Fetty Luciano

Fetty Luciano

Fetty Luciano is a youngster that grew up in Brooklyn, New York who started rapping during a prison term and within a year of his release debuted on Def Jam with Story to Tell, a hard-edged mixtape featuring an appearance from fellow GS9 crew member Bobby Shmurda.

Early Life

Fetty Luciano grew up in Brooklyn's East Flatbush neighborhood with a view from the streets. He was known for his basketball talent, as was his older brother Chad, aka Rowdy Rebel. He got his rap name from combining his childhood nickname (“Fetty”) and his love for Italian mob movies (“Luciano”).[6]

In 2014, when he was still in high school, he and his brother, along with recent Epic Records signee Bobby Shmurda and fellow members of GS9, were arrested on various charges and later sentenced to prison terms.

Luciano was incarcerated in December 2017 and released finally in 2018.

He was the first person to be released from prison after serving three years.

The other GS9 members are most likely to be released before the end of 2020.[1]

Career

In 2017, during his incarceration, the 23-year-old born Remy Marshall decided to leave behind his dreams of playing basketball to become a rapper.

Just 24 hours after he got out of jail, Fetty went straight to the studio to record songs.

As the first member out from GS9, he is determined to carry the torch for the crew and reinvigorate the excitement for The 9’s return.

He has made cameos in videos like French Montana’s “Hot Nigga” (Remix) and “Don’t Panic,” as well as Chinx’s “Bodies” and Rowdy’s “Computers.” He’s gotten credible co-signs from Casanova and Zoey Dollaz. Teka$hi69 (6ix9ine) let him have a cameo in his “Keke” video featuring Fetty Wap and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. Buzzing Brooklyn rapper Jay Critch even collaborated with him on “Get It & Flip It,” which has over 423,000 plays on SoundCloud.

“We started all this going crazy on beats,” Fetty says.

“I’m starting to bring that back.

Everybody love Bobby and Rowdy three years ago, and they was loving me too.

We gonna take the city by storm and bring that 9 flavor back.

In January 2018, he dropped his debut single “Shmoney Calling”. Over a sinister beat by Dondre Dennis and Dougie da God, Fetty shows his potential by delivering an anthem for all the hustlers getting to the shmoney. “Ugly,” another banger that matches the energy of earlier GS9 songs, finds Fetty name checking GS9 and detailing how things could get uglier than Shabba Ranks if you test him. He also swiftly landed a recording contract with Def Jam, and in August 2018 officially released his first singles: "On the Wall," on which he and the still-imprisoned Shmurda alternated verses, and "FASHO," featuring Gunna. Both tracks appeared on Story to Tell, a ten-track commercial mixtape issued that October.[4]

Personal Life

Luciano always gives credit to Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy as an Influences and loves listening to Jay Z and Mobb Deep as he draws inspiration from their songs.[4]

Social Media

Luciano has over 133k Instagram followers where he update them pictures and clips of daily activities and music. He joined Twitter community December 2017 and he currently has less than 1000 followers.[2][3]
