One of the most underrated Rappers from New York affectionately known as Frederico aka Gordo aka Fred The Godson has passed on (Thursday April 23) at the age of 35 after contracting coronavirus COVID-19. On April 6 Fred the Godson had sent out a Tweet about being in hospital because of the coronavirus and was subsequently on a ventilator. The Bronx rapper then later passed on and has left behind a wife and two kids.
Fred the Godson was a prolific rapper known to reference the late great B.I.G and Big Pun in his music and to a large extent it always felt like Pun and Biggie where spitting every time he rapped. He worked with countless high profile artists such as Busta Rhymes, Cory Gunz, Meek Mill, Diddy, Pusha T, Jay Pharoah, Rick Ross and more. His artistry and contribution to lyricism and Hip Hop as a whole will be solely missed. RIP Gordo. Thank You for the Music, Motivation and Inspiration.
