California-based producer Papi Loco was thirteen when he started making music in GarageBand on his iPod touch. His journey from there involved many ups and downs. It was the older kids in his high school football team that introduced him to FL Studio and performed on his early material. From there he moved to LA to study at an audio engineering school, but his turbulent time there almost destroyed his dreams as an artist.
The producer moved back home, but didn’t give up, he began work on what became his hip-hop-inspired LP, Push, released earlier this year. It was his DJ friend La Mahj that gave him the inspiration to finally produce tracks for fun again. These two albums will forever be a staple of when Papi Loco figured out how to master his own work. Since then he has decided to consistently focus on both hip hop and house music.
“G i Fruit” is a lighthearted house-laden dance cut. The song sits as the fifth track on Papi Loco’s second full-length album, Casa De Tempo, which was made alongside house producer La Mahj and features various other artists. “G i Fruit” embodies the playful online troll and his obsessive taste for fruit: “Plums, Berries, Melons, Repeat Fruit all I eat, Every day of the week.” This vibrant and energetic video shows us that there’s no end to where and how you can enjoy the fruit. Watch Papi Loco barbeque bananas, make smoothies, and dance around outside in this fun video.
Papi Loco has also started his own label, Last Half Records. The producer aims to partner with another label so that he can distribute his music to the world whilst maintaining creative freedom. Watch the official music video for “G i Fruit” now.
