You’re putting out an album right? Tell us about some of the songs you’ve put together for the project and who all will be featured. I got about 5 records done. I got records with Dorrough Music, Paul Wall, Billy Blue, C-Ride. I got production from The Runners, CP Hollywood, House of Pain, Kane is supposed to give me some beats. I’m definitely using 3 of the records for the album. I got “I Be Out Here” featuring Triple Cs and Sean Paul of the Youngbloodz. I don’t have a name for the album yet, but I think I’m going for Street League. When I get about 7 records I’ll probably decide then.

Under the guidance of his mentors DJs Khaled, Wrek, and Black Spliff, Freddy Fred developed his own name as a record breaker in Miami. With a full radio and club schedule, and his debut album in the works, Freddy Fred talks about his come up and his predictions for next artist to blow. Tell us about yourself and your DJ schedule? I run the Street League on Mixx 96.1 FM. That’s the biggest underground station in Miami. I’m in a bunch of clubs. I’m part of the Street League crew, there’s 4 of us, so we all work as a team. We’re at Opium Friday nights, Sobe Live on Fridays and Saturdays, and Lust on Saturdays. How did you get your big break as a DJ? I met my crew The Street League and they put me around Khaled. My big break officially in the industry was DJing with Khaled back ’05. That was when Ross, Brisco, Flo Rida, C-Ride came in the game, we’re all basically in the same crowd.

Who are some artists coming up in the local scene? Who do you think has the potential to blow? There’s a handful of people making noise in Miami – Billy Blue, Mista Mac, Poe Boy has their whole team geared up right now with Brisco. They’re really about to just shit on everybody. Then you’ve got Rich Kidd, from Overtown, he’s signed with Khaled’s We the Best imprint. He’s got two records out right now that are killing every radio station, “We Don’t See Em” and “Y’all Know What’s Up.” I haven’t seen anything like this in a long time. Felony da God is everywhere. Black Dada had the “I’ma Zoe” record and he’s got a couple other records that people are sleeping on. What do you have planned for Memorial Day Weekend? I’ll be at Mansion and Cameo every other night. We have parties with Diddy, Nicki Minaj, the biggest names in the game. Then we’ve got the Best of the Best concert on Sunday hosted by Diddy. Ross is gonna be there, Nicki Minaj, every big reggae artist in the world, everybody you can think of is gonna be there. It’s the Best of the Best. Is there anything else you want to mention? Just look out for the album, and I’ve got radio 4 days a week. My #1 focus is breaking great records. You can check out my videos and music on DJFreddyFred.com and Twitter.com/ DJFreddyFred. //
