Coming up with a catchy song that fans will like is one thing, but creating one that speaks a powerful message of survival and finding meaning in life after a series of rough years is another. J’Kein O’Neal, better known as Tulooo Fresh in the hip-hop scene, is making waves after releasing his latest single “Millionaire Music” and music fans around the country are eager to hear more.
Tulooo fresh is best known for his straightforward lyrics that depict the many horrors and victories of his life alike. The rising artist, however, is finding more of his real purpose as he continues to pour out his emotions and his life into his music. Even without having met him personally, one can get to know him by simply listening to his song with an open heart.
“Every time I touch the mic, I am aiming to present quality music, but at the same time, I really relive moments and give y’all J’Kein through Tulooo. I mean exactly how I said it. Tulooo raps J’Kein’s story. The long nights gave birth to the deep heartfelt flow, and the good days produced the rhythmic, melodic vocal,” the artist shares.
Growing up with an absentee father in a dysfunctional home took its toll on Tulooo, and for a season, he lived with no direction and ambition. The only constant thing in his life of uncertainty was his deep love for rapping. And so he turned to rap as a teenager as a form of self-expression, a way to tell his story, and a way to inspire others to realize that they are not the only ones going through difficult times in life. He, too, had to fend for himself at a young age because he had no reliable moral and emotional support from his family. At the age of 17, Tulooo had his first child, followed by a second one when he turned 21.
“My music makes me feel like I’m the rebirth of hip-hop because of the way that I approach and present the craft. I tell you stories, spill out my vulnerabilities, and let you in on both my struggles and my success. You get the bad and the good from me,” Tulooo confesses.
Thanks to the inspiration he got from listening to the music of Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, D-Block, G-Unit, and Max B, Tulooo Fresh is finally on his way to making something out of his life. He is now more confident that his songwriter abilities have matured over time and that the music industry in general is seeing him from a perspective of respect and seriousness.
Despite the many challenges and detours that Tulooo Fresh encountered in his life, he is finally finding his center through his music and is showing his fans and followers that they, too, can have a better life. Tulooo is the living example of the popular adage that the past does not define a person. He may have had a rocky beginning, but it is clear that it’s going to be smooth sailing for the rising hip-hop star as he focuses on making quality music that will inspire many.
