How did you get your start in music?
It all started with wanting to be heard at the age of 11. My auntie’s boyfriend was a DJ so when she went to her boyfriend’s house I could go and record with his DJ equipment.
You have a song with Pastor Troy. When did you record it and how did you link up with him?
I actually have two songs with him. One I did in 2017 called “Pull Up Remix” and the “No Cap Remix” was in 2019. I reached out to him and he responded back. Then I paid Pastor Troy for a feature.
What makes you different from the other artists in your area?
I help create trends not follow them. I’m also very diverse. My sound and delivery makes me stand out no matter where I go.
Tell us what all you have going on musically right now.
Honestly, just staying consistent, doing what I love to do which is music. I recently dropped an album titled “Crazy King”, a mixtape called “Alabama Lottery 6”, and a single titled “10:10”. I have my own clothing line as well. You can shop at www.1FammEmpire.com/Store I also have an upcoming show in Dothan, AL on December 26th at Club Epic Events. I’m dropping a new single called “Know Dat” at the beginning of next year 2021.
You are nominated for Indie Label of the Year 2020. How were you able to grow your brand name?
Yes I was…and by staying consistent focusing on my craft.
