We had the good fortune of connecting with Cheeko Fue and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cheeko, what do you attribute your success to?
Persistency , consistency , faith and hard work . Always out grind the competition look out side the box in between the lines and punctuality is a major key . It’s the mental pre preperation or the calm before the storm . I’m mentally prepaired then I bring my thoughts to living works

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Euniquely original , able to flip a switch without a glitch , full of energy and Puerto Rican . I was convicted of trafficking cocaine in 2014 due to an informant on my case . I had been running the streets for years riding around with at least a life sentence on my lap or more everyday . Hustling playin the day and night . When I was framed guilty I decided to never look back and when I became free I would “STOP SELLING DOPE & START SELLING HOPE” I did just that ! I kept my faith up , worked hard and transformed that negative energy into a positive outcome

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
It’s funny you ask this question . I just held a movie theatre premiere at an upscale cinema in Atlanta we’re I launched my newest music video “MOTION” we had a live bad and lit the whole set on FIRE , litterally. He missed his flight on that Saturday and we were invited guest to the 21savage Freaknik 21 birthday celebration . That’s what we do and it happened . The only artist that partook in the A3C events that had the “MOTION” song playin at that party . HUGE!!!!
