Young Lawless is definitely keeping audiences on their toes this year. With the release of his newest track “Coochie Hoochie” ft. Yn Jay, Lawless (aka FatBoyLaw) is not letting up any time soon and keeps it coming hit-after-hit. The upbeat anthem is an impressive effort from the independent, Compton-based artist, and shows how he is capable of switching things up when needed.
The new track “Coochie Hoochie” follows the release of his previously released album titled This Is Not A Real Album. Through that project and others that he has under his belt, it’s clear to see how FatBoyLaw is making a name for himself and setting himself apart from the rest. His witty storytelling technique is unmatched and absolutely distinguishes him from all other West Coast artists.
When asked about when he decided to ultimately pursue a career in music, Lawless said that “Knowing that I have real talent made me ultimately decide to do music. It would be a waste of a gift if I didn’t do music. It’s something that makes me feel good and I believe I have a story to tell. Hopefully I can reach people that’s in a dark place and help bring them out of it into some light.”
As far as what’s next for the rapper, he says that he’s working on a new EP that fans can be on the lookout for called Psychoactive. Some notable features will appear on this project, including Sukihana, Steven G, Compton Menace, and Kevin McCall.
“My goal is to go platinum while being an independent artist,” Young Lawless says of his goals. “I’m not signed to a major label. I don’t have any management or an agency so that’s a big goal for me. Music and the fashion culture coincide together so I would also like to partner up with a few fashion brands as a creative director in the future. I got a few ideas and I’m all about innovation.”
Lawless is the example of an artist who creates his own lane in the music industry.
