Toronto artist Famous is the first and only independent musician in the history of Canadian music to be nominated for a Juno Award and Much Music Video Award for a debut EP after only a year into starting his rap career. Take that in! His first release “I Rap Now” is a very well-crafted, short play album, with production from Grammy nominated producers Boi-1da and Tone Mason. It spawned 5 songs, 4 videos, 3 radio hits, 2 major nominations, MTV performance, cross country tour including dates with Nas, The Clipse, Method Man and 1 “Best New Artist” award south of the border from 93.7 WBLK. It would seem that based on that, it’s fair to say that the old adage just may be true, “We all wanna be famous”. As a fan of Hip Hop music, Famous ensures that every single lyric is clear, true and full of intentional meaning. Taking cues from Bob Dylan, Chuck D and other prolific artists who concentrated on more on their message, Famous understands that his voice is a tool that can be used for the betterment of a generation and he’s not wasting a single breath. With many of the songs on his adventurous “Goddess Girl” focusing on various aspects of peoples everyday lives, the 8 Part mini-movie soundtrack, which he wrote and directed, became a viral triumph for the young rapper with views eclipsing the elusive 6 figure mark incredibly early. Whether or not many people recognize it at first, there’s something exciting that happens anytime a new artist like Famous comes along. Sure, the first steps all have a similar feel to them regardless of the performer, but there’s just something different about the special ones. It’s the day when the tipping point is finally reached and all the early adopters get to say, ‘I told you so!’ It’s the day when all the promise that is so clearly laid out penetrates the pack like the sun breaking through the clouds after a storm. It’s the day you’re being warned about right now. So do yourself a favour and mark your calendars with a red sharpie, you only get one heads-up. He’s Famous and he’s here to stay and for that we have chosen him as our Featured Artist Of The Week.
