Fred The Godson
Fred first broke out in 2010 with Armageddon, a mixtape that heavily echoed earlier eras of New York rap with samples of the Notorious B.I.G. remix of Craig Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear" and boasted features from Busta Rhymes, Waka Flocka Flame and Cam'ron. The buzz from that tape earned Fred a spot on the 2011 XXL Freshman Class, alongside Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill, Mac Miller and YG. Fred the Godson was a fixture of New York rap radio and a frequent guest on Sway in the Morning and Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 show.
