Fly Guy Juke from Dallas, Texas
How did you get started in music?
I was born April 1,1991 (Yes Aprils fools day lol ) I am the youngest brother of three, I use to sit back and listen to my two older brothers and step bros freestyle everyday after school, at the time i was like 13 and hadn't truly understood the basis of music, it always gave me a feeling of bonding and freedom...when i was in high school i was super shy (im talking pure anxiety at the thought of mingling with others, not because i was scared but i just never felt like they could relate to me. (They were busy thinking about how to get laid and i was thinking about Drawing and Anime and how to get paid)
Around my my sophomore year i started to play around and record songs on the schools free program called audacity... (This is when Myspace was very popular), a week later almost everyone at my school was listening to my music,it was crazy yet cool..so i basically used music as my extended voice and eventually fell in love with it.... i was Born in Dallas,Tx but my sound is completely different.
Who influenced your music and why?
My favorite rapper and biggest influence is Donald Glover (Childish Gambino ) We share all of the same passions such as Film writing ,Music and just not being afraid to be "Weird" To me he made it cool to say "Hey im different, and not all Black artist have to be Thug rappers" (First "Rapper " i have ever seen just sit care free indian-style with no shoes on,no big chains,No gimmicks while being interviewed on major chan ) The guy just makes Dope music all around for whatever genre he feels,and that's pretty much the same wave im on.
.Any mixtapes or albums coming out soon?
I have a song that me and another artist cooked up called "Zombie Walking " And it will be released In October along side a pretty spooky visual im pretty excited about it , especially since im directing the video myself , its like the best of both worlds. I have a 6 track EP that im working on called "Chloroforming Colors " I dont have a release date yet But when i drop it you will definitely be the first to know
.What are your aims for music?
My aim in music to just create the art that that i love and use this platform to take care of my Family and my son Josiah, because every Real man hates to see anyone struggle especially your own family. I ask my mom all the time what her favorite car is and what type of big house on the hills she wants. She worked her ass off for three kids and i think its time to return to favor and turn all of her dreams into a reality , and i know my music is what will one day make this come true.
