Guess what, readers: I just vibed out to a new single from Fredo Santana, featuring guest bars from none other than Kendrick Lamar. You Jealous? Well don’t be, because the cut’s now available in the Booth for your listening pleasure. Part of the GBE affiliate’s latest street album, this joint opens on a masterful guest 16 from the aforementioned Compton phenom. Rather than trying to outrhyme K. Dot—a virtual impossibility—Fredo stays in his own lane, switching between bellowed bars and a queasy, Auto-tuned delivery. 808 Mafia serves up a syrupy-slow synth/percussion beat to accompany the collaborators’ verses. Fans can find Jealous and many more fresh cuts on the Windy City native’s Trappin’ Aint Dead LP, set for release soon.
