FlyRich Double Explains Love For Hip Hop With A Country Flare By Breaking Down ‘Yup (On My Tractor)’ Single
FlyRich Double has been delivering the country vibes in his music since 2018 when his signature “Yup (On My Tractor)” single popped and went viral to the tune of 16 million views on YouTube.
In his latest interview on the Diverse Mentality Podcast the Mississippi-bred rapper says at first, his push into the subgenre was purely motivated by the content he was creating.
“And I was doing these little skits like acting like a country person and I was reacting to it I was getting a lot of views,” FlyRich Double said. “I’m like what if I can put this in the sun and see what it do so I did that and I went to sleep woke up it was like like look at all these views like what in the world that’s crazy.”
As time progressed, the country rap sub-genre began to become popular, which is something that FLyRich Double says he loves and saw coming ahead of time.
“When he first dropped ‘Old Town Road’ I was trying to remix it before it blew up because I knew it was coming,” he said. “I knew it, I love the honestly I like country Hip Hop man even the guitars too. Just it’s something like Post Malone did what’s that record ‘Go flex’ I think there’s a guitar behind it. I just love that Nelly type of style I like that style man. I don’t know yeah it’s smooth man it’s something different too man.”
