(HEAT EXCLUSIVE) Brick Squad Monopoly’s Frenchie, making his work ethic pay off

We hear from a lot of artists who just have music in their blood. So it is with Brick Squad’s Frenchie.

Frenchie most definitely has music coursing through his veins. His cousin, Waka Flaka Flame, is one of the hottest rappers in the game right now – and Frenchie is a point man on the Brick Squad roster, a roster that contains some of the biggest names in hip hop.

During his most formidable years, Frenchie traveled between Brooklyn and Atlanta, giving his music a unique perspective and sound. He’s a multi-faceted artist, to say the least, and he’s a talented spitter. With his lineage, he can’t help but flourish in a musical environment.

Frenchie grew up during the crack epidemic and has seen and experienced quite a bit. Having been shot twice, he is a true survivor and that makes for an interesting take on life, as evidenced by his music.

The Heat caught up with this most interesting artist and here’s what he had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Growing up, what artists influenced you musically?

FRENCHIE: I was inspired a lot by people like Run DMC, LL Cool J and others from my NYC background.


THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Since you have lived in two of the most influential areas to rap music, how do you think that influenced your own personal style?

FRENCHIE: It gave me best of both worlds with NYC word play and down south hype and wildness.


THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Your motto seems to be honesty, integrity and hard work. Those are great ideals to live by – how do you incorporate that into your music and work ethic?

FRENCHIE: By staying positive and being honest with myself in life and it just brings back positive energy.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Who are some of your favorite music artists?

FRENCHIE: Nas, One Republic & 50 Cent.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Were there any artists in particular who influenced you growing up?

FRENCHIE: Too many to name.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What new projects are in the works for you?

FRENCHIE: FrenchElo Anthony, my new mixtape.
