Toronto-bred Juno/Much Music award-nominated rapper/actor FAMOUS presents the self-directed music video for “Mr Simplistic”, the FindingSergio-produced single from FAMOUS’ new album Center Stage, out now with features from Julian Wheeler and David Delisca as well as Francesca & Lisa Michelle. “Mr Simplistic” features Youtube star Madilyn Bailey, and comes on the heels of FAMOUS’ video for “Next Year” (watch). FAMOUS has collaborated with Wale (listen to “My Eyes Red”), Grammy-winning producer Boi-1da (listen to “Typical Girl”), has clocked over 1 million Youtube views, and has shared stages with Nas, The Clipse and Method Man.
“I had a meeting at Atlantic Records in California to discuss a few projects and I bumped in to B.O.B and his people at the offices. His A&R said he’s taking submissions for his new album at the time. So on my flight home I had the producer of the record “FindingSergio” send me a few bangers. This one stuck as the radio hit and perfect followup to his Bruno Mars-assisted single “Nothin’ On You”. The record was written by the time I touched back down in The 6. It never got placed. Ah well, it’s mine now!”
