The Break Presents: 6Fo

Breakout: “Hometown”

Also Check: “Leggo”

And: “Bang Bang”

Name: 6FO

Age: 24

Reppin’: New Brunswick, NJ

My style and/or skills have been compared to: The Game because of the raspiness in my voice, other than [him] nobody.

I started rapping: I started taking it serious around 2004. It was something that was done coming up in high school, the ciphers and watching it. I was somebody that liked the attention and who had the swagger and the aura. I perfected the rhyming and the craft. When I noticed everyone started liking what I was doing I fell in love with it. I just made sure I got better at it.

Standout moments have been: I’ve performed at big colleges like Rutgers. I’ve performed at club TNY in New York and Club Atrium in Atlanta. The Ghanaian picnic when it was in Orange County New York there was thousands of people there.

How I want listeners to feel after they hear my music: From the rip I want [NJ] to be recognized. We deal with everything that big artists have dealt with. You got Jay-Z in Marcy projects, Rick Ross from Miami all that they deal with we deal with too. I want to bring a magnifing glass over Jersey, over exit 9 and show them we got talent out here because it’s been a long time for Jersey.

I’d Like to Work With: The elites I feel that are doing good like Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, even cross over, [and do a song with] Bruno Mars or Beyonce. I would like to do big records like that.

My goal in hip-hop is: I want to be respected for my talent coming from Jersey since hip-hop has shifted towards the south. I want to help those kids that are kind of lost understand that don’t have to be a bad guy or if they do wrong it’s not over you can still push for positivity.

I’m gonna be the next: I’m one of a kind
