Fred Da Godson


Too Fat MC= Fred Da Godson

Fat: Slang. 1) Especially profitable or advantageous work.
2) plump; well-fed

On a regular Saturday afternoon in the Bronx New York somewhere near Tremont Avenue, its rare that one would find a upcoming rapper with ties to industry heavyweight Puff Daddy shopping amongst the natives. But Lo and behold, just over my shoulder in a Yankee fitted stood Fred Da Godson.
I yelled out to Fred and expressed my appreciation for his meticulous rap flow. The humble MC shook my hand and stated “I’m going hard this year”.
Who can argue with him?
Well, to really understand Fred Da Godson one would have to go back in time. Born Fredrick Thomas in a household of six other kids in the early 80’s, Fred had a rough beginning. He battled Asthma, diabetes and Kidney disease before embarking on his music career. Raised in the South Bronx, son of a Security guard who worked at the famous Hip Hop club ‘The Tunnel,’ Fred was always secretly dreaming of becoming rap royalty. His determination and perseverance propelled him to start recording with TBM/Blockwork Entertainment. Somehow Fred knew embarking on a rap career would be challenging. Fred started flowing under the radar before connecting with fans via Online. Instantly Fred Da Godson took off into another stratosphere with his Mix tape hustle. He released “They Call ME Flow” and followed up with “American Gangster”. His work ethnic sparked recognition in the form of being named
‘Best Male Rapper’ of 2007 during the Underground Music Awards.
Coincidentally, his next Mix tape ‘Armageddon’ pushed the ‘Too Fat MC’ into the public’s eye with Radio spins and numerous industry collaborations.
The street anthem “Let’s Toast To That” featuring JadaKiss ignited a bidding war for Fred’s lyrical services. Things have now changed for the Upcoming MC evident by the crowd forming around him while shopping. Watching Fred from a distance I noticed the tired look on his face while signing autographs. Hopefully, the FAT MC will get some much needed rest…Things will heat up soon.
Currently, he’s being actively pursued by Interscope, DefJam, Roc Nation and Bad Boy labels to name a few. The sudden demand of his music has placed Fred Da Godson in the driver’s seat. Lately his career is being co-piloted by Hip Hop heavyweight Shawn Prez (Bad Boy) who took on the role of becoming Fred’s personal manager. The Bad Boy mogul Puff Daddy is aboard in some capacity yet to be revealed.
For now, we sit patiently. Watching, Waiting, Hoping and Rooting for the “Too Fat” MC to hold it down. We’ll see once his album entitled “Flawless Victory” drops. 
       Until then… don’t bet against Fred. He’s too ‘Phat’.

SPORTS & THOUGHTS

NBA JAM SESSION Hottest coach in the NBA has to be OKC Thunder Scott Brooks as he leads his team to the top of the Western Conference. Friends say: "Wait until the Western Finals." I say: "Put your money where your mouth is." For one Serge Ibaka looks like Super Big Man, Kevin Durant looks focused, Russell Westbrook looks for shots, and I'm looking for a sucker.
Trust me, it works.
Not for nothing, speaking of work...It looks like Kobe Bryant of the LA Lakers and Derek Rose of the Chicago Bulls will be collecting unemployment checks for a few months after re-injuring themselves. By the way, that's two of the top selling jerseys in the NBA.
Speaking of Jersey, I really miss Tony Soprano. That's me imitating old school Nets fans after they moved a mediocre team to Brooklyn.
Meanwhile down in South Beach... Lebron James and Dwayne Wade move in unison to their own tune although I'm convinced Chris Bosh only sings backup. Hey, it worked for Robert Horry and

Welcome Back Andy Pettitte

Christmas comes early in the Bronx. Fresh off testifying in his buddy Roger Clemens trial, Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte lands in the Bronx on Mothers Day. His arrival caused quite a stir within baseball circles. Yankees manager Joe Girardi says it best, “I’m excited” while speaking of Andy Pettitte’s return to the Yankees rotation, “I think it will be a great day at the stadium.”

Enough said.

The return of Andy Pettitte highlights a mediocre pitching staff who ranks 11th in the American League with 5.54 ERA. Aside from CC Sabathia, Yankees pitching has more suspects than a line up. Staffed with young pitchers like Phil Hughes and Ivan Nova, a veteran presence may help transform a fragile rotation.

Not so fast.

 Andy Pettitte had a 4.55 ERA in six starts…in the minors. Major League hitters are probably licking their lips while waiting for Andy Pettitte’s return. The first big league test comes on Mothers Day against hard hitting Seattle Mariners.

Some say Pettitte command was off in the …

'EAZ' ... The Grand River Hustler

Being from the Bronx has never been an automatic EZ PASS for any rapper. Just ask debut artist EAZ. "No way, not at all. I actually had to battle a few people just to make it out my hood." He says while completing the photo shoot for his upcoming Mix Tape entitled Grand River. After being privy to hanging out with a few Bronx rappers, I've come to some rather disturbing similarities amongst the chosen few. For one, most can recite rhymes from the legendary blastmaster  KRS ONE, they all speak highly of Big Pun and they usually have a friend who knows a friend who knows Fat Joe.
"Its a jungle out there....." said the old school tune. Nowadays, the business of rap can be an obstacle course in itself. Let alone the street credibility and other secondary mishaps that can make or break a rapper. Ask Mysonne. Ask Chi Ali. The list goes on and on. But somewhere within walking distance of Cedar Park (birthplace of Hip Hop) lies a young animal destined to conquer the terr…
