Frederick Thomas was born on 22 February 1979 and grew up in the bronx where hip-hop started — one of his nicknames was Big Bronx. In the 2000s he emerged as a powerful freestyler in New York rap, pouring reference-dense lines over beats from the songs of other rappers, a tradition in New York.
Fred the Godson began his continued climb to a stardom in New York’s rundown South Bronx ghetto. He spent his early days on 156th & Fox discovering the harsh realities of life, an environment engulfed in drug wars he tried to escape. Rather, Fred was finding shelter within his large family. Though he came from a household of two parents, life was still tough as they struggled to provide for six children. His family had endured many struggles and tragedies in the harsh Bronx ghetto. Fred found himself living a bleak existence at a very young age; particularly after seeing his house burn down, and thus experiencing life in a shelter. Although, despite his circumstances, future prospects seemed dim to Fred, he was still determined to overcome the challenges and thus find a way to conquer his sorrows.
Fred finally enrolled in high school in Monroe, but was influenced by the temptations that brought him off his studies and into the streets. His classmates’ combined stresses and home life impeded him from graduating. Fred’s life had been at a low level. Fred suffered from kidney failure, asthma, and diabetes, in addition to his scholastic disappointments. Clearly a variety of factors have resulted in making Fred’s life more complicated than that of other teenagers his age, but he nevertheless persevered.
Fred the Godson stands out as a superior and worthy artist in an industry so heavily populated with aspiring musicians, each with their own claim to fame. His libretto and style are original and flexible. Its clever flow reflects the quality of the material of his songs. His real life experiences reach his listeners’ psyches allowing them to appreciate a personal atmosphere. Equally significantly, Fred is regularly showing a predisposition to make hit albums. Essentially he is the reality.
Fred The Godson Career
In 2010 he made his breakthrough with the mixtape Armageddon. The video included Busta Rhymes, Cameron, Waka Flocka Flame, Styles P and other guest spots. Fred was later named to the 2011 Freshman Class of XXL, which also included Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Lil B, Meek Mill, Big K.R.I.T., and YG.
Later in 2011, Fred released the City of God mixtape Ganga Grillz, featuring PUSHA-T, Diddy, Meek Mill, Vado, and more. Although his production diminished slightly, not hitting the commercial heights of his peers from XXL 2011, Fred the Godson was a regular presence on hip-hop radio. For Hot97 he freestyled regularly, Sway in the morning, and more.
Cause Of Death (COVID-19)
He posted a photo on April 6 in which he kept his fist closed while breathing with the aid of supplementary oxygen, saying,
“I’m in here with this [COVID] 19 sh–! Please keep me in y’all prayers!!!” His longtime partner and the mother of their two children, makeup artist LeeAnn Jemmott, told XXL on April 10 that she was confident he was “going to make it”
That it was removed from the ventilator, which was at the forefront of several news reports about the pandemic ravaging the United States due to a lack of life-saving equipment.
Jemmott said. “He is fighting and he is winning,” “He has no sign of infection. His heart is strong and working well. His kidneys have been affected, but as of today, he has started dialysis to clean the toxins out of his blood. Fred is going to make it. God is good!”
He suffered from asthma and kidney issues, revealed that via his Instagram account in March he was battling the infection, and asked his fans to keep him in their prayers. His aunt, LeAnn Jemmott, has kept the public up-to-date with his evolution and condition but has not yet written about his death. Frederico who came from The Bronx was one of the sickest on the wordplay ever in New York. And that’s not up to debate.
