Fruitman is one of the newest emcees in the rap game, and is bringing a refreshing sound to the industry. Throughout the many interviews Freddyo.com has done in the past, I must say itâ€™s always good to find someone that is making change.
Respect is one thing I give Fruitman due to his appreciation of hip-hop culture, music in its entirety, and his passion for wanting to produce quality music. Recently releasing his mixtape called â€œThe Point 5â€, Fruitman stops by with Freddyo.com to explain the freshness of his music and staying above the rap game.
Freddyo.com: How did you get the name the Fruitman?
Fruitman: That name basically came from my reputation in the streets of Atlanta and Columbus. You know, thatâ€™s what they call me in the streetsâ€¦(chuckles)

You see, people get in the booth and rap about other peoplesâ€™ lives.Â So I guess I was inspired byâ€¦not only all types of music, like gospel, Jay z, Rockâ€¦but also those studio gangstas who just rap about what they see, you feel me? Got to give you my storyâ€¦ READ MORE
