The Origin Story
Flyysoulja was born on July 16, 2001, along with his fraternal twin brother Franky Venegas (Kodiyakredd), in South Florida. The rapper is of Cuban descent. The Venegas twins lost their father in 2005, leaving their mother to raise them alone.
As young boys, Alex and his brother Franky got involved in petty crimes such as burglary, car theft, and drug possession. At the age of 18, they were both kicked out of their home by their mother due to their frequent arrests.
While in jail as a teenager, Alex was inspired to pursue a career in rap. In 2021, he and his brother Franky Venegas gained fame when their song “I’m an Island Boy” went viral on TikTok. The song became a meme that circulated widely on social media.
Their unique appearance with vertical dreadlocks, diamond-encrusted teeth, and many tattoos on their face and body drew public attention. The Island Boys had their first performance at a club in Miami in November 2021, singing their hit song “I’m an Island Boy,” a cappella.
Flyysoulja is an independent artist, and he promotes his music on his social media accounts. He has over 1.9 million followers on Instagram and has released several solo songs in 2020, 2021, and 2022, including “Red Lyfe,” “Steppa,” “Pain Song,” “Jet,” “Ptsd,” and “What you doing.” His first EP is titled “Stardom” and contains five original songs.
Island Boys released two albums, TRENDSETTERS and 17. TikTok is another good stream of revenue for Venegas.
