Bronx native Fred The Godson fell in love with the hip-hop at a young age and has since made a name for himself as a lyricist in the game. Fred is one of the few that has continued to uphold hip-hop’s origins, known for his freestyle punchlines and witty bars. Since his XXL Freshman cover feature with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, and Meek Mill, he has continued to leave his imprint on the culture, creating music with the likes of artists like Dave East, Vado, Joel Ortiz and more.
Fred’s latest project, “Special Love” featuring Rick Ross and Sincere Gubano is a transition record, sonically disparate from his distinct boom bap sound. Produced by TheHeatmakerz, the track caters to the ladies and samples the classic record, “Tender Love” by Force M D’s. This is the first release leading up to his next project, slated to drop this Fall.
“The second I heard the record I could hear Rick Ross on there with me, so I called Fat Joe to come down to the studio to hear it. Joe lost Rick Ross’s number, so he had to call DJ Khaled to get it. We talked to Rick Ross and the rest is history.” –Fred The Godson
