05.20.2019

Critical Praise:

“With the 2015 arrest that threatened to derail his rising career now decidedly in the rearview, Fredo is back with a newfound sense of purpose: more viral, more hardworking, and more determined to advance than ever before.”The FADER

“New Gen Winter 2019–His city’s favored up-and-comer and its most versatile rising act. Songs like ‘No Mo’ show his penchant for soul-searching narratives and music-as-medicine melodies; the success of ‘Oouuh’ proves he has a one-of-a-kind ability to reach all sides of the hip-hop and R&B spectrum.”HYPEBEAST

The Video:

With a deep drawl and a natural affinity for melody, Fredo Bang is the next rhymer to rise out the Bayou. Retreating to his hood with some of the realest dudes in Baton Rouge, Fredo Bang shares Story To Tell” (Remix), his latest video. A soulful slice of street science, “Story To Tell” finds Fredo embracing his inner demons, issuing a warning to all those who might cross him and his crew: “I’m a sinner, I ain’t listen to what the pastor say/Last n**** play with TBG, he passed away.” For the remix, Fredo recruits Memphis heavy-hitter Moneybagg Yo, rocking two massive chains and a Dolce Gabbana belt, who easily acclimates himself to the swampy Baton Rouge climate: “This Glock hot like Louisiana/Millionaire with some hood manners.” “Story To Tell” (Remix) is a standout track from Big ApeFredo’s second project, released last month.

Taking his brand of soulful street rap on the road for the first time, Fredo Bang announces the Big Ape Tour.” His first-ever headlining tour and his first tour to move beyond his native South, the tour kicks off in Denver on June 4th, with planned stops in NYC on June 10th and Atlanta on June 24th, and in Los Angeles on July 5th, before finishing in Dallas two days later.. With support performers to be announced, the “Big Ape Tour” is a great early chance to see a rising talent with an already-impressive array of street hits.

A 20-track effort with production from the likes of Southside, Ben Billions, and frequent collaborator Hardbody B-Eazy, Big Ape is buoyed by Fredo’s mastery of melody, grounded by his lived-in storytelling, and informed by a violent past and months of reflection during a 2017 jail stint. Able to shift from clipped cadences to entrancing melody and back, Fredo hit his stride in recent months, garnering millions of YouTube views on tracks like the moving Pray To God,” and especially Oouuh,” an infectious and charismatic single that earned a guest spot from Kevin Gates on the remix and racked up tens of millions of streams on all platforms. The new mixtape is home to Gangsta Talk,” a vicious flex-off with 16-year-old newcomer NLE Choppa, which piled up over 4 million YouTube views and 560k Spotify plays in less than a month of release. Featuring additional appearances from Tee Grizzley, YNW Melly, Mozzy, Sada Baby, Celly Ru, Yoshi, and Blvd QuickBig Ape is available everywhere via Sony RED/Bang Biz Ent.

The Background:

Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Fredo Bang started to record music in 2013 when he was 15-years-old. Tragedy struck a year later with the loss of his best friend, who was a local rapper in the neighborhood. Since then, the rising star used the nickname that his best friend had given him and hit the ground running. In 2016, Fredo was jailed for attempted murder. Things looked dim. But in 2018, Fredo was released on parole after taking a 7-year sentence, and released his 2 Face Bang album, taking his city by storm. He became an overnight sensation. A series of catchy songs like “Shootas On The Roof” and “Father” amassed millions of views, but it was Fredo’s breakout song “OOUUH” that propelled him to be an artist to watch, with the record getting significant radio play and video views on BET & REVOLT. With over 130 million streams across all platforms, Fredo Bang is ready to bust out of Baton Rouge and take the industry by storm.
