Born in Greenspoint, Texas, USA, Fesu, his name a corruption of his real name Yusef, began his career with a single on his own label, Air-Run-Boy, ‘Salt N Da Game’. The follow-up, ‘Streets Of Greenspoint’ picked up a lot of local radio coverage, but it was with the lauded ‘Blind, Cripple And Crazy’ single that he really made headway. The Source magazine was particularly impressed, promoting him as a major new talent. Although born a Muslim, it was not until he encountered the teachings of Louis Farakhan that Fesu found a spiritual direction and became a member of the Nation Of Islam, a process recounted in the single. He went on to record a 1994 duet with Bobby Womack entitled ‘Going Round N’ Circles’.
