Growing up on the streets of West Philadelphia, Michael Douglas was introduced to hip hop at an early age. Being raised by two young parents who loved Chubb Rock and The Wu-Tang Clan, he was no stranger to the rap life. Imitating the styles he heard on the radio, kids would surround Douglas’ table during lunch to hear his latest rhymes. After moving to New Jersey at the age of 14, he began to call himself “Young Flamez” which he later changed to “F Cannon” because other rappers had similar names. Soon teaming up with childhood friend “Tek” and starting the “The Thorobredz”, they began rapping and putting out mixtapes under his father who had become a well respected DJ in the neighborhood.
After releasing his solo mixtape “Take Notes” in 2009, F Cannon decided to link up with Platinum Heat Productions to help take him to the next level. Being a big fan of the ‘80s genre, everything from Hip Hop to Classic Rock, F Cannon is a very open- minded person when it comes to making music and lets every type influence his writing. He gets his hustle and motivation from Rap artists such as Jay-Z, Jadakiss and Fabolous.
For the 2010 year, F Cannon plans to tell his story of growing up on both sides of the fence; in poverty and in the upper class. F Cannon hopes to open people’s eyes and introduce them to his world.
