Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, DJ and music producer Fourd Nkay has made quite the name for himself since his transition to the New York music scene in 2008. As a producer, he has worked with many artists, including Sadat X of Brand Nubian, Oun-P, Masspike Miles (MMG/Inkkwell), Robbie Nova and many more.
In 2012, he produced 2 tracks from Oun-P’s mixtape F.A.C.T.S., which did exceptionally well streaming. As a result of this, his DJ career soared, allowing him to curate his sound rocking the tables in Lower East Side, K-Town and downtown Brooklyn (in clubs such as Bar 13, Novotel Rooftop, Ichi-Cellar and The Delancey as a Saturday resident). He’s also opened for/co-worked with celebrity DJs from Hot 97 and Power 105.
In 2016, he started his own entertainment group Straight Heat Entertainment. However, Straight Heat Ent. is not your average promoting group; the collective assists in booking other DJs for shows, connecting artists to opportunities all while curating Fourd’s own online monthly radio show called Straight Heat Radio.
2018 has been quite the year already for DJ Fourd Nkay; now, he releases his brand new single “Money Walk” with Brooklyn Hip-hop artist 2 Milly, who’s best known for “Milly Rock.”
Lucky for us, we were able to briefly interview 2 Milly regarding the single…check it out below.
RESPECT: In your song “Money Walk,” you say the phrase “Sturdy” or “Sturdy Gang.” What does that mean for those who may not understand the term?
Sturdy means well put together or to the best of your abilities…when I say “sturdy up” it means like get with the program…and being that I brought the word “sturdy” to life, I made it the name of the gang, Sturdy Gang.
RESPECT: Your song “Money Walk” produced by DJ Fourd Nkay is really lit. How did that song come about?
The song “Money Walk” came about rather simple. The beat is incredible and I was saying to myself the whole week, “money talk, BS walk.” I kinda switched it up to make it make sense and not really copy that phrase…but it’s basically saying “money talk, BS walk.” If u don’t got money, go and get it, mask on or off, the illegal way or the legal way.
RESPECT: You were on Hot 97 a few months ago, what was that experience like for you?
Being on Hot 97 is an overwhelming feeling, me being the creator of the Milly Rock had people doubting I could actually make music, so just for somebody to have that ear out for me and know I can create and give me a platform to show it was dope. Shoutout my guy Hip Hop Mike.
RESPECT: In addition to that, you have Drake’s “Nice For What” remix that’s been getting great reviews. Are you planning on releasing more remixes to songs or was this one time thing?
Many more freestyles to come, I don’t plan on letting up at all.
RESPECT: Any other upcoming projects we can expect from you soon?
Welcome 2 Millyville coming…the album and 2.M, a mixtape of the most common freestyles to be released this Summer. It’s bout to heat up.
