Fredo appeared in Drizzy's music video for 'Hold On, We're Going Home' where he plays the guy who kidnaps the Toronto rapper's girlfriend. He was in the process of recording and dropping his latest effort, Walking Legend 2. One of his most recent songs is "Been Savage" released in the fall of past year and has been doing good.

Texas MC Maxo Kream was among the first to post about Santana's passing, writing, "Damn man I'm lost for words right now I'm cryin my ass off Fredo I love yu Bitch RIP a real Savage".
