Fridayy’s solo career has also yielded great results, as his now a Grammy nominated artist, for his contributions to DJ Khaled’s God Did.

Fridayy stopped by the station of his hometown to chop it up with Mina SayWhat tell his coming of age story and what is was like growing up in Philly! Coming up in Olney, he said it was pretty much like the usual ‘big family, little resources’ household. He grew up very family oriented and says music has always been a big part of his life as the house had sounds from all around the world.

“I grew up in a Haitian household, so it was a lot of Haitian music, Afro-beat music, and Jamaican music” Fridayy explained. “Boyz II Men was one of the first Philly groups I (heard of) in middle school. Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, I was on all of them”

Fridayy also spoke on his self-titled album, the process in making the album, and what it was like to walk with the greats of the music industry!
