Following the release, Durk goes to explain exactly what he means by the album title:
“When I be saying I’m the voice, I don’t be tryna like, tryna run n*ggas or tell ’em what to do or nothing like that. I just feel that the streets’ll listen to me, and I’m saying that shit different.”

Fredo – Money Can’t Buy Happiness

After a long wait, West London rapper, Fredo, finally dropped his sophomore album – ‘’Money Can’t Buy Happiness’’.

Explaining why the album took such a long time to drop, Fredo says:
“I want to apologise for the wait. I had a whole different style album that didn’t really mean anything to me. Meanwhile a lot was going on in life that I was angry and confused about…”

“Money Can’t Buy Happiness” follows recently released singles – “Scorpion” and “What Can I Say.” The album sees Fredo bringing on board guest appearances from Pop Smoke, Santan Dave, Young Adz on Burner On Deck and Summer Walker.
