With a deep and resonant drawl capable of rapid-fire spitting and heartfelt sang-raps, Fredo Bang is one of the most versatile rising stars in the New South. Taking his brand of soulful street rap on the road for the first time, Fredo Bang announces the “Big Ape Tour.” His first-ever headlining tour and his first tour to move beyond his native South, the tour kicks off in Denver on June 4th, with planned stops in NYC on June 10th and Atlanta on June 24th, before finishing in Los Angeles on July 5th. With support performers to be announced, the “Big Ape Tour” is a great early chance to see a rising talent with an already-impressive array of street hits.
Gathering some of the biggest names in street rap for his coming-out party, Fredo shares Big Ape, his second mixtape. A 20-track effort with production from the likes of Southside, Ben Billions, and frequent collaborator Hardbody B-Eazy, the new mixtape is buoyed by Fredo’s mastery of melody, grounded by his lived-in storytelling, and informed by a violent past and months of reflection during a 2017 jail stint. Able to shift from clipped cadences to entrancing melody and back, Fredo hit his stride in recent months, garnering millions of YouTube views on tracks like the gripping “Story To Tell,” the moving “Pray To God,” and especially “Oouuh,” an infectious and charismatic single that earned a guest spot from Kevin Gates on the remix and racked up tens of millions of streams on all platforms. The new mixtape is home to “Gangsta Talk,” a vicious flex-off with 16-year-old newcomer NLE Choppa, which piled up over 4 million YouTube views and 560k Spotify plays in less than a month of release. Featuring additional appearances from Moneybagg Yo, Tee Grizzley, YNW Melly, Mozzy, Sada Baby, Celly Ru, Yoshi, and Blvd Quick, Big Ape is available everywhere via Sony RED/Bang Biz Ent.
