International Hip Hop sensation Famoe has been creating headlines for the past decade. The now Germany-based native has released records through Rap & Rhymes Records, Sony Music, Universal Music, Kontor Records, and more. For over seventy weeks he ranked on the Official Compilation Charts internationally. Collaborating with Hip Hop West Coast legend Kurupt, on the single “On My Side” is noted as one of Famoe’s most highlighted career moments. He’s also worked alongside Serius Jones, TQ, Big Brovaz, Donnie Klang, Spider Loc/Hot Rod (G-Unit), Scola (Dru Hill), Darnell (Shai), and that’s just naming a few.
Famoe continues to climb charts both internationally and nationally including several #1 iTunes charts in Turkey, Portugal, Belgium, and Canada, as well as several iTunes Top Ten charts in UK, Germany, Italy, Canada, Portugal, Belgium, and Turkey. On Spotify charts, Famoe ranks on several compilation charts in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, as previously noted, for over seventy weeks.
Famoe’s latest single “What I’ve Been Through” was chosen as the official soundtrack for War From The Archives, an independent film out of Ghana. Not allowing himself any room to breathe in his accomplishments, Famoe is now gearing up for his new single “Blessed” set to release on June 3rd.
With success surpassing lightspeed, It’s no shock that Famoe is up for multiple award nominations at this year’s 11th Annual Richmond International Film Festival (RIFF) June 7th-12th, which is one of the largest festivals in the Mid-Atlantic. His nominations include Best Hip Hop/Rap Award, Overall Grand Jury Artist of the Year, Critics Choice Award, and Audience Choice Award. The festival brings together national and international artists in the music and entertainment industry, and attendees range from Oscar winners to new, upcoming talent. The festival is jammed packed with films, live music showcases, industry panels, artist Q&As, industry pitch sessions, entertainment mixers, and of course the highly anticipated red-carpet award ceremony.
