It’s been a while since New York and rap music as a whole has had a hip-hop duo in the game. Red and Meth probably were the last and now Fame and Chizz are stepping in. Besides being talented on the mic as solo artists and as a duo these two have seen the industry from all different angles.

Whether they were interning at Ruff Ryders or attending college and writing rhymes in class these two have the kind of love for the music that you just don’t see anymore. They’ve been on tour, they’ve won awards, and now these two die-hard New Yorkers are ready to take it to the next level.

Sixshot.com caught up with Fame and Chizz to discuss being a duo, going to college, and why the South is different from New York. - www.sixshot.com


There are many benefits to working together and Hip-Hop duo Fame and Chizz with over a decade of knowing each other are certainly benefiting from double timing the industry.



In a time when groups and duos don't seem to outlast a few years, these high school friends have beaten those odds and continue to grow together all the while almost effortlessly complimenting each others dedication and talent. Formerly known to the world as The Commission, Fame and Chizz have revamped and are starting fresh. Not always an easy task, but they are most certainly up for the challenge to reach new goals and new success.

Fame and Chizz ink deal with Affiliated Entertainment Group album to be released by E1
Entertainment (Formerly know as Koch records)
On Saturday September 5th 2009, Super Hiphop duo from Brooklyn and Queens, New York signed their
one album deal with Affiliated Entertainment Group. The album is set to be distributed by none other
than E1 Entertainment formerly known as Koch Records. The album is set to be released early 2010
with the tenative album title as "First Breath". The album is set to have features from Lil Wayne, Snoop
Dogg, Nate Dogg and Affiliateds own "Shortyo" whose album is scheduled to release October 13th
2009 entitled "King of the Kounty".Fame and Chizz have developed a strong fanbase by touring all
over the USA and blowing the roofs off of several venues, in addition they have been headliners and
drew thousands of spectators to come witness greatness. Fame and Chizz are expected to be a huge
success and their fans sit patiently and anticipate the duos first LP.

Circa 1999, when New York City’s borough rivalry was at its worst, an unlikely friendship was formed between Brooklynite, FAME, and Queens native, CHIZZ. The two met in their freshman year at Louis D. Brandeis High School in Manhattan. One day while sitting in the lunch room they witnessed some of their schoolmates ‘spitting some corny lyrics” and decided to go home and write some rhymes of their own. They soon formed a group with six other rappers and became known as the Dark Agez. This group disbanded quickly as it was apparent that FAME & CHIZZ clearly outshined the other members of the group.

FAME & CHIZZ took a little break from the performing side of the business. FAME became an intern at Roc-A-Fella records, while CHIZZ interned at Ruff Ryders. After high school, CHIZZ went Norfolk State University in Virginia while FAME stayed in New York City in search of a record deal. They soon realized that they could get further if they worked together so CHIZZ returned to New York to search for a record deal with FAME.

FAME & CHIZZ, formerly known as The Comission, have independently released more three mixtapes and have been featured on more than 15 mixtapes. They have toured the East Coast, performed at numerous college campuses such as Shaw University where they performed with Young Jeezy and Lil’ Wayne. They also headlined a show at Alabama State University’s Joe L. Reed Acadome in 2006.

FAME & CHIZZ have been making quite a mark in the hip hop industry. They’ve been featured in numerous internet magazines/websites including Yoraps.com, Ballerstatus.com, Hiphopgame.com, UnderDaRock.com, HipHop.org, MusicSnippet.com as well as in Rap Fanatic Magazine and Hip Hop Weekly. Additionally, two of their videos “We Gon Ride” and “Ryder” can be found on YouTube.com.

FAME & CHIZZ’s remarkable talent, combined with hard work and determination will get them the deal that they deserve. The title of their first mixtape pretty much says it all about this duo. . .“Sleep When I’m Dead”
