I started doing music at 13 and have been doing music for a grip. I started doing R&B and then branched off into hip-hop, which is how I developed my style mixing R&B and Hip-Hop to make the distinctive Platinum Bound sound very commercial appealing but with a razor-edged hard-core feel to it. In 1998 I co-founded Platinum Bound Ent. (along with S-Dub) Released our first single in 2000, got some good feedback.
That prompted me to release our first compilation, because we knew we had the talent and it was our time to shine, (we also wanted to shut-up a few haters).
So now, we have also picked up another artist, 80 proof and he is off-the-chain, so now I know it''s only a matter of time before the world hears what Platinum Bound has to offer. It is definitely
Our time to shine.
My name is Shawn Williams, but my stage name for rap is S-Dub. I''m from the Midwest in a
Small town called Kankakee, about 45 minutes from Chi-town. I''ve been doing music for a
Long time mainly Hip Hop and R&B, but never really put out anything yet. My main focus was to master my skills in writing, rap-style, and leadership skills, knowing that I have to lead and set
An example for the artist under the Platinum bound label that I co-founded along with ExCel.
Right now in my life I can honestly say that I''ve reached that point, so as an artist and producer
I feel that I''m ready for the world to hear me. I try to put passion into everything I write, trying to stray away from just putting out just anything, because not only are you cheating yourself, you''re cheating your fans
My musical influences came from being raised going to church singing in the choir, and at home listening to Marvin Gay, Sam Coke, and a of others to many to name. I have come a long a long way and I haven''t given up yet, I''m still continuing to pursue my dreams of making it in the music industry. Let me quote a phrase in one of the Hip Hop songs that I''m in- "Hip-Hop is a way of life, and I love this shit!!!" and that''s the way I truly feel about it.
For all viewers and open ears across the world. I go by the name of FAME AKA Frankie G
From the Illist state Illinois, bringing the Ill noise. I''m a black male dedicating myself to the music I make and to the music industry period. I''ve been doing music for 4 years and soon hope to become a young Hip Hop icon in the field of music.
In the summer of 1998 I became friends with Big Brandon AKA BMG. We decided to become rappers to see how long we could go with it. We started kickin off freestyle sessions with rappers
In the city. Our home town of Kankakee. Every since then, I''ve been doing music. That''s what makes me love what I do. Freestyle sessions.
Me, I''m a competitive person that likes challenge, that''s why I''m so determined to do what I do best and that''s explaining myself through music. I first found out that I could touch people through my music at age 13, battle rapping earning respect on the mic and as an individual. Who
Most inspired me to rap was Heavy D, Flava Flav, LL Cool J, Jay Z, and NAS
What makes it so hard for me and everybody else down in the Keys(Kankakee) is the lack of
Opportunity. To be right on the money ain''t nothing down here benificial to the modern day black man in anyway. Jobs.......few, Women......few, Businesses.......few, Clubs........few. It''s
Nothing that you can really be proud of. But one thing I can say is, that it''s a lot of great people born and raised here, that need to be recognized, and the group that I''m with shows you a few. And we(FAME & BMG, D.O.G, TONY, and SHAWN) are ready for our come up, all we need is one shot. As well as I, 80 PROOF
