“Players do what they want and suckas do what they’re told. We lay back and do the fly sh*t.” – Freck Billionaire.
That was a testimonial from an emcee inspired by Robb Report (Magazine) and the streets. “From the Block to the Yacht,” DXNEXT takes a closer look at the freckled face microphone controller.

Career sum up: “I got sh*t in the oven baking on 350, until I feel like the turkeys done. When the turkeys done, then I get people involved with the program. Other than that, I’m taking my time. I really don’t need them for the money. I’m a realest so, I know when my turkeys ready to come out of the oven.”
Three words to describe the music: “Fly, cool and real…just like the insect, just place a wing in, right here: ___.”

Freck’s perception of Hip Hop: “It’s a way of life. To sum it up in one word, it’s a culture. The way people look at and perceive things; all the way from the way people talk, what they think is cool…you know? It’s a lifestyle. It’s like it’s own religion. Some people have followers, that copy the way they dress, look, act-it’s a major thing to me."
Message to the people: “I’m the best bar for bar. B-A-R, 4 B-A-R. I’m the best rapper out, old or new and keep looking for me. Thanks to all my people for supporting me. If you don’t support me, be looking out because I’m coming.”
