Hailing from Roselle, New Jersey. Dominating Social media, Scotty Too Fly, was introduced to the music industry by his brother and popular fashion stylist, Dupie Fresh. That’s when Scotty got his start working in the fashion industry in 2013. A year later he was introduced to a well-known New Jersey DJ by the name of Drewski and the two have been making noise since. Collaborating on anything from songs to mixtapes and even hosting events. Scotty began his career as a producer, coordinator, and socialite within the underground and mainstream music scene. This is where he earned his alias Scotty Too Fly. Once receiving his first few clients Scotty realized that he wanted to be a full-time entrepreneur. So then he could achieve his new career goal of being a music executive. He then learned how to approach artists in a way that they felt comfortable. Those business relationships lead him to gain access to mainstream events in the entertainment industry.

Respectfully, over the years Scotty has done behind the scenes media with some of the biggest names in the industry such as; Celebrity Producer Lester London, Chad B, Cruch Calhoun, Dougie F, DJ Spinking, Pineapple Citi, Tsu Surf, Coi Leray, HipHopMike, Fatboy SSE, Dex Lauper Son of Cindy Lauper, Albee Al, Bennie Bates, Justin Love DJ Wallah, 2 Milly, The Hoodies, Phresher Dygzz, and HOOD Celebrity, Malibu Mitch, Nipsey Hussle, and J Stone Of All Money IN Record Label, just to name a few. Aside from dominating the music industry, Scotty is also an advisor for a concert series entitled, Drewski & Friends.

Monday nights Scotty works with THENEWMVMT team as a co-host where he alongside @sodrewski, @candysolidcircle, and @bruheff where music live reviews are held via Youtube weekly. The reviews shine a light on the local talent in the community as well as across the country. Scotty is the social media manager for all of The MVMT’s social media accounts.

A jack of all trades, Scotty doubles as a brand representative for Kazi Magazine and Roselle USA. Scotty is someone all up and coming, in recent events he has appeared in multiple music videos including Chad B. “Miss My Dawgs” starring Birdman of Cash Money Records, Fatboy, JoJo Capone, and Squeez - Ceo of Record label Nokkutt Ent. which has been featured on BET JAMS. As well as J. Stone’s “The

Also being associated with Cinematic Music Group. Where he is affiliated with Johny Shipes through artist Cruch Calhoun. Saint Harraway through his good friend Lester London. He’s also affiliated with Universal Music Group/ Def Jam where he is connected with Qualhata Williams, who does marketing and promotions.

Scotty Too Fly has said that his daily motivation is God, Family, Girlfriend. He wants his followers to be influenced by his work ethic hoping to inspire and motivate them to thrive. His words of advice to those coming up in the industry or those who are trying to rebrand their company to Scotty has applied everything he has learned thus far and navigated his way through the industry. With his work and having been Co-signed by many heavy hitters in the music world, it’s safe to say Scotty is just getting started.

Can you tell us a bit about your ‘backstory’ and how you got started?

It all started when I was on my way to class this was at the beginning of 2013, I was in College. My brother ( Dupie Fresh ) his business partner ( Mikey Strong ) he saw me on my way to school (At this time StrongHold was building a second location in Roselle Park, NJ ) He had asked me “Hey, what kind of shirt is that? Do you want to come work with me?” (The shirt I was wearing was a new OBEY shirt) I was working two jobs (Nike & Puma) I replied “Of course.” I was going back and forth in my head thinking to myself “Should I leave my mall jobs? Or should I stay? Working my two jobs” I was young so I knew about retail and about the fashion industry but he offered me a job I reached back out to my brother and he said he would make me an intern to see my work ethic and skills.
