When people think of Mississippi music a lot of names come to mind. Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters, David Banner, Elvis Presley, Big K.R.I.T., Rae Sremmurd, Sam Cooke, B.B. King, Faith Hill, and Nate Dogg all including many more have their roots in the Magnolia State and if most did a little research they would see that Mississippi is the birth place of American music. It was here were the blues (the first American genre ) was created and recorded. Robert Johnson’s “Kind Hearted Woman Blues” was the genesis of everything that would come after. From country to hip hop it all started in the Sip and today another artist is emerging from the motherland of music to change the game once more. His name is Fly Rich Double.
Fly Rich Double’s extraordinary cadence and catchy hooks has garnered him major success on YouTube. Since his late 2018 viral parody “Yup (On My Tractor)” FRD has been making himself a household name. But it’s his new song “FireFly” that’s stirring up the waters and by the masses projected to be a breakthrough record. Mixing the country and trap sound together FRD like Robert Johnson is becoming a pioneer and changing the game once more.
The rhythmic beat and the soothing guitar playing in the background of the hit single “Firefly” is almost undeniable. Only time will tell if the world will catch on to the Mississippi native and his peculiar style of trountry(trap & country). One thing is for certain. If Fly Rich Double keeps dropping classics like “FireFly” it won’t be long before he’ll be known as the undisputed number 1 “Trap Cowboy”.
