Outside Worlds Frankie X just released his exclusive mixtape, Heartbreak Summer. We asked him a few questions to learn some more about the tape.
•How long has the tape been in the works?
The tape has been in the works since November of 2019, when the first song and one of the lead singles “H.E.R.” was recorded.
•Who’s all featured on it?
This project features only one other artist, fellow Outside World member and DJ, Richie Guapo. However, this tape has 3 production placements from Outside World producer/recording artist Fetti Suo who also recently dropped a body of work titled Crybaby Suo.
•What’s your favorite song on the tape?
My favorite song on the tape is Lone Stone. I feel like that song describes best how I feel most of the time, and have built a personal connection to it. It’s the kind of song you listen to when you’re down and want to pick yourself back up.
•What was your motivation / inspiration for the tape?
My motivation/inspiration behind the tape was ultimately to assemble a body of work that I knew someone, somewhere, would find relatable. It really highlights the ups and downs of the experiences i’ve had in the dating world, and I know these are common things we all go through but sometimes don’t have the words to express. My hopes for this tape are that the music resonates and helps a broken or lonely heart begin to heal the way mine did while making this project.

The Outside World collective is back at it again! FettiSuo just dropped the track list to his upcoming debut mixtape “CryBabySuo” dropping on August 6th 2020 and we got the inside scoop on it. The 15 track tape consists of 12 songs and 3 skits, along with features by fellow OutsideWorld members Flex Winter , Frankie X , Billy Banks and Richie Guapo who also works with Macibision, another Tampa based collective. You can also expect to hear some features by YZM and upcoming talented singer Michaela Paladio , along with a few familiar voices that Suo said listeners will have to guess! Everything from the tapes production and engineering , to the cover art and promotion was done in house by the Outside World team. We asked Suo what his biggest influence for the project was and this is what he told us …
“My biggest influence for this project was not only going through life lessons and hardships, but also having fun and enjoying life. Music influence comes from the NY drill , G Funk classics and modern trap as well as a bit of classic hip hop. What inspired this tape was really the understanding that no matter how you put it or how you want to look at it im always going to be me and be myself. Whether its good, bad, happy, sad, high or low its all genuinely me. Alot of artists should try to be themselves more.”
Here is the exclusive track list along with Suo’s Instagram & Soundcloud. Make sure to be on the lookout August 6th for the drop!
