When it comes down to the popularity of the South, there are people and camps that made history to make it a force to be reckoned with. But for those empire to be strong, the foundation had to be strong. And that foundation meant strong artists that could compete with anybody at any time. For No Limit records, Fiend was one of the frontliners to any competitor coming for the label #1 spot.Then came the time for the lyrical assassin to make his own lane and build his own brand. Projects after projects, ghostwritting for successful artists and having a distinctive voice that nobody has, Fiend has followers and fans from all over the world.Now with a new album to offer the world, “1st Rolex”, we made sure we got in touch with Fiend to let the people know that this album is fire and why you HAVE to get it.1- 1st Rolex: what is the idea behind that title?The concept behind 1st Rolex is, if you work hard for what you want or you can possess the motivation to be the person you want to be or obtain the lifestyle you desire and then invest what those hours got you into something that exemplifies your drive you get 1st Rolex. How bad do you want it? Everyone knows the value of a Rolex and my 1st one was reward from getting up and making it happen.
2- With this project, it seems like it is more “Mr Whomp Whomp” than “Sweet Jones”, more agressive.

At the end of the day you got to let your soul speak.
