Fredo Bang clawed his way out of Baton Rouge, LA and to the forefront of the game. Since emerging in 2015, he has posted up nearly 1 billion streams and earned praise from Rolling Stone, XXL, The FADER, DJ Booth, and HYPEBEAST. During 2018, the independent 2 Face Bang mixtape yielded his breakthrough banger “Oouuh,” which generated 24.1 million Spotify streams. He maintained this momentum with Big Ape and one high-profile collaboration after another, including the “Oouh (Remix)” [feat. Kevin Gates], “Gangsta Talk” [feat. NLE Choppa], and “Story To Tell (Remix)” [feat. Moneybagg Yo].
Signing to Def Jam, he launched into fan favorite projects Pain Made Me Numb and Most Hated executive produced by Moneybagg Yo. The latter housed “Get Even” [feat. Lil Baby], “Air It Out” [feat. YNW Melly], and “Trust Issues.” However, he caught fire in 2021 with the Deluxe Album In The Name of Gee (Still Most Hated). The unshakable “Top (Remix)” [feat. Lil Durk] eclipsed 42 million global streams and 21 million views in a few months’ time. As the project tallied 160 million total streams, it captured #2 on the Bllboard Current Rap Albums and Current R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, #12 on the Top Albums Chart, and cracked the Top 40 of the Top 200.
Flaunt predicted, “Fredo Bang is the next rap superstar to come out of the south,” and he proves this claim true with his album Murder Made Me and more music on the horizon throughout 2021 and beyond.
