How did the Island Boy rappers claim popularity?
In October, TikTok user @kodiyakredd shared a video with his brother @flyysouljah, where the two were seen singing in the pool. The two were heard singing the catchy song:
“Because I’m an island boy, and I’ve tried to do it / Oh, I’m an island boy / Ayy, I’m just an island boy, I’m just an island boy.”
The video clip was not well received by its audience. It has since been shared across several platforms, including Twitter and Instagram. As the video continued with surplus views, comments such as “Florida is not a real place” appeared online.
Although the original video has been shared over the internet, their Island Boy song has been deleted from @kodiyakredd’s channel as they received negative feedback. A user wrote:
“This is fun, it can not be real.”
As they got traction online through their “Island Boy” song, they started being called “Island Boys”. Their real names are Frank (Kodiyakredd) and Alex (Flyysoulja) Venegas.
In response to their latest appearance, Twitter users taunted the Island Boys by saying:
The brothers were born on July 16, 2001. A single mother raised them after their father passed away. As the boys got older, they reportedly had a lot of problems with the law. They were arrested for stealing cars and for burglary. During a No Jumper podcast interview, Alex had said:
“We were out of control.”
