Download Family Business and Family Affair

December 27, 2010

The Family Business album is now available as a stream and download from thefam.bandcamp.com.  You can name your own price to download the album in various formats (from $0 to whatever you want to contribute).  Do yourself a favor and listen to this album in a good system.  Play it in the stereo in your living room.  Play it in your car.  It deserves to be heard in all its glory.

Before the album, the 15-track Family Affair mixtape was released to promote the new project.  This mixtape was “hosted” by the fans and supporters who called into The Fam’s voicemail.  It was initially available for a limited time only, but it has just been added to thefam.bandcamp.com as a free stream and download.  The mixtape features exclusive tracks, collaborations, interactions with callers, and plenty buggin’ out.  Don’t sleep on gems like EJ’s “Forever Yours,” Timid’s remake of “Mr. Carter,” and my hilariously ignorant “Arby’s Hat.”

If you like what you hear, please “like” it on the pages and use the share links to spread it around.

Pizon interview with the eXponent

December 14, 2010

What can we expect from Pizon in 2011?
I’m working on new solo material. I wrote a whole album but I scrapped it and started over. My focus is on making the best Hip Hop music, not just of my career, but that’s out there. I want to push the envelope. I want to win a Grammy, and I won’t release another album unless I think it seriously could. My immediate focus is on re-establishing my brand as a solo artist. I think there’s some mileage in that “Perspectives Pt. 1” joint that you can download free from Floodgate. I’m about to push that as a buzz single. It’s ill, because there are 3 sides to that story already but you still don’t know what really happened. Who really killed Rosa? There’s more to come. I’m also planning a book, and there’s been talk of a possible sequel to Family Business called Family Jewels.

The Fam f/ Willie Spade – “We Want It All”

December 9, 2010


 Vodpod videos no longer available.

It took me forever to get this mix sounding right, and there were many failed attempts at the hook before Willie Spade came through.  I like how this came out.
