The comment sparked condolences among Lalo’s fans. However, many more of his followers were confused by the news given how he had posted a TikTok merely hours before the news, rapping from the seat of his car as normal. Not to mention, there had been no official confirmation from any of Lalo’s official social media accounts.
Lalo then debunked any rumors that he had passed away after he streamed live on the platform on June 28. Although, given how the stream was mainly a black screen, many fans are still in the dark over his current status.
The details surrounding the story are still foggy for fans and whether it is an unfounded rumor. We will provide any updates about Lalo should we get them.
