Aspiring rapper and YouTuber S.dot, aka Dotarachi, died following heart surgery, his girlfriend, Holly confirmed in a Facebook post on Wednesday. He was 27.
S.dot was born with a congenital heart defect and has endured multiple heart surgeries.
The Chicago drill rapper was known for his regional hit song "Skrilla."
The founder of rap collective 485 was a member of Chicago's 600 gang, a Black Disciples set. He later released music on his YouTube channel, DotarachiVevo, before becoming well known as a YouTuber with his girlfriend, Holly.
In an emotional video on the "Holly and Sdot" YouTube channel, S.dot asked for prayers before going in for surgery to repair a tear in his aorta, the main artery that feeds oxygenated blood to the body.
"I don't know what to do," said Holly. "I kinda feel sad but I try not to feel sad because I don't want you to feel sad," she told S.dot, before breaking down in tears.
"I feel like I don't know how to comfort you, so it's kinda like... I know you was saying, 'be realistic,' but ... what do you say, you know? I guess I just want you to go into it with a positive spirit."
S.dot responded, "Everybody else on the outside looking in and be like, you gon' be good? You gon' be good?' But what if I don't be good? ... What if I'm not good?"
He then told Holly he loved her and she should move on without him.
