Your New Project is out tell us more about it.
- Well it isn’t out just yet it drops next Sunday January 6 but it’s a very heavy and personal piece that I needed to get off my chest. Being a recent college grad I really didn’t know where I wanted to go in life and what I wanted to do. I went through a lot this year lost family friends been done over by women I called myself loving and homies I called brothers. It just seemed like I was stuck in a Blues majority of 2018 and the only way I can find an escape was through music. So one day I sat down and wrote this project and I decided after that day no matter what I’m going to make it. Black Coupe Blues is a journey through my mind from my early doubts and weakness to my greatest triumphs and strengths. I peel every layer of me back so that by the end of the project the listener doesn’t just know Frank Vibes but also Franklin Simpkins.
What artist are you feeling right now.
Right now the artist I’m really feeling are JID, Saba, Reason, Noname, Jean Deaux, Supa Bwe, IDK, Smino, Mick Jenkins and many more but those are the ones that are getting primary rotation. I also see them as the biggest competition JID and Reason are two new faces that appeared on the scene and been killing it every minute I need to get on a track with these guys just to let them know yeah you dope but trust me my guy you ain’t safe I’m on your heels. Saba, Noname and the rest are what I call city pride being a kid from Chicago I’m really in-tune with our music scene and these guys kill it all the time I have to best them if I want to be the king in my neck of the woods.

My top 5 rappers of all time is going to throw a lot of people off seeing how I’m only 22 but here it goes. 1: Tupac 2: Biggie 3: Big L 4: Rakim 5: DMX
