MP3: Dupreme - "iPod"

From Famous Records:

MP3: Dupreme - "iPod"

Today in the world of music, it seems as though most artists are convinced that if they produce a recording the public will automatically respond in a positive manner. This is hardly ever the case! As a matter of fact, most artists never get discovered or really get heard, beyond their own inner circle of friends, and family. Unfortunately, as time continues, talent seems to have less and less to do with musical success; just listen to the radio; but every so often an artist appears that has something very, very special; then it becomes a matter of exposure, and when a manager or a recording company is blessed enough to discover an artist who works extra hard at perfecting his talent and craft…it’s going to be a really good day!!! Dupreme is such an artist!!!

Dupreme Ammonds was born in the East New York section of Brooklyn New York. In his early years, his family moved to Southeastern Virginia where he attended High School. His talent, dedication, and drive overwhelmed the entire staff of Carpe Diem Artist Development Group, and Famous Records. We all agree that we have an artist with true talent, and potential staying power… In our opinion, Dupreme is definitely destined for greatness…you be the judge. Here is his debut CD, “Humanized Robotics”.

Famous Records Artist Gdep Admits to Murder... in 1993!

From Famous Records:

Famous Records Artist Gdep Admits to Murder... in 1993!

After 17 years of living with guilt, Trevell Coleman, better known as rapper G-Dep, walked into the 25th Precinct on Wednesday and admitted to fatally shooting a man outside of an East Harlem housing project almost two decades ago. The victim was John Henkel, a Queens man whom Coleman attempted to rob on the night of October 19th, 1993. "It was just eating away at him," said one police source.

Coleman reportedly confessed that Henkel resisted the robbery and grabbed his .40-caliber gun. Coleman then allegedly pulled away and shot Henkel three times in the chest, and upon review of the cold-case file all of Coleman's details matched. Coleman was 18 at the time, but has been arrested 25 times since 2003 for drugs, burglary and grand larceny. He has been charged with murder, and is being held without bail.

Coleman is best known for his album Child Of The Ghetto, featuring the single "Let's Get It.". He was signed to rapper Diddy's Bad Boy Records at the time, and Diddy performed on the single. Coleman reportedly no longer has ties to the label and is currently signed to Florida based “FAMOUS RECORDS” headed by Industry veteran Jeffrey Collins.

Collins is reportedly “in shock”! We have recently released his NEW album “Ghetto Legend” and had some great plans for promoting his forthcoming single “Hold On” quoted one of his label’s representatives.

G. Dep originally joined the Bad Boy family during the rebuilding years following the Notorious B.I.G.'s death in the late '90s. Hailing from the same Harlem streets of fellow Bad Boy rapper Black Rob, Dep, aka the Deputy, first appeared on Rob's 1999 debut album and subsequently continued to make cameos with other Bad Boy artists. Following Puff Daddy's conversion to P. Diddy, Bad Boy entered its Saga Continues era, beginning with Diddy's album of the same name. Dep played an important role in this Bad Boy era, being second only to Black Rob as Diddy's right-hand man. Dep's debut album, Child of the Ghetto, appeared in late 2001, featuring "Let's Get It," one of the better songs on the previously released Saga Continues, along with the lead single "Special Delivery." He resurfaced in 2007 on Bad Boy with an independently produced album featuring Loon, another Bad Boy artist. Now that he has joined the FAMOUS RECORDS family, We trust you will enjoy listening to the man from the ghetto!
