Five Questions with thefame©
There’s a whole new world of sound coming at us and thefame© (T: @) is part of that sonic revolution! Being an artist AND producer gives him a unique angle from which to present his perspective…let’s meet him!
Tell us about your current project and or single!
Well my most recent project is called “Summer At Midnight” which I’ve been receiving the most love out of any of my projects. The title pretty much describes itself. It’s a project full of dark & vibrant emotions. I’m really proud of the project & myself for completing & having the public love it so much.
Do you feel your current project is the best introduction to you as an artist?
In my opinion, “Summer At Midnight” is the perfect introduction to people who aren’t familiar with my music. It has so much connectivity & so many relatable messages that strangers to my music would feel like THEY even know a part of me.
What is the music landscape in your neck of the woods?
In my neck of the woods everyone is trying to become a rapper or artist…& I don’t knock em! If they believe they can do it then pursue it. Just take it seriously because a lot of people don’t. But the music scene used to be horrible for rap & R&B in the part of Pennsylvania I currently live in. That’s why I usually stray to either Philly, New Jersey or New York. But it’s getting way better for those genres & more serious artists are starting to link more which is great.
So far I’m still trying to finish 2016 haha. But I do have plans for 2017; tour, merchandise, physical CD’s, music videos. Things like that, but I’m taking it slow. I’m a perfectionist so I want to make sure everything is perfect.
The Hype Magazine wants to know: What’s been your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?! Or “WTF?!” moment thus far in your career?
Haha craziest thing is when I received an email from this dude saying he loved my music. He said he had his girl listen to some of my songs & they made a sex playlist on Soundcloud. Then they made an amateur porno to it & he wanted to send it to me lol. Was cool at first but turned weird when he wanted to show me it. But yeah, music is so damn powerful & amazing lol.
Bonus: thefame© just dropped this piece called “WYD” it’s a dope trip from the #Euphoria lane of music…let us know what you think!!!
