Freddie Foxxx AKA Bumpy Knuckles
Freddie Foxxx AKA Bumpy Knuckles
Bumpy Knuckles, is a New York M.C. and producer whose contributions to the culture of Hip Hop has surpassed the standards of what one would call a legendary artist. His longevity in a music genre that tries so hard to put a time limit on it’s artists is proof that creativity, talent and hard work does indeed pay off.

Initially hailing from Long Island New York as Freddie Foxxx, Bumpy Knuckles quickly established himself as a M.C. who commanded listening to. His assertive personality is evidenced in his lyrics and he says exactly what he feels. Beginning his rap career as a member of the group, Supreme Force, Bumpy recorded his first singles on Nia Records/Atlantic Records. “Come Out Fresh” and “Cold Handlin’ Things” Not long after, Bumpy landed a deal with MCA Records and released his solo album “Freddie Foxxx Is Here” in 1989.

After the release of “Freddie Foxxx Is Here” Bumpy Knuckles quickly became a staple in the Hip Hop community. Upon leaving MCA Records, Bumpy joined Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit and released his second album “Crazy Like A Foxxx.” In the next few years following, he received notoriety for his cameos on songs by Boogie Down Productions, Naughty By Nature, M.O.P., Missin Linx OC and Gang Starr’s hit “The Militia.” It was clear that Bumpy’s tenacious delivery of his clever lyrics were a welcomed addition to many of his peers’ projects. In addition, not only was Bumpy able to instill his passion for writing what he felt in his own verses, Bumpy also proved versatility in his writing abilities when he penned five songs for female rap duo Salt-N-Pepa. Bumpy Knuckles wrote “Big Shots,” “Groove Me,” “Somebody’s Getting On My Nerves,” “None Of Your Business” and the hit single “Whatta Man” on their album “Very Necessary.”

After his dealings with record labels left him feeling somewhat disconcerted, he began his career as an independent artist. Bumpy Knuckles was at the forefront of what we now call underground Hip Hop. Upon distancing himself from traditional record labels, Bumpy took some time away from the limelight and associated with the likes of Lord Finesse and Showbiz. While on this hiatus, Bumpy took notes from the D.I.T.C crew and sharpened his own production skills. Then in 2000, he released his third album “Industry Shakedown,” which was the biggest selling independent album of the year. The album’s title song uninhibitedly expressed Bumpy’s frustration with the business side of the music industry. This was the first Hip Hop song of this kind and it became the blueprint of other artists’ backlash to the industry when they felt wronged. The album included contributions from super producers Pete Rock and DJ Premier. Following “Industry Shakedown” Bumpy released “Konexion” in 2003 which included tracks produced by DJ Premier and DJ Clark Kent.

In 2006, Bumpy performed and produced on various tracks of the WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2006 video game. He also appeared on WWE John Cena’s album “You Can’t See Me” Flow Easy, Keep Frontin—performed and produced “Bad Bad Man” (2005). Bumpy Knuckles subsequently released a series of independent albums including “OG Volumes” and “Music From the Man.”

To date, Bumpy Knuckles has steadily provided that boom bap sound that true Hip Hop lovers search for and he shows no signs of discontinuing this plight. Bumpy past projects include collaborations with Public Enemy, O.C., Statik Selectah, DJ Wayneski and of course the last collaboration album with DJ Premier “Koloxxxion.”
