IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
FAME DOLLAS: My name is Fame Dollas and I’m a rapper/songwriter from Philadelphia.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
FAME DOLLAS: I started rapping at the age of 9 years old.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?
FAME DOLLAS: The first rap video that influenced me was ‘Follow The Leader’ by Rakim.To this day he is one of the artists that I model myself after as far as lyrical content. I am the oldest child of 9 kids and I was born on December 7th, 1982. Throughout my life I have had many personal struggles that I had to overcome to get to this point in my music career.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
FAME DOLLAS: The thing that sets me apart from most artists is that I take my real life occurances and incorporate those stories and experiences into my music. As a child, I had to find a way to get attention from my mother and father so I chose to pic up a microphone and try my hand. Now I am a father of 2 girls and 1 boy and I am expecting another son any day. So my goal is to touch people hearts through my music and help them get through real life situations.
