Hello! First, why don’t you introduce yourselves & tell us what you do!
Hi!! We are Nick Jordan and Hundo and we are friends of the friendless. We recently crash landed into the depths of the hood of LA after a quick multi dimensional joy ride through space and time. We’re now on a mission to find all of the like minded people of Earth to combine forces with and become unstoppable.
What’s your favorite song of yours currently?!
Nick: Mine is definitely “Congratulations” because my verses are hard af and it’s fun af live.
Hundo: Mine has to be “Ain’t it funny” because of the inspiration behind the song. To make a long story short, let’s just say someone was being fake behind my back and smiling to my face.
How would you describe your personal clothing style?
Nick: Probably just fly as fuck.
Hundo: Shout out to NTRL RBLS
Who are your main musical influences?
Nick: Outkast, Blink 182 and Aretha Franklin
Hundo: a solid tie between Tupac and Andre 3000. I’m like both of them really…Andre is weird in the best way. Pac was revolutionary and down for his cause.
How did you both get started doing music?
Nick: I started playing drums in my school band when I was 12, it was the first thing that ever started me doing it all. I’ve been in bands since I was 14 and haven’t known anything else.
Hundo: I grew up beating on doors and pots and pans and of course watching my mom beat box. It was natural to me from day 1.
What is one thing you want to accomplish as an artist?
FOTF: Take over the world and make the world a better place for us aliens.
Who inspires you to keep performing?
Nick: It’s just my favorite thing to do so I have to say myself. It’s what I like to do the most out of everything…ever. I don’t care if anyone else was still doing it, I would always perform no matter what, it inspires me.
Hundo: The look in my kids eyes. That’s it, it’s that simple. They think I’m a rockstar.
What is one interesting thing about yourself that not a lot of people know?!
Nick: I also love to paint and have so many paintings I’ve done already completed.
Hundo: I’m double jointed in my ring finger. It’s pretty interesting haha.
And lastly…. What is your favorite part about being an artist?!
Nick: Realistically, it’s inspiring other people to do anything whether it’s music or whatever they love to do.
Hundo: the perks!
SEE! I told you they were rad guys.
OH! Massive PERK!! (Just like Hundo was talking about!)
If you’re local to the LA area…they have a show coming up on December 16th!
