Meet Fredrick Temple

Today we’d like to introduce you to Fredrick Temple.

Hi Fredrick , we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I’ve been rapping since I was 12 years old. Going through trials and tribulations made me want to express myself through music. Being on the run nobody understood what I was facing and I never had anybody to turn to nor understand what I was going through so music was my only escape it was my journal when I couldn’t vent to anybody so I started to vent in my music it’s my way of expressing my voice, it’s my safe haven, my escape from the real world when I need to breathe, it’s the fuel that’s burning deep down on the inside of me that keeps me in a place of peace.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No, it’s never been a smooth road faced with murder, loved ones around me dying, trying to pursue music with no support that puts a different flame under your belt as well as being a black man trying to provide for yourself as well as your family and not be another statistic in the world we’re living in today, so it’s never been easy, but it has been worth it because without the rough roads I wouldn’t be the man I am today nor have the hunger I have behind my music and my mindset that I have so I’m forever grateful and humbled.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I paint a picture through my music of my everyday lifestyle the good, the bad, and the ugly no matter who you are you can connect or relate to it in some kind of way. I’m most proud of where I come from I didn’t let my environment or the obstacles I face detour me from where I’m going. What sets me apart from others is my drive for one no one can tell me I can’t because then I’ll have to prove to you that I can secondly, my attitude no matter what’s thrown at me I face its chin up, chest out, keep my faith, and remain positive lastly I’m not afraid to take a chance if I want it I go after it I could take ninety-nine losses that turn into lessons because you can only learn from your mistakes but that one hundred times I’ll find a way and it’ll be worth every lesson I was faced with.
