The voice behind controversial AI rapper FN Meka has spoken out on the situation for the first time.
Atlanta based rapper Kyle The Hooligan revealed that he was the voice behind the robot rapper that caught the attention of social media users this week after it was announced that it had singed a major label deal with Capitol Records. His reaction comes less than 24 hours after it was announced by Capitol that it was cutting ties with FN Meka.
Kyle claims that Capitol came to him with the project and he decided to do it thinking he can make some extra money on the side while he pursues his main career. But the label ghosted him and never turned in the money.
“They came to me with this AI shit and was like would I want to be the voice of it, and I thought it was going to be some collaboration,” Kyle said. “They promised me equity in the company, percentages, all this stuff, so I’m thinking, ‘OK, this about to be some collab, something different for me, so I can do my music and do some A.I. stuff with this FN Meka character.”
