The Knockturnal: Where does the name BlueBucksClan come from?
BlueBucksClan: It symbolizes our group of friends, there’s a lot of us. We all played football together and wanted to come up with a name to describe us. It stands for a group of people who are just tryna get money. Blue Bucks Clan – we just tryna get to them Blue Bucks, all the hundreds.
The Knockturnal: When in your relationship did you go from playing football together to recording music? How quickly did that happen?
BlueBucksClan: It wasn’t that fast because we knew each other as kids and we didn’t start doing music until 2019. We always were fans of music. We just felt like if we put our minds to it, we could do it. We felt like we listened to the best music already so we could make something not too bad.
