“Limbo” by Freddie Dredd

In a way Freddie Dredd’s “Limbo” song is even more metaphorical than your average rap, with most of said symbolism being related to the addressee being dead or in hell or what have you. It is not specified as to why Freddie is wishing for this person to die and subsequently reside in “limbo”.

But what can be gathered is that the addressee is obviously an enemy. He apparently hates this person to the core. Furthermore it is also such that the vocalist is looking down on this individual.

So in an attempt to explain what’s being put forth more comprehensively, let’s say that the addressee, at least under the estimation of the vocalist, is going through some type of difficult time in his life. And their relationship is such that Dredd is actually encouraging his demise in the process. 

Again, the source of animosity between them is never revealed. But in terms of his disposition, Freddie does proceed to sorta present himself as being a macabre type of guy in general.

    I think this song is brilliant. I have read Dante’s Inferno, and I can tell that this song has many references to it. “Nine more layers than this hell is packin'” refers to there being a Vestibule, as well as nine different layers in Dante’s vision of Hell. “Stuck in the f-ing darkness and it’s cold at heart;” one usually thinks of Hell as being a hot, burning place, but in the Inferno, the final and worst layer which Satan resides is frozen over. I disagree with this article in that the singer wants the person they are speaking to to be in Limbo, rather the speaker seems to suggest that they are in the top (layer) of Limbo and that he feels lucky that he isn’t who he is speaking to, who is in a lower (worse) layer of Hell. To top it off, I believe that is a subtle self-complement, because Limbo was only for the greatest poets and philosophers who didn’t have the faith.
