Family Business Enhanced Listening Party, 6/2

May 6, 2009 on 11:01 pm | In News, The Fam | No Comments

On the same day the album is released, The Fam will be hosting a special broadcast on FamTV called The Family Business Enhanced Listening Party — Tuesday, June 2 at 9 PM EST.

What is a listening party?

A listening party is an event where people are given the opportunity to hear a new album.  This one will be taking place online, so that the entire world will be able to join in!  It is absolutely free to attend.  Simply log into FamTV by selecting it from the menu above, or by going to www.mogulus.com/famtv for a bigger view.  It is also accessible via The Fam’s MySpace page.

This is an “enhanced” listening party because in addition to hearing the entire album, you’ll be able to see visuals on the screen AND chat live with all three members of The Fam, special guests, and other fans about the music.  It’s a truly revolutionary concept that represents The Fam’s cutting edge approach to Hip Hop.

Don’t forget to join us as we make history on June 2 at 9 PM EST, only on FamTV!

The Fam interview on Gee-O’s Podcast, 5/4

May 4, 2009 on 11:02 pm | In News, The Fam | No Comments

Pizon and Timid of The Fam chopped it up with Gee-O about the Family Business album, dropping June 2.  Highlights of the interview include Gee-O asking what’s expected on this album and Pizon responding, “No autotune!” and Timid explaining the significance of using different flows on every song.  The way the project was structured to have cohesion so that it wouldn’t sound like a mixtape or compilation was also addressed.

The interview starts 11:20 into the clip above.  It can also be downloaded in MP3 form.  To hear the entire episode as well as others, log onto geeomusic.podomatic.com.  Don’t forget to subscribe to Gee-O’s Podcasts so that future episodes will automatically play on your iPod when they’re available.

A veteran’s response to “Devil On the Doorstep”

May 1, 2009 on 1:29 am | In News, The Fam | No Comments


This message was left on The Fam’s voicemail (which can be reached at 212-845-9935) by a United States veteran in response to the song “Devil On the Doorstep” off the Family Business album, dropping June 2.  The socio-politically charged song can currently be heard exclusively on Pizon’s MySpace page.

The Fam would like to thank Danny, who in his call stated, “So many rappers out there nowadays just want to run their mouths about what they got…They think they’re cool, but you actually have a message.”  It’s this type of reaction that reminds artists why they do what they do.
