It’s Over produced by DJ Priority

Bars. I’m alive and #ThePromise is coming soon. Something to hold you over, I know you’ve been patient.


Ben Famous – Finishing Move produced DJ Priority

New music produced by DJ Priority. Inspired by 90’s arcade culture. Those were the days fam, put your quarter up and wait your turn. No cheese and stay on your side. Those were the days. Ha!


Behind the scenes clips from A3C festival in Atlanta

These videos are from two panels I attended while at the A3C Hip Hop Festival in Atlanta. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had.

A five day festival with almost zero police presence. Just 24 hours of hip hop and knowledge all the time.

You wouldn’t believe how many artists I met on a person to person basis. The vibe was so relaxed and everyone was so accessible. I made a lot of friends in the game and I learned a lot. I will definitely be going back next year.

Above are two clips I actually captured when I wasn’t busy living the situation. There were moments I did not film because I’m just not walking around with my phone out to film…I was literally soaking in the vibe and enjoying every second of this. The clips are of Cardo talking about how he produced “Seen it All” for Jeezy and the events surrounding that. The second video is 9th Wonder being recorded live on an episode of the Combat Jack Show. Both are crazy you had the to be there moments.

Check out the videos and share them as much as you like. Peace.

The answer to our troubles is simple but complicated all at once, you have to unlearn everything and become new. I’m with you, you don’t have to do it alone.


Paper Chase Remix produced by Brady James

Remix before I even dropped the original…I’m about to start heating up.

Dear Rapper #7: Don’t worry about what they say

Ted Clayton. Ben Famous.  Harvest Works NYC, 2013

 

 

I know, I know…everyone has an opinion. I know, I know…music is changing.

I know, I know…you’re supposed to be a certain age. I know,I know…you need to sound more like him to be relevant.

I know….I just dont care.

Rap music was always about self expression and more than anything the narrative behind your journey. If there is anything people respect its hard work and dedication (copyright Money Team lol).  If you love music and are truly dedicated to this journey keep creating. I go against the grain on most things and thats what makes me unique, I also go against the grain when it comes to the age issue.

PushaT1

 

Case in point: Pusha T says in a recent record that he is 36. Thats a revelation considering that it has become the norm for rappers to lie about their age and profess to be younger to “seem” more appealing or in tune with the hip hop generation. Lmao! The hip hop generation is timeless, thats why Pusha is regarded so highly he could care less what you think about him…check Wrath of Caine mixtape he has a song about it, ha!

See the real truth at hand is the neverending question. Do you love this? Love is a strong word and shouldn’t be taken lightly. I know alot of heads who “like” to rap but that doesn’t mean they love it. You may “like” making songs and the attention it brings when you mention whatever project you been working on, but if you love this…it’s in your bloodstream. You can’t hide it and truth be told you shouldn’t want to.

So grab your rhyme books and turn off the tv and the radio…focus on being yourself and being creative, that’s what the game needs man. We don’t need any clones…just be you. If you can tune in to your zone and create something special and fearlessly share it with the world regardless of what people may say or think about it, your a rebel and a true artist. Be that. 

Just don’t forget to ask yourself that question first…”Do I love this?”

 

I love this. Amen.

Ben Famous – Megatron Bombs


Megatron Bombs Digi Booklet

As you probably guess, making Megatron Bombs a success is a fulltime job, that includes a lot of red tape. Whether it be distributors giving me a hard time, venues overcharging the new artist, radio hosts not investing in my music but asking me to come on their show and so on, Im still going to stay true and show gratitude to my fan base.  Its because of you guys that my album is a success and its also because of you that my ideas get out. Thank you for the retweets, the mentions, the reposts and the physical support. This is for you.

My distributor couldn’t include the digi booklet and make the release date so I went on without it. Here is the pdf, enjoy. I couldn’t do it without you.

Thank you.

Thanks to everyone involved. There is no feeling in the world like seeing a vision become a reality. Megatron Bombs!!!!


Megatron Bombs: On the set of “Head Noddin'”!

The first video from #MegatronBombs has been shot and is currently being edited. Head Noddin prduced by Brady James inspired a very creative idea and lead to an awesome day of filming & fun for the cast and crew.

With the help of some very talented people, an amazing concept came together, that had been in the making since before Megatron Bombs was released to the public. Thanks to some very dedicated GDM Team members and a few very beautiful and talented ladies, the vision became a reality.

If you are still one of the few people who have not purchased Megatron Bombs feel free to do so at the Itunes Store, AmazonMP3, Napster and Rhapsody outlets. The album is a creative feast of lyrics and beats that will no doubt satisfy even the most choosy music connoisseur. Of course, the videos have to be just as creative.

Keep on the watch for Head Noddin’ and many more visuals from this incredible album, below are a few more visuals from the set of Head Noddin. Stay tuned!

Thanks for holding me down. More to come!

 


Megatron Bombs is here!!!!

The wait is over! Thank you so much for your undying support! This is huge!!!!

Attention!!!!!!!!


I want that #9 Summer Jam

Crazy. Fun. Entertaining.

All I could think about was being on that stage. I need it in my life.

I’m so ready…it was all the battery I needed in my back before I release Megatron Bombs.

 

P.S.

Me and my homey @KennyFahim had a little side wager on who had the illest sneaker game for Summer Jam. It came down to my Derrick Rose “Super Lights” and his Jordan “bordeaux”.

Who won?
