Among the people bringing New York hip hop back is Fred the Godson. Hailing from The Bronx, some have tried comparing the newcomer to the late Notorious B.I.G. Those sentiments have not come from everyone, though. Still, most have agreed Fred is a very gifted rapper.
DJ Clark Kent, a man who worked with The Notorious B.I.G., along with Jay-Z, has been made into a believer. Upon meeting the famed producer, Fred the Godson said they immediately hit if off, establishing a relationship. Fred the Godson said he was amazed when Clark Kent co-signed him.
Fred the Godson said it was an honor to be co-signed by the same man who co-signed Biggie and Jay-Z. It was Fred the Godson’s friend, PJ from Mount Vernon, who helped them meet. Fred was told by DJ Clark Kent he would be one of the greatest if he continued to go at the rate he was going, making classic records.
Another famous DJ Fred the Godson is working with is DJ Drama. His Gangsta Grillz mixtape will be called Fred and Friends. The mixtape will support a lead single, which features Diddy, Meek Mill, and Cory Gunz. Fred the Godson said the mixtape has nothing less than album-quality material. Being unsigned is the only reason the mixtape will not be sold in stores. Fred the Godson spoke on his single, “Gettin Money… Pt. 2,” saying the mixtape would be an album, if not for him being unsigned and the DJ Drama affiliation.
Fred the Godson went on to say Fred and Friends would be better than 95% of the albums coming out.
