released a brand-new single called “Paranoia / #1 Stunna.” Just weeks ago on Sept. 7, he expressed on social media just how grateful he was for all of the support online and on the music charts.
