Besides bank, Scarfo earned a priceless buzz, which reached A&R's and quickly spawned a Con Air performance for Def Jam heads Antonio "L.A." Reid and Shawn Carter. "It was actually Jay's first day at work," Scarfo recalls of the January showcase. "While my group was performing, people were telling Jay to keep his eyes on me specifically. "After an encore worthy showing, both Scarfo and Con Air were offered contracts shortly after. Wisely, they accepted.

Dancehall- Reggae superstar Buju Banton has teamed up with Def Jam Records number one draft pick, rapper Sam Scarfo, for the blazing new Hip-Hop/Ragga banger Who Want It.

Crafted by veteran producer Bink (Jay-Z, Lil Kim, Fat Joe), Who Want It is the first look single from Scarfos eagerly anticipated debut album Renegade. Signed by Jay-Z his first day on the job as Def Jam president, the Jersey-bred rap artist initially made noise after entering the stage at New Yorks renowned Fight Klub and winning big money battles against some of the citys finest. Yet, more than just a battle rapper, Scarfo recently told XXL magazine, My main goal is to make classic music that reaches everybody, from little kids to 30- year olds.

Packed with lyrical firepower and yardcore delivery from the legendary Banton, Who Want It is a definitive classic, easily taking its place at the top of the heap of true blue Hip-Hop meets Reggae collaborations.

Bio

Out of all the emcees in the entire world dying for this spot, Jay Z’s first artist goes by the name of Sam Scarfo. He could possibly be the luckiest man on earth. Sam’s the ultimate emcee package; fearless swagger, sharp lyrics and a mastery of music. Now is the perfect time for his grand entrance.

The Plainfield prodigy, pimped the game by force when he and longtime business partner, Lawrence “L” Kyser formed Gorilla Pimp Records in 2001. GP’s Buzz tripled after Scarfo made Fight Klub history in 2004.

"They say I won the most money at Fight Klub in the shortest amount of time in history. I just took my show up to the 29th floor, and did what I had to do."

The family now consists of a brash five man group called Con-air, and the sexy songstress, Andrea Lee. Like Rocafella and Bad Boy, GP Records is poised to take their opportunity in the white hot light of entertainment and parlay it into viable businesses, in any industry.

The Brooklyn born, New Jersey native, has since been dubbed the "Next Big Thing" by Def Jam heads, and is also said to be a top priority at the label. Sam’s a natural. He’s a breath of fresh air inhaled by an overcrowded multi billion dollar industry. Without a whole bunch of mix tape noise or underground DVD appearances, Scarfo is absolutely certain to take Def Jam back to number one.
