For years Baton Rouge superstar Youngboy NBA has absolutely ran the YouTube game. Consistently dropping new music videos that amass from a range of 12 million - 60+ million views each. It seems though that fellow Baton Rouge star, Fredo Bang is coming for that spot as he was just selected as YouTube’s trending artist on the rise.
Fredo first saw real attention in 2018 with the release of his extremely successful album 2 Face Bang. Like Youngboy, Fredo also consistently drops videos left and right working with the likes of Cole Bennet, DREWFILMEDIT, Jon J, Jolo, BEN MARC, DEMARCUSTD, and many more. "Fredo Bang is a skilled emcee who simply doesn't waste a bar, he's the type of artist that will give you that urge to rewind his verses over and over again" said Cole Bennett.
With his deep, barking drawl and a natural affinity for melody, Fredo Bang is the next rhymer to rise out the Bayou. The highs and lows of his life encompass turning down a scholarship at Texas Southern U, in order to study closer to home, and a stiff jail sentence for aggravated battery that was commuted in 2018. He talks about his story in a lot of his songs and shows a lot of representation of his story in his videos as well.
