About Freddie Dredd:
Freddie Dredd gained initial notoriety as a member of the Doomshop/Sixtet Collective of underground artists, Freddie Dredd’s success sparked in 2019, fueled by his popularity on TikTok, whose users were drawn to his vibey combination of ethereal samples and hard-hitting production. His single “Cha Cha,“ struck gold, racking up over 50 million streams on Spotify alone. Freddie trended on TikTok again that year with his bossa nova-sampling single “Opaul.”
It wasn’t long before the irreverent and grainy-toned Canadian-born rapper and producer, Freddie Dredd, proved his music would have a global reach. Based in Oshawa, Ontario. Freddie has carved out his own lane in music, blending gritty, lo-fi sounds, vintage samples, and intense—often dark—lyrics to craft a world of his own, he lures his listeners in on. His unique sound offers deep traces of phonk, echoing his love for southern hip-hop, and even alternatively illuminating the impact metal bands have had on him, from Korn to Meshuggah. In 2020 he released his debut EP with RCA Records, the critically lauded Suffer with his ongoing production partner Ryan C. Bold and daring, Freddie’s music takes inspiration from the horrorcore and dark trap of ’90s Memphis, TN; something he discovered by accident during his teenage years,
Evolving his persona even further, in 2022 he released his debut album Freddie’s Inferno. A bold macabre of lyrical bends, with a predilection for distortion, the project spawned the runaway hit “Limbo.” Now with over 110 million streams on Spotify alone, the boosted ground-shaking, bass-heavy track found its way even into the zeitgeist of online gaming with Call of Dutyvia fan-made videos, further catapulting the track’s consumption. Flashing a dark sense of humor in his viscerally over-the-top lyrics, the young rapper leverages extreme imagery, damning metaphors and creative threats to embolden his rap persona, that often finds itself a split between Hannibal Lecter and the Lucifer himself. The album debuted in the Top 10 of the Spotify Global Charts, and as 2022 wrapped, Freddie celebrated surpassing over 1 billion streams as an artist, collectively; and headlined a 20-city tour powered by Rolling Loud. Freddie invited us to revisit his inferno, with the release of Freddie’s Inferno Deluxe, which saw him perform bonus album tracks across the country, such as fan favorite “Five Nights” featuring Danny Brown, including while at July 2023’s Rolling Loud Miami. As he embraces fans, new and old, while performing sold out shows on tour with $uicide Boy$, Ghostemane and City Morgue, including the iconic Madison Square Garden stage, Freddie is ripe to release a plethora of new music. He’s prepared a special variety pack EP, titled Freddie Must Die, to be led by upcoming singles “Rockefeller” and “Plenty Guns,” he’s slowly started teasing on his socials.
