J’Kein O’Neal is a male hip-hop artist straight out of Washington. Growing up in the eastern parts of North Carolina, J’Kein commonly goes by his rap name Tulooo Fresh. He pictures his music as a bumpy ride in a luxury car, stringing from his life’s unpredictability, which is a direct reflection of his music.
Tulooo has been rapping since he was a teenager with the sole agenda of telling his story. His passion draws heavily from his greatest influences, such as Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, G-Unit, D-Block, and Max B, big names that have shaped Tulooo’s ear for hip-hop and helped cultivate his love for his craft.
Other artists may have helped Tulooo pick up a pen and write songs; however, his main motivation as an artist has always been life. Life in its purest form drives Tulooo’s artistic pursuits. As a father to three young kings, he has always set his sights toward the future. He always tries to allow everything to fuel him in any way positively. He firmly believes that people need to find the positivity that dwells around us in these trying times.
Tulooo’s music reveals different sides of the truth — general truths that are evident in our modern society, or truths that he simply believes in. He artistically delivers these truths through intellectual wordplay in his striking lyricism blended with his elegant deliveries. It’s no surprise why he describes it as a bumpy ride in a luxury car. His music is something else. It’s unique, relatable, and painfully honest. Tulooo admits that his music might not always be pretty, but it’s always going to be something special.
He aspires to greatly motivate the youth and guide them toward discovering what is right. As someone who grew up without a father figure and a role model, Tulooo strongly feels that it is his duty to show children all over the world that they can go against the odds and triumph. He wants children to believe that they can be who they aspire to be and who they work hard to become.
Every time he touches the mic, he aims to present quality music to his audience and relive all the moments of J’Kein’s life through Tulooo. There’s a line straight out of his track ‘Millionaire Music’ that truly embodies Tulooo’s art. The line goes “This is not music; this is my life,” symbolizing the long nights that gave birth to the deep heartfelt flows of his music, and the good days that produced the rhythmic, melodic vocals. Tulooo’s listeners are true witnesses to the spectacle of J’Kein’s life.
Tulooo Fresh is here to break barriers and show the world the whole truth behind J’Kein’s life. He continues to inspire others to carve their path against adversity through his music and his personality. Tulooo himself has inspired a worldwide movement, an extension of his music with ties much deeper than rap or hip-hop, a movement called the Tulooo Gang.
Tulooo’s influence runs deep, as he continues to elevate his craft, more and more people are flocking toward the sheer honesty of his music and his captivating personality.
