Heat Exclusive: Fiend Returns with Motivate Chu Video

Grammy nominated/BMI songwriting award winner Fiend returns with his latest mixtape installment “1st Rolex”. Contrary to popular belief, the rapsy emcee is not literally referring to owning the high-end chronograph. “First Rolex is that first aha moment. That first experience in your own life that you really consider to be special,” said Fiend to the Heat Magazine.  

A No-Limit Records superstar, Fiend also known as International Jones, carries the moniker Mr. Whomp Whomp and Capital FI as a badge of honor. During his humble beginnings, he became professionally known as Fiend due to his love for rapping and writing lyrics. Coincidentally, he pays homage to Rakim, who many refer to as the GOAT, and his classic hit “Microphone Fiend”.

The Heat Magazine had the opportunity to chop it up with Fiend prior to the release of his new Jet Life hosted mixtape. He wanted to lace our readers with his new video “Motivate Chu”, directed by Dexstr8dope.  The multi-faceted artist has been in a reflective mind state lately and his thoughts are accentuated musically. “I’m in a good place mentally. I have clarity on a lot of things in life.”
