Peaking as high as number two on the R&B/Hip-Hop albums Billboard chart, “All We Got Iz Us” gave listeners 12 tracks packed with hardcore and aggressive vibes, which touched on wealth inequality and much more.
“For this Ewing shoe we went back to where Onyx came up – 131st and Rockaway Blvd. These were the streets where we dreamed of getting out the hood, the streets where people got shot and sold drugs, where we learned to fight and learned to be men. It’s South Side for life – matter of fact, NYPD arrested us on 131st when we were shooting ‘Da Nex’ video,” recalled Fredro speaking to Ewing Athletic.
