Jacksonville-based-rapper Julio Foolio lost his life in a firearm incident that occurred at a parking lot at Holiday Inn in Tampa on early Sunday morning.

As per News4jAX reports, his lawyer Lewis Fusco first confirmed his passing news to the media, saying that the rapper was celebrating his 26th birthday at an Airbnb on Friday, and when ‘he had to leave’ from there, he eventually reached Holiday Inn, but there, he was ‘ambushed.’

Well, it’s extremely sad that he lost his life at such a young age to armed violence. But, we believed Julio must have seen it coming as he had already faced such an unfortunate incident twice in the last three years.

Furthermore, Julio eyewitnessed so many similar turbulence in his life while growing up at the north side 1646 West FL fi Street Hilltop Village Apartments that he had to leave his hometown surging for a peaceful life.

But that didn’t work out for him as he started carrying a pistol with him to protect himself. If that was the case, then what do you think Julio witnessed as a child?

From his father to his close friends, Julio Foolio lost many of his close people in a firearm incident

During his interview with VladTv, Jacksonville-based-rapper Julio Foolio revealed a heart-wrenching story of his childhood full of violence.

According to him, the first violence he ever witnessed was a dying dog mama when he was 12 years old. Then, sometime later, he lost his first friend, Aaron Brook, and then his father to violence.

Regarding his father’s death, he said, “he [his father] had got an altercation with somebody he beat somebody up right and I guess after he beat the person up the person couldn’t take the ass with him so they they sh*t.”

The tragic story of his life didn’t end there. Over the years, he lost his brother, his girlfriend, and his baby, too, all to the violence. How tragic was that for a teenager, Julio, to bear his entire life!

But whatever happened, he appeared to have accepted everything, saying, ‘It is what it is.’

Well, despite that, he made his way to the mainstream music industry as a rapper, earning 952,456 monthly listeners on his Spotify.
