He also mentioned that he had a lot of struggles in terms of his health, and had seizures due to an illness which he didn’t really go into in too much detail.
The Creation and Popularity of Filthy Frank
Frank initially had a comedy sketch YouTube channel entitled DizastaMusic which later earned a significant amount of popularity when he conceptualized the character Filthy Frank. His first channel grew significantly, gaining 800,000 subscribers, but he would soon stop posting to it, due to the fact that the channel received numerous community and copyright strikes. He later created the YouTube channel TVFilthyFrank, which would gain even more subscribers than his first channel. His Filthy Frank persona reached the top 500 among YouTubers, attracting over 5.2 million subscribers and over 600 million views. He also created a third channel entitled TooDamnFilthy, which accumulated almost two million subscribers.
Aside from his comedy content, he continued focusing on his music composition, having a passion for music. He created music from a character of the Filthy Frank show called Pink Guy, who showcased musical content similar to that of his YouTube channel. He has released various albums, including “Pink Season”, “Pink Guy”, and “Pink Season: The Prophecy”, which would increase his popularity significantly. He also performed as Pink Guy for the first time in 2017.
Joji and Serious MusicDespite the popularity of his Filthy Frank character as well as his comedy content with Punk Guy, he still desired to create more serious and traditional music, and adopted another stage name – Joji – to do so, and started posting music on the website SoundCloud. He mentioned that he started to create music while growing up to Japan, and realized that the popularity of his Pink Guy persona would pave the way for him to create Joji. He initially wanted to release his first serious album alongside Pink Guy’s album, but postponed it as his fans wanted him to create comedy music.
In 2017 he released several songs through the music label 88Rising, under the name Joji, which included songs such as “Will He”, “I Don’t Wanna Waste My Time”, and “rain on me”. He was also featured in the song “Nomadic” alongside the Higher Brothers and promoted his debut project, an EP entitled “In Tongues” released in late 2017, with a deluxe version released the following year. His music has been described as a combination of electronic, folk, trap and R&B, and he’s been compared to artist James Blake – he also mentions that his music was inspired in his time growing up in Japan. In 2017, he made an announcement that he would stop producing comedy, including Filthy Frank, as he had lost interest, and through deteriorating health.
Is Filthy Frank on Social Media
While the Filthy Frank YouTube channel is now defunct, and the lack of comedy content also means that there will be no Pink Guy projects upcoming, he still remains active online, particularly through social media websites Instagram as well as Facebook, on which he uses his stage name Joji. He mainly uses his pages to promote upcoming projects, including a tour alongside signees of the 88 Rising label. His Joji persona still seems to retain some of his comedy aspects, despite him no longer intent on producing comedy work; he is continuing to release singles as a part of his label.
There haven’t even been any rumours of Filthy Frank being in a relationship, having a regular girlfriend, or dating – no doubt such information will appear on his websites, if and when….
