What made you want to make music?

Growing up I was a big fan of 50 Cent, Kanye West and Kid Cudi. That era of music and the culture behind it made me really inspired to work on my own sound. My older brothers A1Billioniare and Neno.Beat helped me harness my sound and guided me to where I am today.

How did you come up with your musician name?

I came up with my name in 9th grade all my friends use to call me “Lil Fiji” so it like grew on me suddenly. I named my Macintosh HD hard drive “Fijimacintosh”. And one day it clicked to me like that’s futuristic and that’s what I am – the future – so it worked. 

You have an album called ‘Satellite Crash’. What was the process like making this album and what is your favourite song from your album?

This tape is the evolution of a melodic butterfly. It’s me pushing the edge of culture and finding myself and going through real-life experiences converting it into a sonic movie to introduce myself to the world. My fav song from the tape is Pain Heals and Fade Away.

What is your genre of music?

The Future.

Your two singles called ‘Millennium’ featuring ‘KiD TRUNKS’ and ‘Glock Box’ featuring ‘noirullsions’ both exploded with over 2.93 million and 1.03 million views on respectively, how did you react and did you expect for both of the songs to do so well?

I didn’t expect any of the songs to do so well honestly. I just put them out there for the world to hear. After XXXTENTACION took notice to Glock Box, everything exploded from there. 

We also know you are close friends with ‘Trippie Redd’ and ‘a1billionaire’, can you tell us about how you started these close friendships with them?

Well actually Trippie Redd is my first cousin and A1Billionaire is my older brother so there was really no start to these relationships, we just were always just growing up in the same houses. Trippie then got interested in making music because I was rapping at such a young age which got him inspired to start making his own music.

What is the message you want to pass on to your thousands of fans and newcomers that listen to your music?

I want my fans and newcomers to know that you can do whatever you want to do and still be successful. Manifest and it shall prosper.

When your’re not producing or making music, what do you do in your spare time?

When I am not making music, I am always thinking of ideas to better myself not only as a musician but as a person.

Are you planning on making more collaborations with more artists?

Yes, but not too many. I am selective with my sound.

Any advice for any students getting into music?

Yeah, just be yourself and don’t let anyone tell you how to do it or hold you back.
