ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: FrankieOG

Tell us a little about yourself, what’s your name? where are you from?  What do you do?

My Name is FrankieOG (as in OGkush not original ganster) I chose that name when i was 16 ’cause OG has always been my favorite strain of weed to smoke!
I was born in Moreno Valley CA in 1997. But Ive lived all over the Inland Empire. So im definitely from the IE.
I am a performing & touring artist. I also do all my own songwriting. 

What inspired you to make music in the first place?

 I realized how inspired I was by certain artists and the message they were displaying in their music. Coming from a pretty rough back ground I would always use music as my escape from the real world, I just wanted to be that same inspiration and escape for anybody else who was feeling the same as I was. So thats what inspired me to do music!

What cultures do you draw from for inspiration?

I would say I am very inspired by 90s hip hop culture, conscious rap, and ALOT of CANNABIS culture. These all my top 3 cultures i draw inspiration from.

Do you think an artists upbringing has an impact on their art?

Yes, I truly believe an artists upbringing has a HUGE impact on their art. At least it does on mine, I speak a lot about my past experiences in my music and how I was able to overcome the hard times. But I also love to include the good things that were lived and how I appreciate the blessings. It could also impact their over all view on music and the message they want to spread with their art! 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years in terms of music?

I see myself doing exactly what i’m doing now, just on a much bigger scale. Much more shows & fans, many more tours, and a lot more music! I’m not one to chase the fame or the money. I just want to inspire my listeners to do better and be their best selves! I am an independent artist and plan to stay that way!

Who are your collaborators? Do you think collaboration helps creation? 

My main collaborator and producer is my good friend AALGEE. He produced every track on our Debut EP “forEVER misUNDERSTOOD”, and is gonna continue to produce most of my music. In my case I feel that collaboration does help creation, one vision with two brains that come together can be something beautiful. But it is RARE to find. I have a couple other producers I work with such as NugLife, and A13, So be ready to hear sounds from them as well!!
