Keeping it Grimey with F.L. of The Foodchain
Here at The Grimey Gatsby, we are not only about lifestyle and culture, but the undeniable variables that come with covering such topics. From top to bottom, we keep a finger on the pulse of what’s hot, controversial and provocative. To that end, The Foodchain’s F.L. has been keeping us all high as the sky with his incredible latest release Young Amsterdam. The MC’s rhymes are involved, elaborate and perfectly placed. If you haven’t listened to Young Amsterdam you can do so via DJBooth.net here.
From the spinning hook on “Crazy Things,” to the single “Cameras,” F.L. knows how to capture the audience and make his point known. Even through a cloud of smoke. We decided to chop it up with F.L. using a few off the cuff questions and, as expected, the MC was hilarious, light on his feet and engaging. Check out how we keep it Grimey over here.
Your new album Young Amsterdam is the perfect listen paired with your favorite strain of Mary Jane. Good weed is a staple in Denver. Tell me about the days before the almighty green. When everyone was smoking brick weed.
Fuck I don’t miss those days at all. I was getting shit that smelled like gas, like ass, like dirt! Yuck. I remember finding string, and plastic bag, even hair in my bricks. I’m never going back!
Describe your grimiest hustler’s story.
Aw man. I’ve been in some shitty places doing some shitty things ha-ha. Let’s just say I’ve seen a couple guys get the brakes beat off them, for not coming correct in their dealings 🙂
What’s the one part of your clothing that, if it gets dirty, you have to change IMMEDIATELY.
T-shirt. If I spill some shit like a drink, or sauce from a burger on my shirt it’s a wrap! I can’t be walking around like a damn fool. Hats too.
Favorite meal after a long night/early morning of recording/performing?
Cereal. Don’t judge me, I’m a fat nigga. I like shit like that.
What’s your pre-show ritual?
At least 2 blunts. Prayers to god that we breathing another day, and getting on another stage. A lot of shit talking to my niggas.
Marry, fuck, or murder: Beyoncé, Katy Perry or Adriana Lima?
Marry Katy Perry because she got that pop music bread. Fuck Beyoncé to say I did that shit, and murder Adriana Lima, because I don’t even know who that bitch is.
Two rap trends you’d love to see disappear.
Making shit that’s not dope, and all that A$VPX shit.
Greenback or bad bitch Yellow
Have you ever been in a bar fight?
Not Bar fight, but like drunken frat party fights.
Did you win?
