NEW VERSION IS NOW AN E-BUNDLE WITH FIVE VIDEOS:
24-year-old Baton Rouge rapper Fredo Bang’s brand new mixtape TWO-FACE BANG 2 (released two weeks ago on April 15th via Def Jam Recordings) is being redelivered today to all DSPs. It now consists of the original 18-song album augmented with a 19th track, “Brazy” featuring YNW Melly.
In addition, this special redelivery of TWO-FACE BANG 2 is now an e-mix bundle containing videos of five of the mixtape tracks: “4’s Up,” “Federal Raid,” “No Love” featuring Sleepy Hallow (which posted the biggest first week at Spotify of Fredo’s career), and “Last One Left” featuring Roddy Ricch. The fifth video, “Street Lights,” went up on the YouTube premiere page at midnightEST, then live at noon to all video partners, including Apple Music, Tidal, and so on. (Please see complete track and video listings below.)
TWO-FACE BANG 2 (whose title references 2 Face Bang, Fredo’s debut indie mixtape of 2018) is his seventh mixtape release in three and a half years. It is a landmark event for a singular artist 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.
Fredo is 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 hotly awaited follow-up to Murder Made Me (August 2021), whose initial single + video “Street Team” was praised byHotNewHipHop 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.” Also in April, Rolling Stone magazine named Fredo #1 on its ‘Breakthrough 25’: The Fastest Rising Artist Of The Month’ list.
Most Hated 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.
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.
