The name Folarin Falana has been crossing my ears for some weeks now, also known as Falzthebahdguy, he featured on Lynxxx’s album(This is Lynxxx) on the track Playa ft General Pype which made him more famous. So, I thought it wise to chat with him and find out what the whole hype was about.
Bubba: Yo how are you?
FalzTheBahdGuyT: I’m doing pretty good thanks. You?
Bubba: I’m great thanks. How was your day though?
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Was kinda lonng but okay and Urs?
Bubba: School blah blah
Bubba: Anyways, peeps kinda insisted that I had to interview you so I decided to see what all the buzz was about. Falzthebadguy seems to be everywhere these days, who is this person?
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Lol, FalztheBahdguy is just an entertainer meyn. I think that’s the best way to describe me
Bubba: Yh everyone is an entertainer these days..but there has to be something that is distinct about u sha
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Lol true talk. I think the fact that the sorta music I make is not jus the usual stuff u hear. My style involves quite a bit o’ humour and I think people like that about me.
Bubba: I spoke to Rilwan a while ago, he says his music is ‘buttermint music’. And yours wud be?
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Lol, I ll say mine is New-school rap
FalzTheBahdGuyT: #Wuzzup Music
Bubba: I like #wuzzup music, correct. The first time I heard about Falz was on Lynxxx’s album and the lines you dropped really cracked me up.
Bubba: Was that your first attempt @ music??
FalzTheBahdGuyT: The Lynxxx song?
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Oh no, it was recorded a long time ago. I had already done a whole mixtape before then.
Bubba: You have a mixtape? :O
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Lol, oh yes indeed I do

FalzTheBahdGuyT: Deez not niize, so u haven’t even heard my mixtape?
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Its called Shakara
Bubba: I’m sorry but I haven’t. I told you now that the 1st time I heard of you was on Lynxxx’s album with tha line ‘and ure still shewing shewing gum’
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Don’t worry, I hook you up
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Lool, that line was originally from my song Shakara which was on the mixtape.
Bubba: Oh ok I see
Bubba: So do you see yourself as a better entertainer than D’banj? 😐
FalzTheBahdGuy: Lol see quechon
FalzTheBahdGuyT: Well I don’t make the same sorta music as him so I don’t think I can compare myself to him
