Meet Freddy Garcia Rosales of 8th Kind in Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Freddy Garcia Rosales.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Freddy. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Since a child, I enjoyed entertaining people especially making them laugh. I remember freestyle parodies to famous pop songs that were playing at the time keeping the same melody but changing the lyrics for more comic relief. I started to get a feel of how to create songs the more and more I would freestyle and while all of this is going on I was constantly moving and getting myself into the art of the streets like graffiti art. Graffiti Art has a huge Hip Hop influence and is considered one of the elements. Being a creative kid I started making hip-hop songs with the influence of graffiti and the whole lifestyle it carries. Many many hours of music recorded later and I have now released multiple albums, singles, music videos, and performed with some of the greats.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I believe that if you want to make something happen especially making your dreams come true the universe is going to have it over to you but with many hard challenges.

I can’t name a specific struggle off the top of my head but one is being patient and not comparing myself to anyone. Everyone’s story is always different, there are many tips to success but the situation is always going to be different I just had to learn to not rush anything because great things happen when you least expect them to.

Please tell us about your art.
I specialize in rapping with style however I am also a beat maker, music engineer and video director. What sets me apart from others is that I don’t give up. I’m sure many people feel the same about themselves but when I do hang/ talk with other artists they seem to have a doubt .. I just can’t convince myself to quit.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I don’t have a proudest moment but I can say that I am proud of myself for manifesting everything I desire with action. I tell myself that I’m going to make it whether it’s a certain type of beat, a certain kind of song, meeting and working with certain individuals or even seeing myself in a certain place and I just make it happen that makes me proud.
