The Fam – Family Business: A Look Back

The Fam – Family Business: A Look Back

 Coincidently I’ve gotten a few pictures recently and randomly from people who picked up the group project Family Business that I did a few years back with the homies Pizon and EJ under the name The Fam. I say Coincidently because recently Pizon and I reconnected and chopped it up about the project.

The first 3 episodes of Family Business – A Look Backis now on YouTube. There will be more to come with a new episode being released each week for the next several weeks. Go check them out, leave comments, share the videos, and check out the album.

Timid and Pizon (Jay Carter and Mike Scala) take a look six years back to 2009. The two emcees along with a third, EJ, released the album, Family Business, under the group name The Fam. Producers on the album included Mr. Porter (aka Kon Artis of D12), Kno of CunninLynguists, Domingo, Timid, and Gary Botello.

About The Fam
With three different backgrounds resulting in three unique mindsets, the three members of The Fam offer a fresh take on Hip Hop. Pizon, a native of Queens, has been on the scene all decade, recently signing with Rawkus Records. His rhymes are a product of the harsh realities of his troubled life. Timid, having lived on all four coasts and calling Hawaii home, stakes his claim wherever Hip Hop may manifest worldwide. He brings a global perspective to the table. EJ, a representative of Houston, effortlessly combines East Coast lyricism with Dirty South flavor.

Timid – I Want The Secret (Music Video)

Timid - I Want The SecretWith “I Want The Secret”, Timid addresses the dire situation recent and soon to be college graduates face everyday. Rising tuition costs, mounting debt and a bleak job market await their future. The problem is a major concern of the Occupy Wall Street movement and focus President Obama’s new Student Loan Reform.
