Fred The Godson‘s had a hard time capitalising on his success as an XXL Freshmen in 2011, especially when you compare him to classmates like Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T. and even YG, but the Bronx spitter soldiers on. Taken from his DJ Drama/Gangsta Grillz-officiated City of God mixtape, which dropped back in November of last year, here we have the accompanying visuals for the “Runnin’ These Streets” cut.
Directed by Taya Simmons, the clip sees Fred recite his rhymes in the heart of his BX neighborhood, proving that he’s very much runnin’ these streets. Mainstream popularity may be coming hard for this emcee, but the lyrical skills certainly aren’t. If anything, Fred The Godson is the traditional New York emcee (ugly looks an’ all, word to Big Poppa).
