2Fly is the newest upcoming face of the rap game. Â From Houston, Texas, 2Fly moved to Dallas with his mother for better opportunities. Growing up he listened to a lot of Â Michael Jackson but hearing 50 Cent’s ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ inspired him to rap. Getting started,Â 2Fly was apart of a group that didn’t work out, but yet he’s the only one still standing. To be able to reach his full potential, the solo route was for the best. At a performance for his high school talent show as a junior, 2Fly knew this was what he was born to do. He’s has performed all over the city and opened up for artists like Lil’ Bibby and Lil’ Herb. Working on three projects at once, he says ‘Level Up’ is the first project for audiences. I was able to sit in on a studio session with him to get all the tea on his up and coming career.
