Boston has a hidden jewel in its
Meet EDDY FISH, trapper turned rapper,
with more real stories than a New York
skyscraper. “My music is a dose of reality.
No third-party tales, this is all ME.”
EDDY always dabbled and wrote rhymes
but his focus was on the streets, not the studio.
That is, until things in the street became
too perilous and his sixth sense told him to
fall back. Smarter than most, EDDY followed his
gut and decided it was the perfect time to take his
aspirations of becoming an artist seriously.
He began writing and recording songs for a
mix-tape he would name, “Real N*ggas Know”.
It was released on DATPIFF.com and yielded an
awesome response. It was listened to just
under 20,000 times! From presentation to
production, “Real N*ggas Know”, was a solid project.
This was the confirmation EDDY needed. He was
ready to get into the music industry and make his
mark. A self-motivated man, he reached out to
Yo-Gotti, who was on the come-up at the time,
for a feature and Yo obliged. “Whole lotta money”
was the result. The single was viewed over 100,000
times on YouTube!
He continued to work with Yo-Gotti and eventually
toured with him. He names Yo as one of his influences.
“Going on tour with Yo-Gotti was a great learning experience.
I had a front row seat to how things work in the industry.
It gave me a blueprint to follow and I'm grateful for that.”
EDDY has since collaborated with other big names such
as Blac Youngsta on the track, “GOALZ” and most
recently, Gucci Mane on the track, “HECTOR”.
“Gucci came to Boston looking for an artist who was
serious about the game to do a feature with him. The town
pointed him in my direction. It feels good to know that
people are noticing the hard work I’m putting in.”, said EDDY.
Clearly his reputation precedes him. He is well-respected in the
streets of Boston as a boss and in the rap game as a skilled artist on the rise.
“I want the fans to know that I will not disappoint them. I have a vision for
this. There are other artists out of Boston trying to break into
the industry and I would love to be on that first wave. I want to be a part of
shaping what's coming out of my town to bring everyone together.”
EDDY’s label, SMG (SkyWay Music Group) is currently in its grassroots stage
building up to be a major label that can support other artists.
We have no doubt that EDDY FISH has the talent and the intelligence to
do exactly what he's envisioned. His music is currently available on
SoundCloud and YouTube. Check out his latest videos below, “HECTOR”
