NOISEY IS THROWING FREDO SANTANA’S FIRST NEW YORK SHOW WITH A$AP ANT AND YUNG GLEESH
” It’s no secret we fuck with Chicago rap heavy. One of the rawest and most savage talents out the city is Fredo Santana, who despite appearing in Drake videos and becoming damn near ubiquitous on Rapper Instagram, has yet to play a New York show. Until December 18th, at least, when he’ll touch down upon Santos Party House to headline a stacked bill that also includes ASAP Ant and Yung Gleesh. “
On October 31, 2013 Fredo’s song ”Jealous” ft. Kendrick Lamar was premiered via Rap Radarand received rave reviews with Billboard magazine calling it “_a malicious collaboration_“. This was the first offering off Fredo’s debut EP Trapping Ain’t Dead, which was subsequently released directly on iTunes on November 19th, 2013 via his own record label Savage Squad Records with features from artists like Kendrick Lamar and Chief Keef, and production by Young Chop,Lex Luger, Tarentino, and more.
The EP debuted on #34 in Soundscan’s top 200 Rap Albums the week of its release and peaked at #6 on iTunes Rap and Hip-Hop charts and #31 on all Albums charts during the day of its release.
Tickets for Fredo Santana’s NYC show are only $15 advance with a limited number of Meet and Greet packages for $100. Get your tickets here
One of the fastest rising recording artists has to be none other than Jacksonville, North Carolina’s own Chox-Mak. He has been making his rounds in the media for a while now and is now starting to get the attention he well deserves. With his mixtape “Cross Colours And Starter Jackets” in the works he has decided to give the people something else that isn’t featured on the project to visualize. “No Weapons” is a track that promotes positivity and tries to bring down all the negative things that are happening out in the world. The meaning behind “No Weapons” is to use your mind as a weapon and no one can stop you from reaching your goals. Chox-Mak looks to inspire his generation rather than feed into the negativity. This visual is definitely something to watch it also shows the struggles of everyday life and how you need to keep pushing to become something great in life. The production behind this track is brought to you by Coaste Beats and was shot by Rock Royal Armani Films.
