Get it HERE.
Once again, he moves effortlessly between melodies and signature rapping. Executive produced by Lucci, “Grinding” kicks off the project with poignant rhymes, an irresistible melody and the heart of a hustler. Meanwhile, “Front Row in LA” hinges on a fiery flow and rich production. The stand out “Propane” sees him destroy an airy beat alongside two comrades: YFN Kay and YFN Trae Pound. He makes mama Freda proud…
Check out the full tracklisting below.
Freda’s Son arrives hot on the heels of his December banger “Boss Life [feat. Offset],” which he performed at the inaugural BET Social Awards in January. Within two months’ time, it’s already clocked over 5 million streams, while the cinematic music video surpassed 3.5 million YouTube/VEVO views.
Most importantly, Freda’s Son sets the stage for his anxiously awaited full-length debut, Ray Ray From Summer Hill, arriving very soon. All roads lead to Summer Hill!
Singing and rapping with the same fiery force, YFN Lucci represents the next evolution of the Atlanta sound. Inking a deal with Think It’s A Game Records in 2014, he quietly developed into one of his city’s most powerful voices. Following the success of Wish Me Well, he unleashed Wish Me Well 2 in 2016. It yielded the platinum-certified smash “Key to the Streets” [feat. Migos & Trouble], which amassed over 43.2 million Spotify streams, turned up a high-profile remix with Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, and Quavo, and landed on XXL’s “50 Best Hip-Hop Songs of 2016” and Vibe’s “The 60 Best songs of 2016” list. Forbes proclaimed YFN Lucci among “5 Breakout Hip Hop Artists to Watch This Summer” and Billboard dubbed him one of the “Top 10 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2017”—he’s lived up to those claims with his EP Long Live Nut [Think It’s A Game Records/Warner Bros. Records].
