Fernando Villarreal was born and raised in Baldwin Park, California. At the tender young age of 9, he fell in love with hip hop music. He was inspired by groups such as NWA, Run DMC, and Rakim. By age 13, he was creating his own lyrics but found it difficult to write them down. For Fernando, it was easier to memorize his lyrics. He still uses this method to this day. By the age of 15, he was recording and putting his own demos out. In 1993, he met the late legend Roger Clayton from Uncle Jams Army. Rodger began to manage Fernando and hired him to work in his record store. In 1995, Fernando was opening up for groups such as Run DMC, Egyptian Lover, Lenny Williams of Tower of Power and The Temprees. He has performed in multiple venues throughout California. In 1997, Fernando met Jesus Gonzalez who recognized his talent and put out his first two projects. Fernando has since released four LPs, seven 12-inch records, and multiple compilations that have sold nationwide. He has worked with producers such as Dwayne Simon (Writer of LL Cool J's "I'm Bad" album), Max One and Omega, just to name a few.
In 1999, he attended his first pro boxing match which inspired him to become a pro boxing judge. He was told by established officials that it would be almost impossible to become a licensed official. He took that as a challenge. So for the next 10 years he attended hundreds of boxing matches, scoring fights from the sidelines and being persistent. Thanks to the help of Hall of Fame referee Marty Denkin and Ray Corona, in 2010, he officially became a California boxing judge. In this short time he has judged 10 title fights for the IBF and judged boxing matches involving fighters such as Rafael Marquez, Alfredo Angulo, Jermain Taylor, etc.
In 2009, Fernando was in the San Fernando Valley performing his boxing inspired song "Sweet Science," when he met Lou Pizarro. They began talking and became good friends. Lou gave him the opportunity to perform at Fiesta Broadway in Los Angeles, as well as acting in various TV pilots. Being an avid sports fan and his love of boxing, he asked Lou if he could be part of the Repo Radio team as sportscaster. Now he is a proud member of the Repo Radio team. Fernando still works on new music and pursuing an acting career.
