FREDO BANG UNLEASHES NEW ALBUM UNLV TODAY; WATCH “YA HEARD ME” VIDEO
The nine-track collection highlights his hypnotic hybrid of country and hip-hop threaded together with the pluck of bluesy guitar and the thump of slick 808s. Among many highlights, “Camo Bando” pairs his unrestrained flow with a skittering beat as he namedrops Rambo in between a yeehaw or two. He warns, “Don’t think about taking off with my money. I got it!” Breezy acoustic guitar gives way to trap production on “Buckshot” punctuated by banjo. Then, there’s “Do Si Do” [feat. D Star & Dusty Leigh]. He cooks up a honky-tonk banger with no shortage of twerking or twang. The introspective “Country To The City” chronicles his journey, while “Guitar Strings” hinges on six-string fireworks straight out of the Mississippi Delta as he urges, “So let me know if you want to go,” over fretboard-burning wailing. Meanwhile, Country Trap also boasts his breakout “MAGIC CITY COWBOY” and “COWBOY GANGSTA.”
