Weekend Work - Fred The Godson

As the first few weeks back in New York City went by, I found myself continuing forward as a visual producer for Weekend Work. The city’s relentless energy seemed to seep into my bones, driving me to work harder and push myself to new limits. However, there was a dark undercurrent beneath the surface of my newfound motivation – my alcohol abuse was making it difficult to keep up with the same workload I had tackled during my time in NJ. Waking up to missed calls from Storm would send my anxiety skyrocketing as I scrambled to get myself together and head over to Sirius XM studios. I was back in the city, but things felt different. My drinking was getting in the way of me being present for Storm, and I was struggling to balance everything going on in my life. That day, the guest for the show would be Fred The Godson, a well-known rapper of whom I was a huge fan. With the Shade 45 studio under renovation, we met Coach PR and DJ Caesar in a studio on another floor. I was there to capture the interview that was about to unfold. As I set up my equipment, I couldn’t help but reminisce about the countless hours I had spent watching Fred The Godson’s freestyles online. I had always been amazed by his lyrical prowess and his ability to captivate an audience. Seeing him in person was a surreal experience, one that I wished I could fully appreciate without the fog of alcohol clouding my mind. The interview began, and I could feel the energy in the room shift as Fred started to speak. His words flowed effortlessly, weaving intricate stories and painting vivid pictures with his rhymes. As I stood behind the camera, I felt a pang of regret for not being completely present at the moment. My drinking was getting in the way of me appreciating this incredible opportunity, and I knew something had to change.
