[Video] Fredo Santana: “Ova Here”

Over the past year and a half, a sort of “next up” mentality has been established amongst the Chicago hip-hop scene. Chief Keef gave way to Reese, then there was Chance, then Vic, Durk, the list goes on. One artist that has seen his profile rise in recent months is veteran southside MC Fredo Santana, who has migrated from being auspiciously behind the scenes to playing the villain in Drake’s cinematic video for “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”

Today we get the latest from Fredo, a video for his single, “Ova Here”, off his recent album, Trappin’ Ain’t Dead. In the video, Fredo takes viewers to his side of town, warning against making the trip themselves. Following the WorldstarHipHop documentary The Field that highlighted the plight of young adults in the city’s rough neighborhoods, Fredo continues to tell his tale. Watch the latest, streaming below.
