Favorite Quotes From Farruko

“In some ways, the house arrest was a blessing. Before it happened, I never spent time at home, I was always out on the streets, always running around. I didn’t like feeling closed in.

This has given me the opportunity to spend time with my children and my family. It has also kept me away from certain influences that had me headed in the wrong direction.

It’s given me time to reflect and to think about how I’m going to go forward and give the best of myself.”

Farruko Success Tips

  1. “I want to be the type of artist that speaks to people, that tells a story that people want to hear. You look at artists like Ricky Martin or Marc Anthony.
  2. They can fill a stadium even if they don’t have a hit song because people come for the story they tell and the whole experience that they deliver.
  3. That’s the kind of artist I want to be. I don’t want people to come to my concerts just to hear my hit songs. I want them to come because my show delivers a history, a message, and a story.”
