Throwback Thursday: Frayser Boy's "Me Being Me"


An Academy Award winner and Bay Area representative, Frayser Boy brought a refreshing sound to the Hypnotize Minds collective.

Along with Lil Wyte, he introduced people to the lifestyles of grinders in Memphis' Frayser community. Prior to Wyte and Frayser Boy's arrival, artists who rhymed about the city’s Whitehaven, South and North Memphis areas filled Hypnotize Minds' roster.

Frayser Boy’s sophomore album, Me Being Me, dropped in 2005. Although I thought his debut, Gone On That Bay, was better overall, the follow-up was still pretty solid.

The project’s title track/intro “Me Being Me” is one of the album's standouts. Frayser Boy's gritty lyrics mix perfectly with DJ Paul and Juicy J's signature production, catchy whistling sounds, and turntable scratches.
