Grime MC, Fredo, is set to release his debut album in the new year.
The London-born rapper took to Instagram to announce the release of ‘Third Avenue’ on 1 February 2019.
Not only is he releasing an album, but he has also announced a ‘Third Avenue’ tour.
He will be performing around the UK and visiting the likes of London, Glasgow, Dublin and nine other cities.
Fredo made his breakthrough on the rap scene in 2016, releasing his first track, ‘They Ain’t 100’.
His debut single created so much attention that Canadian rapper, Drake, featured the hit in his 30th birthday mix on OVO Sound Radio.
The track is still extremely popular to this day and in an interview with Clash, Fredo admitted: “It’s my finisher; it’s the one they like the most”.
He went on to set the bar high, releasing two more tracks, ‘TrapSpot’ and ‘Pattern Gang’, in the same year.
All three hits were featured on his first mixtape, ‘Get Rich or Get Recalled’, where he talks about his expensive lifestyle and his life on the roads.
Despite being in and out of jail, Fredo proved he was worthy of recognition.
Not long after his debut single, he featured on Kojo Funds and Abra Cadabra’s MOBO award-winning single, ‘Dun Talkin’, along with Yxng Bane, Frisco and JME.
In 2017, Complex included him in their, ’13 British Emcees Destined for A Big 2017”.
They also labelled him as ‘one to watch’ and they weren’t wrong.
We began to see even more success throughout 2017 for the now 23-year-old, as he joined Charlie Sloth for a Fire in the Booth.
He proceeded to land himself a top-five position in the Official UK Album Charts with his second mixtape, ‘Tables Turn’ releasing it alongside his single, ‘Rappin & Trappin’.
On the 13-track-mixtape, the trapper-turned-rapper had features from Not3s, Dave East, Desiigner and many more.
Tickets for ‘Third Avenue’ go on sale on Friday 7 December at 10am. Fredo will be kicking off the tour in Dublin on 25th February 2019.
