Drake is mourning the loss of his friend.

Today has been unbearably sad for OVO Sound. According to Drake, OVO affiliate and longtime friend, Fif, has passed away.

Via Instagram, the 6 God confirmed the devastating news, “😔😔😔😢😢😢 RIP to one of our family members…our brother… I still can’t even believe this morning was real. It was a honor to have shared years together and I will always keep your memory alive 😔Forever Fif.”

According to CBC News in Toronto, Canada, early Thursday morning, Fif, born Anthony Soares, 33, was shot multiple times at close range in the lobby of a building in Scarborough after two armed suspects approached him. Fif was rushed to the hospital, where he pronounced dead upon arrival.

Fif wasn’t as well known as some of the other OVO members, however, Drake made a reference to him on More Life’s “No Long Talk”, “Just know man like Fif, he’s a sickaz/ You get tanned, he don’t miss tings.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Gary Giroux at 416-808-7400 ext. 7-7387, or Detective Steve Henkel at extension 7-7412, or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS.
