At age 15, he was a Freestyle artist for the label Ventura Records. He went by the name 'Frankie Boy'. He had a couple of songs, like "She's Leaving" and "My Precious Love" but didn't achieve much success in his music career until later when he joined the Latino group 'Los Kumbia Kings', which was a Spanish-language mix of Cumbia, pop, rap, and R&B. In 2000, they crossed over to an English language album and had the hit single "U Don't Love Me". That time, he went by the name Cisko. He finally made his solo debut in 2003 with the hit "Don't Wanna Try", which he says was the song that he owes his whole career to as 'Frankie J'.
Fall 2003: Radio Interview on 106.9 K HITS (in Tulsa, Oklahoma) where he and Baby Bash sang "Suga, Suga" but changed the words from "Suga, Suga, how'd you get so fly?" to "Tulsa, Tulsa, how'd you get so fly?" He also sang "Be Home Soon" and said it was a "sneek peek of what to expect from his solo album."
Songs released include: "Suga, Suga" (2003; featuring Baby Bash), "Obsession (No Es Amor) (May 2005; featuring Baby Bash), "Don't Wanna Try No More" (2002), "We Still" (2003) and "How To Deal" (June 2005).
He says his song "How To Deal" (2005) is his most "...autobiographical song" on his album.
Is a regular guest at 106.9 KHITS Radio station in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
