So… your boy took a trip to the dirty south, Tuskegee University to be exact, and was welcomed with open arms…
Yeah, it was cool as hell! Tuskegee University is like the ivy league of HBCU’s (historically black colleges and universities), and was founded by Booker T. Washington, but I wont go too deep into the history of the school, you can Wiki that if you wanna know.
Anyway, lets get into this awesome story. Me and my homey Richard went down to see our good friend Drew, who is a senior at Tuskegee University and is on his grind! He assembled a diverse group of artists and producers, which include Jeremiah ‘Jay Keys’ Veals (artist/producer), Jesse ‘Billy Wyttz’ Watkins (artist), Dame D. (producer), and last but definitely not least Jimmie ‘DarkDred’ Williams (producer/music engineer); and compiled they are The FN Movement.
The FN Movement is focused mainly on Jay Keys as the poster boy artist, but don’t sleep on Billy Wyttz, he holds his own! Dame D. is from Detroit and produces beats that are BANANAS! And, if you want to hear an instant pop hit, check out some of DarkDred’s beats. I was able to be around the music and the hard work all weekend and really gained an appreciation for these young guys’ dreams.
They make good music, and it’s not your bang, bang gangster type of music that people think will sell. It’s genuine “this is how/what I live” music, and you can tell it’s real by its quality. The FN movement had their first show that Friday at Tuskegee’s Homecoming (11/6 – 11/9). They opened up for Yung L.A., F.L.Y, and Hurrican Chris (yeah, that down south music) and performed some of my favorite songs: We Be Rollin, Groupie Chick, D.O.S (Death of Swag). To be honest, though my REAL favorite song from Jay Keys has to be Same Ol’ Thing.

But, I digress. Ya’ll won’t be able to understand my love for the music until you actually listen to it. It’s tough to give new artists a chance because a lot of people don’t want to hear anything new. Well, my goal is to force the FN movement down all my readers’ throats (pause) until they love it. Ready? Go! LOL.
Check out the pictures from that weekend:
