Seattle Based Hip-Hop Artist Tells His Story in New Single “Thought You Knew”

SEATTLE, WA – The Pacific Northwest has been home to Freako Bandeedo, and he plans to make definite waves in the region. Originally from Texas, the artist spent a majority of his childhood being surrounded by music. His father played in a huge Mexican band, which mesmerized Freako. He was always some part of the mix, from going on tours alongside his father to dabbling into playing trumpet. This introduction into the industry paved the road to success ahead of Freako Bandeedo.

After moving to Atlanta, he found himself gravitating toward the city’s style of hip-hop music. He began listening to T.I. and 50 Cent, which played a big role in his transition into rap music. “Once I moved to the Pacific Northwest, I started making beats with my friends from school. The cool thing about coming from a background in Hispanic music is that once I learned how to make music my own, any other style wasn’t hard to pick up. The only thing that differentiates is the language,” said the artist. In the midst of figuring out his footing, he never let any hate or negativity get in the way of pursuing his true dreams.

Freako Bandeedo’s Soundcloud page consists of a full roster of his mixtape songs. He’s excited to soon release his first official professional song called “Thought You Knew”, which tells the story of him rising above certain people who initially doubted him. “It all started out as people not believing in me. I’ve been sticking to a story of who I am, where I am going and how I’m gonna get there. The song is very hype,” said Freako. All of his songs illicit the same positive reaction from his fans no matter what the style is.

Fans will want to look out for the upcoming release of “Thought You Knew”, as well as the music video. As Freako is always working toward his goals, he’s already working on his next project. He knows the quality of work that goes into making it big, and he’s not afraid to put those hours in. “If you have a dream, no matter what it is, if it makes you happy, then you should pursue it. Let the hate come, be strong with it, and don’t let it get to you. You want it, you will get it.”
