Bio

Breezy, confident, agile, witty, clever, creative, and visually brilliant at painting pictures with words that never leaves the imagination hollow, are all the many ways used to describe this newly put together underground rap duo from "Charlottesville V.A." "FAM B.I." In the past 8 months "FAM B.I." has taken the "DMV" (D.C., MARYLAND, VIRGINIA REGION) BY STORM BY DOING SHOWS ALL OVER INCLUDING TRIPS TO NORTH CAROLINA, WEST V.A., AND MEMPHIS TENNESSEE" opening up for major artist such as Brick Sqaud Records artist "Frenchie", Def Jam artist "Lil Ru" (Def Jam), "Freeway" (G-Unit), "2 Pistols" (Cash Money Records), and "Maino" (Atlantic Records). "FAM B.I." has developed a tremendous buzz, and huge fan base locally and regionally in the past 8 months. Just recently "FAM B.I." was awarded the honor of being featured in the nationally known "HIP HOP WEEKLY MAGAZINE"!! Also the group just recently shot the video for there 1st street single to be released nationally called "TO DA WHITE MEAT", a song which is heavy on the streets locally and has also gained some attention from people within the industry. "FAM B.I." consist of "Boogie" and "Killa Da Butcha", who both come from low income backgrounds, came from single parent families, and at an early age in life had to become men and take care of there own. The group only talks about what they know, have done, but never talks about what they don't know, or have never done. They talk about coming up, making it out the hood, parties, women, and hustling in anyway possible to get themselves as well as there families in a more comfortable position in life. "FAM B.I." stands for "family business", and as a business you have to grind everyday to get ahead, and to stay ahead, because if you don't than somebody will take your position. Hustling is life, and life is a hustle. For the almighty dollar "FAM B.I." is willing to do whatever it takes to make that next dollar more powerful than the last. "FAM B.I." by location is influenced heavily by everything "MIDDLE EAST", but most of all there passion is music with substance.
