Introducing INFAMILLZ, reppin' Flushing, Queens from top to bottom.
INFAMILLZ is part of a musical family. He became interested in music at about twelve years old, watching his older cousin Bully rap. "I used to write rhymes and practice making songs on my karaoke machine in the living room. One day Bully recorded me on his computer and it sounded so dope! I've been rapping ever since." Mr. Cheeks of The Lost Boyz is another family member who encouraged INFA to rap. "Cheeks would bring me to the studio and let me record music with him and that boosted my confidence. I started taking music more seriously then Bully named me INFAMILLIONS because I said I was in it for the millions. I eventually shortened it to INFAMILLZ.
INFA spent the next four years perfecting his sound which he describes as 'New York hip-hop' yet versatile. Growing up in the early 90's he was mostly influenced by lyricists JadaKiss, DipSet, 50 Cent, Fabolous and Lil' Wayne. "I was too young to understand the vibe Nas, Jay-Z and Biggie had going on at the time. When i got a little older I listened to their music again and I was able to relate. Noreaga was from Queens so i definitely felt his music."
In a time where music lacks originality, INFA is a breath of fresh air. "I have the talent to mimic any sound or style but I prefer to sound like myself and where I come from. (laughing). I don't use typical slang or rap about sippin' lean and poppin' pills. I'd rather be myself, smoke some weed and drink Hennessy. I rap about my real life and what I do in Queens...Pomonok Houses to be exact. I want to give the fans an image of my true self through my music. My ultimate goal is to sound like an artist that I would want to listen to."
INFA is starting the New Year off right. His latest mixtape, "BOTTOM OF THE TOP" drops in January of 2018, followed by a collaboration project titled "IN FLUSHING WE TRUST" with his partner H aka OCHO. INFA and H are solo artists and part of the group DONZ (Donz Depend On Noone). INFA and legendary rapper ROYAL FLUSH have a new single as well. "I named my mixtape "BOTTOM OF THE TOP", because I am on top of my game yet I still have a long way to go. As for the collabo's title, it speaks for itself. I'm reppin' the town that made me."
INFAMILLZ is spending his holidays on the grind at Hall of Fame Studios with super engineer, Teardropz, putting the finishing touches on his upcoming EP, "SHOULDA BEEN SOONER". "I chose this title because the dedication, work ethic, time, money and energy I've invested in my music up to this point 'shoulda brought me success sooner." No worries young bull, something tells me it won't be much longer...
