Freakey - Class of 2020



Where are you from?

Saint Leonard

What’s your daily routine?

I wake up super early, meditate then I go straight to my laptop to make beats. I probably make 5-6 beats a day.

How would you describe your craft?

Authentic, Reckless, Magnificent all of that.

When do you feel the most creative/What’s the vibe when you’re making music?

It’s kind of tough, it varies a lot for me, sometimes it’s the morning. I like to make music alone, I don’t want influences around me, that’s why I don’t really collaborate with other producers because I feel like that’s not me 100% you feel me?

What about WondaGurl?

With her, it’s super different. When we’re at the studio we don’t even speak, we really understand each other musically. I let her do what she wants and she does the same with me, so the final product is super authentic.

How did you end up producing for Don Toliver?

I was in the studio with my manager and I was like you know what? I’m going to make a crazy turnt beat, I made it in 10 minutes. Two weeks later I was in Toronto with WondaGurl and she told me that Don Toliver used the beat.

What did you want to be as a kid?

I wanted to play in the NBA and I always loved music so I just transitioned from basketball to making beats.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?

Honestly, LA. I really like the vibe out there, hidden hills all of that. I also love Paris, I feel like I’m in the early 2000s when I’m in Paris, it’s hard to explain. I love it there.

What’s your favourite song of all time and why?

Get Rich Or Die Trying

What’s next for you?

Same grind, influence more people, get more plaques. Keep all the positive energy around me.
