Meet Fredaysha Fluker

Today we’d like to introduce you to Fredaysha Fluker.

Fredaysha, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’ve been rapping since I was about 11 years old. I’m from a very small town in Alabama and there wasn’t really much to do, so I kind of found out that rapping was my thing.

I would freestyle at school every day at lunch and on three ways with my friends, I even started writing poetry. I just really loved putting words on paper and expressing myself. Rapping really taught me a lot about myself. Being that I come from a small town, I never really thought that I could have a career as a rapper, it was just always a hobby to me. I was really smart, so I ended up excelling in school and put rapping on the back burner because it was just my hobby. I ended up moving to Texas where I graduated high school. I started college at 15 years old, so school was my main focus. I still would rap at home.

I ended up going off to college to study criminal justice/business and that was my day to day life. I started to feel like something was missing though like school was just not enough mentally. It was honestly too easy for me and I like challenges. I started back rapping like actually taking it seriously like posting on Facebook and just sending videos to my friends here and there. At the time I was 19, I graduated from college and I honestly did not know the next step. My mom asked me if I wanted to move to California with her and of course, I said yes, I felt like this was my only chance to actually come to California.

The funny part is I used to actually put in my freestyles that one day “I’m a live in Cali” lol and boom I spoke it into existence. I applied for Law School at Loyola and I got in. I moved to California and started working on music as far as trying to make actual songs because all I ever did was freestyle. Fast forward, I graduated with my master’s in Entertainment Law at 22 and now I began to have all the time in the world. I immediately started working on my social media, started writing more songs, started going to the studio, started making money to support rapping and basically anything that could make this dream come true.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I don’t think anything you’re working towards will be easy. The path was definitely not smooth, but only because of distractions. I mean I’ve been around the wrong crowds at one point, in terrible relationships, and just always worrying about money.

The struggles I had were self-inflicted far as low confidence to pursue my dreams and the way I chose to manage my time. Law School was definitely an obstacle because I started taking rapping serious as a career during my time there and it just became very stressful trying to focus on both. I just always struggled with making rapping a priority because when you are out here chasing your dreams in the industry, most times when you start off.. you don’t make any money and I was just moving to California, so I had no friends here really. I just had to learn that it was apart of my process.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I am a rapper, actress, soon to be Lawyer, and I have many other hats. lol, I am known for always grinding. I am Co-Owner of a studio in Downtown LA. You guys should actually follow the business page @genius_studio_dtla on Instagram. and come make music with us. Also, I just dropped my EP Called “Trust the Process,” definitely give it a listen. I just combined my talent and my brains to make it somehow work around music.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If I had to start over, I would have started building my brand as a younger child and I would have shared my vision with my family because they have always been supportive of what I do, but hey they can’t support what they don’t know about.
