Can we give Fredo Bang "2020 ROTY (Rookie Of The Year)"?
Lets put some respect on Fredo Bangs name. I'm not saying its disrespect on his name but its not being mentioned and it should. That man out here working the music industry like its a big trap house, it seem like he's doing whatever he wants.
Fredo Bang released "Most Hated" in the peak of the Covid Pandemic. At a time when people was scared to release music, this dude drop an album that could be considered as a classic. "Most Hated" has 12 tracks with features from Lil Baby, YNW Melly, MoneyBagg Yo, CeeFineAss, and Tee Grizzley. Also all the production was done by HardBody and Dj Chose aka Mr. Thi-thi-thi-thi-thi-thick.
After a release like this, most artist would of did a promo run and dropped one or maybe two videos and called it one, especially during this pandemic. Nah! Not Fredo Bang! He went into over drive.
So five months after the release of "Most Hated" Fredo Bang release "In The Name Of Gee" this project is just as hard as the last one. It's like a continuation of him showcasing his talent, like you can tell the improvements and adjustments he made going into this project. He in the gym really working and you can tell from just his song writing ability.
Fredo Bang created a work of art with "In The Name Of Gee" The art work is even dope. His recipe for this project has a different taste to it even tho he got the same ingredients, with HardBody, and Dj Chose aka Mr. Thi-thi-thi-thi-thi-thick on majority of the production. I'm loving Fredo Bang, Hardbody and Dj Chose chemistry, They're like the 3 headed monsters. This project has 15 tracks with features from Kevin Gates, Mulatto, Petty Levels, Seven7Hardway, and Gee Money.
Even after "In The Name Of Gee" you can tell he went right back to the gym. He closed out the 2020 the right way, randomly releasing two tracks and two videos. One of the release was "Big Steppa" featuring Sada Baby, produced by Dj Chose aka Mr. Thi-thi-thi-thi-thi-thick. This joint is a club banger. No Cap! They both did the fool on this song and S/O to the video director Jolo who did an amazing job.
I'm a little late on Fredo Bangs, I came across his music a few times between "2 Face Bang" and "Pain Made Me Numb" but didn't really give him a real listen til "Most Hated" which is bananas to me, so then I had to go back and listen see whats to him.
AYE! Shorty got in his bag on this here. The second single he released to close out the year "Loose Screws" FIIIRE!! This song has been in heavy rotation since December 18, 2020. The energy of the song is turnt, but then you watch the video OMG! That director Jolo is a dawg. He captured the perfect moments for this video. I just want to be on stage when he preform this song.
I Feel its only right we give Fredo Bang "2020 Rookie Of The Year." The consistency that he shown us with two solid projects and how he closed out the year with two singles, which are both back to back bangers. He got my full attention now and I'm excited to see what he does 2021. Like, Share, and don't forget to share your opinion. #JonesWatChaOn
