LISTEN: Freeway Rick's Nephew Gerreddi Drops A New Album "Ready Or Not"

Gerreddi is making some big moves in the DMV with his latest single and new album.

Gerreddi is an artist from Washington DC, who happens to be the nephew of Freeway Rick Ross, who also serves as his manager.

A D.C. native, Delante “Gerreddi” Hines has made quite a splash in the DMV area with his new smash single “What’s Happenin.”

In addition to taking DC radio by storm, the song is also being used as an opener for the Washington Wizards basketball games.

Gerreddi discovered his passion for writing poetry at a very young age. It became an early escape route for the only child and helped him get thru the daily struggles of life.

Eventually, the temptation was more than he could resist, and he reverted to a fast lifestyle of violence. This led Gerreddi to incarceration, where he realized that he was on a road to nowhere. It didn’t take long for this young soldier to recognized that he had a way with words and his talent was soon evident when he would engage in ciphers against other competitive rappers in the hood.

Gerreddi just released his new album Ready Or Not, distributed through Empire on New Years Day.

The first single off the album is “Risk My Life,” which was produced by Floyd Mayweather/TMT producer 101 Da Exclusive.

Gerreddi decided to release this album because he released nine different mixtapes over the years and never dropped an all original album with original beats.

He also was fighting a serious case while writing this album because he thought he was going to prison.

"Ready Or Not" is available on all digital platforms for streaming.
