Releases official music video “Last One Left” featuring Roddy Ricch
Fredo Bang, the 24-year old Baton Rouge rapper who overcame a Louisiana jail term to generate a string of viral street anthems that have amassed nearly 1 billion global streams and over 580 million Youtube views, drops his seventh mixtape in three and a half years, as TWO-FACE BANG 2 arrives at all platforms today via Def Jam Recordings.
The 18-track TWO-FACE BANG 2 mixtape (whose title references 2 Face Bang, his debut indie mixtape of 2018) contains “No Love” featuring Sleepy Hallow, Fredo’s brand new single + video that posted the biggest first week at Spotify of his career. Other collabos on the new mixtape feature Roddy Ricch, YNW Melly, and more. (Please see complete track list below.) Fredo Bang also released the official video for “Last One Left” featuring Roddy Ricch today.
TWO-FACE BANG 2 is a landmark release for Fredo Bang, a YouTube Trending Artist On The Rise with over 1 million subscribers. As one of Soundcloud’s Artists Of The Month in April for SiriusXM, Fredo is featured on both “The Lookout By Soundcloud” show on Hip-Hop Nation, and on Soundcloud Radio.
TWO-FACE BANG 2 is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Murder Made Me (August 2021), whose initial single + video “Street Team” was praised by HotNewHipHop for its “menacing flow.” Highlights of the mixtape ranged from the boisterous opening charge of a Louisiana second line on the hard-hitting “Throw Da Set (Long Live Von),” to multiplatinum Chicago drill superstar Polo G’s melodic harmonies on “Bless His Soul.” Coi Leray joined Fredo on “Oou Oou,” a raunchy guitar-laden banger; and Mozzy provided counterpoint to Fredo’s soulful intonation on the tearful and joyful victory lap, “Amen.”
Prior to Murder Made Me, 2020 was a busy year for Fredo, who released his debut album in April, Most Hated, with “Get Even,” “Trust Issues,” “Vest Up,” and “Yo Slime.” It was followed in September by In The Name Of Gee, the 15-track mixtape that paid tribute to his friend Gee Money, who was murdered in 2017. The mixtape debuted at #93 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Fredo’s biggest first week to that point in his career.
The string of 11 single + video releases from In The Name Of Gee spanned the last six months of 2020: “Receipts,” “Top” featuring Lil Durk (massive RIAA gold #1 Bubbling Under benchmark), “Monsters,” “Clock Out,” “Second Line,” “No Security” featuring Kevin Gates (#2 Trending, highest ever for a Fredo video), “How It Go” (#1 most streamed track of the week), “In Gee We Trust,” “Lately” featuring Seven7Hardaway (whose colorful video was shot on nighttime location on the Las Vegas strip), “Dangerous,” and “Freak” featuring Mulatto.
The 15-track mixtape was expanded into a deluxe 21-track project issued four months later in January 2021, In The Name Of Gee (Still Most Hated), buoyed by the remix of “Top.” The new mixtape version was executive produced by Moneybagg Yo, who had also served as executive producer of the original Most Hated. Rolling Stone magazine named Fredo #1 on its ‘Breakthrough 25’: The Fastest Rising Artist Of The Month’ list for April 2020.
Prior to the Covid-19 hiatus, Fredo was set to hit the road as the highest-billed support act on Moneybagg’s 26-city cross-country “Time Served Tour,” with dates running from March through May 2020. Details of the rescheduled tour will be announced soon.
