FT started his foray into to the world of Hip Hop as a teenager in 1998 with his independently (Tru Criminal Records) released singles “ Problems”, “Metal Thangz” featuring East Coast Underground heavyweights O.C. & Pharaoh Monch and “Don’t Trust Anyone”. These records were very successful, selling over 100,000 copies and was heard all over underground radio and college stations across the US and abroad.
Eventually FT was heavily recruited by the legendary Stretch Armstrong and signed to his Spit Inc. imprint which was distributed through Sony Records. Unfortunately, due to Sony Records lack of support for their Hip-Hop artists’, FT parted ways with both Sony and Spit Inc. before tensions arose.
Relentless in his pursuit of his dreams, FT continued to record and perform at various outlets. This persistence led him to another situation with mega movie company New Line Records. After appearing on several blockbuster movie soundtracks such as: Rush Hour 2 (“Brolic”), Final Destination 2 (“John F. Hennessey”), Friday After Next (“Sex, Drugs, Alcohol & Lies”), All About The Benjamins (“Money All The Time”) and others, FT was ready to make his mark in Hip-Hop music. Due to the ill-advised (now defunct) Tru Criminal Records release of the compilation album “The Anti-Backpack Movement”, parent company New Line Records decided to halt the finances for FT’s project.
Frustrated with management and label politics, FT and all parties amicably parted ways. Since then FT has been featured on various Mix Tapes throughout the world from some of the most respected DJ’s in the Mix Tape circuit, including DJ Kay Slay, DJ Elite, DJ Green Lantern DJ Absolute and others.
After dealing with his first and second round of label politics, middlemen and “industry puppets”, FT has experienced a “breathe of fresh air”. Teaming up with his longtime friends’ Musicman (Producer/Engineer) and A-OK(Producer/Artist/Businessman) to form Stand Out Music.
FT is working on his untitled debut album, which will be released by his imprint Stand Out Music. The entire Hip Hop community will finally get to hear what some industry insiders are dubbing “The craziest artist in the game in most recent history”.
