"My name is Fuji and I'm a rapper, singer, dancer and illustrator and I love making my own music videos and getting you to dance with me. I'm most known for my strong connection to animals and the metaphysical as well as advocating for the liberation of people and animals.
Music is medicine. You are the healer.
I produced my first music video, "Hikikomori" (2016) in collaboration with Fulfilms Productions in Sacramento, CA and the incredible team from Vicious Vanity FX, lead by Nichole Chilelli. I really enjoyed getting the team together, making the storyboards, costumes, casting and directing. I got my BFA for Illustration at CCA a couple of years prior to "Hikikomori" which helped a lot in production, specifically with organizing my artistic process, conceptual art and storyboarding. My passionate cosplay background always gets ignited when making the costumes as well which is so much fun.
My most recent music video is called "Renegade" (2020) which was filmed in Colorado. I worked closely with my DP Sam Grabowska in the mountains and my personal home in Denver. I was the director, wardrobe/make up artist and editor on this video. I introduced more of my dancing into this video and am inspired to do more. This track means so much to me, I loved brining the video to life.
I can't express how much I loved spending the last decade or so in Oakland. I have roots and family there and it was a very difficult choice to make to move. I have now been back in my hometown of Denver, Colorado for a few years and it's been a gift to be close to my friends and family. I get to work with animals along side my music, dance and illustration. The mountains and nature here are also one of my favorite aspects of Colorado, and Denver will always have a special place in my heart as my hometown. I now live on the third floor in an apartment with my three cats, Daikon, Apricot and Scottie who I love very much."
