The South Florida native is picking up momentum and showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. With a goal of going against the grain, Fukkit has made quite a name for himself while continuing to test the limits of different genres.

Despite the seemingly apathetic nature of his stage name, every lyric, beat, and track is deliberate and finely-tuned to pack a punch of rap, metal and punk. Fukkit came to fruition after recording his very first freestyle over the instrumental to MF DOOM’s “Meatgrinder” and realizing he needed a name to accompany his first song.

“I’m loud. I’m abrasive; I’m in your face. I say things you may or may not agree with. But I’m still me,” Fukkit explains. “I broadcast the exaggerated thoughts from deep within myself. It’s just me jotting down the things I wanna say but sometimes won’t.”

The relentless, full-throttle nature of his music can be attributed to his affinity for rock music as well as artists such as Eminem, Earl Sweatshirt, Snubnose Frank, JPEGMAFIA, Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., Robb Bank$ and more.

“I just want people to hear my music and feel free. If you want to scream, scream. If you want to dance, dance. Just let go,” he says.

Inarguably one of the hottest artists in South Florida, Fukkit was born and raised in Hialeah, close to the Amelia Earhart Park. After starting his day with a wake & bake session, he’s either working in the studio or plotting out his next move. During the rare times when he’s not honing his craft, he can be found hopping around Miami, lost in his own thoughts.

"I started rapping at the age of 17 and haven’t stopped ever since. I love every single part of the creative process."

Now a successful solo artist, Fukkit’s five most popular songs on Spotify have amassed more than 43 million plays. His 2018 hit “Flashbang,” produced by Dutchman, is nearing 14.5 million plays on YouTube while more than 57,000 devoted SoundCloud fans and over half a million Spotify listeners await every new track.

“I started rapping at the age of 17 and haven’t stopped ever since. I love every single part of the creative process. I didn’t feel like a ‘pro’ until I was about 21 and realized this is my career; it was paying more than my regular 9-5 job. I’m making music that’s gaining millions of streams independently and organically… That’s when I realized I was ready.”

Collaborating with brands such as DeathWorld clothing and the skating company Deathwish are on Fukkit’s list, as well as FUCT (Friends U Can’t Trust) clothing and FTP (Fuck The Population) clothing. In fact, if any of these brands are reading this, go ahead and hit Fukkit’s line.

Though he’s known for his unapologetically aggressive lyrics and sound, he can easily flip the switch for more subdued tracks such as “Kanye West,” released in May 2021. Even on a relaxed beat, Fukkit’s expertise is undeniable as scathing quip after quip pours from his songs. He transforms the mundane into the unexpected, the usual into foreign. The farthest thing from a clout-chasing rap clone, he can turn a rap about playing video games and just getting through the day into an instant trap metal classic.

Growth and progression is the answer. Never dead, always flourishing and expanding.

‘Destroyer’ is Fukkit’s first full-length studio project released after more than five months work on October 25, 2020. The 17-track album is bolstered by two bonus tracks and watches the artist pay homage to his roots with heavy-hitting bangers before venturing into a more melodic mode for the second half of the project.

“Destroyer was created over the course of several months during a period when I was experiencing a lot of pain and grief,” he explains. “Destroyer was a metaphorical representation of how I felt about myself. I believed I was a “destroyer” of things: relationships, friendships, and experiences. I wanted to create something that sounded like chaos… which is how I felt deeply but never elaborated on at the time.”

Keep an eye out for Fukkit’s upcoming project, his favorite thus far, “Impending Doom.”

“To all my fans and supporters: I love you so much. I wouldn’t be anything in this music shit without you. Thank you for listening, thank you for watching me grow, and thank you for trusting me. To anyone I’ve let down: I’m not sorry because I’m trying my best.”
