FJ Outlaw's Motivation

Florida based country rapper, FJ Outlaw, came on the scene in full force with his first 7 song EP "Shotguns N' Whiskey" which dropped June 3rd 2016. Fans got a preview of what the album would sound like when FJ released the first single "Moonlight Showdown" early in March of 2016. Which was more of a drinking song and a fan favorite. With his raspy southern fried voice and white trash ways many knew FJ was destined for success.



"Headed Back" was the second single off of "More Trash Than Hick" released on May 20, 2016. It was a little different, more about real life struggle and wanting more with a little bit of hope about the future. The "Moonlight Showdown" video was released a couple of days later on May 23, 2016 the rest is history in the making.


FJ's life hasn't always been biscuits and gravy. He spent most of his youth moving around from town to town to low-income trailer parks with his mother who did the best she could do to raise FJ by herself. We can only imagine how many close to heart attacks he could have given her!


FJ was a troubled youth with many encounters with the police which eventually landed his first arrest when he was 17.


His mom bought him his first guitar when he was 7 and he taught himself to play. Although his father was absent in his life his mother told him stories of his father who played in a country band which peaked his interest in music.


In the early years he grew fond of the Hip Hop genre but didn't start flirting with rap until his late teens. He later took his county, rock and rap roots and mixed them together with his own style to become who we know today as FJ Outlaw. Fj was once asked why he stayed up so late his response was, "To be honest it's because my mind is constantly racing, thinking about where I want to go with this music. What started as a hobby for fun has now turned me into a motivated, hungry, passionate mother fucker that is ready to do whatever it takes to make it to the top."


On January 22, 2017 he released his first full album "More Trash Than Hick" with a feature from Big Smo. This was the follow up to "Shotguns N' Whiskey EP" that showed he was growing more confident of himself mastering his style and lyrical expression.


Later in 2018 he decided it was time for a change and parted ways with his original record label. Not long after that on October 26, 2018 "Life Of An Outlaw" dropped with features from Brabo Gator, Franxo Kash, BoonDock Kingz and Mike Bama.


2019 was a busy year for FJ. He dropped "Lyrical Narcan The Mixtape" on October 31, 2019 and then later dropped a throwback album called, "Phonetic Freshman."


On February 21, 2020 his much-anticipated album "Label Denounced" was released revolving around his split with Eleven86 Music.

On October 24, 2020 he signed with Makomusicgroup. On December 23, 2020 he dropped the single, "I Break Down" with Savannah Dexter, who is also on the same label.


On September 22nd of 2020 he released "Sail Away," a single off of his upcoming "More Trash Than Hick 2." Covid has done little to slow down FJ.



February 10, 2021, he released the banger single, "Trailer Talk." I don't know about y'all, but I can't wait for "More Trash Than Hick 2" to drop. What I've heard from his first 2 singles that he dropped with Makomusicgroup, this is going to be his best album yet.
