About The Fam
With three different backgrounds resulting in three unique mindsets, the three members of The Fam offer a fresh take on Hip Hop. Pizon, a native of Queens, has been on the scene all decade, recently signing with Rawkus Records. His rhymes are a product of the harsh realities of his troubled life. Timid, having lived on all four coasts and calling Hawaii home, stakes his claim wherever Hip Hop may manifest worldwide. He brings a global perspective to the table. EJ, a representative of Houston, effortlessly combines East Coast lyricism with Dirty South flavor.
