From the gritty streets of South Jamaica Queens, to his critically acclaimed mixtapes like “Long Overdue”, “The Concrete Jungle” and his recently released EP “Fukk Fame”, Greg “Frenchie” Hogan, an original member of Brick Squad Monopoly, Hip Hop Artist and label owner of the recently launched Protekted Records is a visionary who implements his amazing capacity for music in each and every masterpiece that he works on. A Queens native, and Atlanta transplant Frenchie, was exposed to the many hardships of his environment but was determined to succeed and not become a product of it.
“To be honest, I grew up around a lot of ignorance. The older people that I looked up to, they were jackers; robbers. I was a part of it, too; but I always wanted more.” Frenchie displays a brutal honesty in describing his come up.
Using music as a path to achievement, fourth-grade ciphers graduated to sixth-grade battles, and circumstantial yet pre-destined familial ties led to music as the only career option. “My family runs deep – my cousin Bimmy used to be an A&R at Def Jam, and DJ Hurricane – my uncle – was the Beastie Boys’ DJ.” Add that to the fact that Debra Antney is his aunt, and Waka Flocka is his blood cousin you see how Frenchie wasn’t left with much of a choice – succeed in music, or stay in the hood.
A constant tour de force of videos, work, and tours, Frenchie’s Internet presence is a sight to behold: a quick WorldStar search brings forth over forty self-produced music videos, and his YouTube presence includes videos spanning back several years, and millions of collective views.
Showing no signs of slowing up, Frenchie’s onslaught will continue with the release of his debut album, scheduled to drop this summer. The album will feature B.O.B, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Jerry Wonda, Migos, Yo Gotti and more. Having done features with a broad range of Southern stars (Juicy J, Project Pat, Yung Joc, Gorilla Zoe, Soulja Boy), family members (Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Wooh Da Kid), and East Coast up-and-comers (French Montana, John Depp, Webstar, and the late G. Baby), Frenchie’s groundwork has laid a solid, universal foundation. Success is only a step away.
