This past Friday FT Hopout debuted his Go Getta Visions directed video for “Raw Dawgs” on HypeBeast.
Hailing from Compton’s Fruit Town, this Los Angeles rapper made a mark on the L.A. scene in March of 2016 when he released his viral single “I’m From Fruits,” produced by Kamaar G5.
Known early on for being more of an introvert and keeping thoughts to himself, FT HOPOUT found that music was his only escape from the violent world around him.
“When I decided to turn my negatives into positives, I set an objective. My name, FT HOPOUT means Fight.To.Help.Out.People.Open.Up.Today,” he said.
No stranger to performing around LA, FT HOPOUT has graced the stages of popular Hip-Hop venues across LA like Secret Sunday’s, DTLA NOVO and Original Mike’s so he’s familiar with taking his act on the road.
Now this young upstart has songs with Almighty Suspect, 1.TakeJay and BlueFace in the works that are sure to add to his rapidly growing buzz in SoCal.
“Hip-Hop and Rap Music to me means. Culture, representation and being able to represent yourself in the best way you know how. Overall it’s music, but it means so much to me.”
