To the Fellas, Females, Friends, Foes, Fans & Family who have been following the FAMOUS project since the release of 4th Biggest City in Jan 2008 (I’m nice with the wordplay lol), it is with great pleasure I announce that I’m currently in NYC working on my debut album titled CENTER STAGE!
CENTER STAGE: THE ALBUM comes after a 3 part EP series titled Road To Center Stage hosted by Hot 97’s @RealDJKaySlay and Atlanta’s own @DJDrama. The EP series features production from Grammy Award Winning @Boi1da (Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne) and @ToneMason (Drake, Jay-Z) as well as unreleased reference records for Taylor Swift, B.O.B & Akon. With 13 official videos (all independent) associated with this project generating over 1.3 MILLION YouTube views, the buzz is finally gaining the recognition and the name is finally starting to make sense.
Make sure you check the blog portion of RoadToCenterStage.com which was created to give fans a behind the scenes update as I work towards the main stage.
More great news!
Over the next few months I will also be on tour visiting many of the beautiful countries thatI’ve performed in over these last few years.
With dates in Rotterdam, London, India (Tentative), Hong Kong, Taiwan & Shanghai, I can only imagine the influences that will seep into the creation of CENTER STAGE: THE ALBUM (plus some wild stories!).
No immediate details or release dates, cause I don’t want to jinx anything, but I wouldn’t be Famous if I didn’t grant you all a #BACKSTAGE PASS!
PS: I was happy as FvcK when I got the call! Had to write a lil sometin sometin: http://www.hulkshare.com/6ez7r98x7udc

As we approach the FEB 12 official release of the ‘All I See’ [Perception vs. Reality] video, I called upon lyricist extraordinaire, D-Sisive, to give you his perspective on things from a T.Dot state of mind.

During the holidays, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by a very positive energetic little character by the name of Payal Doshi. She hosts a segment on a show called V-Mix, which shed’s light on Toronto’s South Asian Music scene.
Now I know you guys are like ‘Famous you ain’t South Asian’, well besides the fact I’m a star in India (watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwbUUrnFP5Q ) lol, I also featured on a Sri Lankin Remix track called ‘Double Game’ by Steve Cliff and Princeten.

For those who are familiar with my story, I’m sure you can re-call ‘The Ghostwriter‘.
Well he’s been in the studio working hard on them placements. I’ve had the opportunity to write for some great artists. Some release the songs, some don’t.
Here’s a few that didn’t make the cut, figured I’d release them on Road To Center Stage EP: Part 3
“The Ghostwriter, the the Ghostwriter, I got ni55as tryna kill me just to be they Ghostwriter”
