I would say my music is commercial and radio ready with a conscious message snuck in there somewhere. I'm like a backpacker wit a street edge.

Biography

Born in Downtown Charleston, 23 year old Cj "The Infamous-C" jr. saw first hand why his city stays in the top ten most violent in the U.S. His only goal was to get away from the lifestyle that some of his peers went to prison or died from. Even as a self-proclaimed "nerd", he was tempted by the allure of trapping. Since he was 8 years old he was all about getting money and wanting to be rich. Back then, the only problem was he thought he could do it by selling candy and video games. As a child he took a trip with the family to Chicago. When his older cousin started playing the tape of "Life After death" by Biggie who had just passed a couple months before, "C" knew he was hooked. By the the time he got back to Charleston, he had a new rap name, created from the rapper that inspired him The Notorious B.I.G., and a rap book filled with multi-syllable rhyme schemes. Those pages contained stories of how his dad chose not to be in his life and having to deal with the constant taunts and everything associated with not being popular. Now he's set to take the game by storm, bringing back real hip-hop and making Charleston known for something other than violence.

My influeneces are The notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Big L, Eminem, Scarface, Jay-Z, Big Pun, T.I., Nas.

What seperates me from other rappers is that I don't have the overly used story of the drug dealer rapper. I never sold crack. I didn't have the cars with rims or the fine women. My pain comes from being the nerd in school and being alone. Not having a father to look up to and canstantly being told by people that I'm not going to make it with rap. I have an unbreakable will to succeed and actual talent to back it up.

Discography

I made one album so far called Who is The Infamous-C and I'm currently shopping that along with a demo. I'm working on new material as I type. I'm also working on getting radio play.

Set List

Currently don't have a set list. I'm talking with two managers to set up performances at different venues in Atlanta.
