Originally born in the small town of Burlington, NC, the artist knows today as Loose Bills relocated to Jacksonville, FL in 1990 and hasn’t looked back since.
Although he never envisioned himself being a rapper as a kid, music has always had a heavy influence on him. Riding with his mother, who played nothing but the old school radio station V101.5, he quickly grew to like artists such as The Isley Brothers, Prince, and New Edition to name a few.
In 2006, Loose Bills decided to jump in the rap game and get his feet wet. He formed a group called The Bfd Clique with two of his high school friends. The group released to popular mix-tapes called The City Zoo 1 and 2, which earned them a heavy buzz and got them runner up at The Source Unsigned Hype Convention 2008 in Dallas, TX. The group achieved some success before each member ended up splitting to pursue their own solo careers.
With plans to make bigger, better, and smarter moves, Loose eventually took the time out to buy equipment and set up his own studio to record music freely. He started performing his single "Undecided" at local open mic venues. After a few times performing the song, he had generated a buzz, and people started requesting a full mix-tape. He took that motivation and go to work on his first solo mix-tape, "The Memoirs of Franklin Benjamin’s," which was scheduled and released in 2011. Loose Bills' is more prepared than ever to release his new solo mix-tape and 2 lead singles “I’m Beamin” and “Purple Flowers” this summer and hit the ground running.
