Biography

Born Frank Granados, Frankie G Da Mex was raised in the inner city streets of Denver Harbor, Houston Texas. A neighborhood stricken by poverty, filled with gangs, and overrun by money and drugs. A place where much isn’t left for a child's future, but ask Frankie G and he’ll tell you otherwise. “I saw the worse and I wanted better. It was a chance to have something when you come from nothing. Any farther I could pass from where I was, is a success.” Single children raised by a single mother, Frankie G quickly fell into a downward spiral and into the street life. “I was a smart kid, I just followed the wrong path, hung with the wrong people. I was kicked around from school to school for stupid things, acting out basically". But after attending a new school Frankie G found what would be his destiny, his calling, hip hop music. “I used to walk by the lunch table as the black dudes were beating on them making beats, I’d run up in and start flowing (freestylin). They didn’t know my name so they would call me 'Da Mex.’ Here comes Da Mex. One day I just put it all together, Frankie G Da Mex”.

Soon after Frankie G Da Mex starting making his own mixtapes under his independent label called I-10 Entertainment. “I was selling cd’s in high school, local music stores and getting recognized. My mom had to drive me to shops just so I could pick up the money cause I didn’t even have a license to drive [laughing]. With time, Frankie G's lyrics became stronger, sharper and started gaining recognition in the local hip hop circuit. He continued to make recordings, mixtapes, and performing gaining a local and state fan base. In 2004, he was approached by Artist Manager Humpty Hump, the man who helped Lil Flip become a Platinum selling artist. He joined with Sucka Free Records as a joint venture, but the album was never completed because the lack of funding. Not to be stopped, Frankie G continued recording, performing and perfecting his craft. In 2008, he added acting to his resume, co-starring in the indie film "Through The Valley" with Danny Trejo, (HEAT, American Me, Machete... ) He also had his track "This How We Party" featured in the movie and soundtrack. "I liked the movie gig; it was fun but hard work. I can see myself doing more."

Frankie G is currently working on his debut album appropriately entitled, " Da Album." It is set to release this summer under his record label I-10 Ent. He's also looking forward in signing a major record deal. "I wanna a major deal. Not because of the money or fame, because I want people to hear my music. I major deal can get my music and message to the world, and that's what I need."
