"THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH"
Batman and Robin, Martin Lawrence and Will Smith, Starsky and Hutch, OutKast, BlackStar, the list of famous duos could go on forever. We all have and know famous duos that we have enjoyed watching, listening to, laughing about, and waiting for the next project that they will do together. FAM4LYFE is no different. Hailing from “Money Earning” Mount Vernon, New York, these two lifelong friends began their music careers as solo artists, but soon realized that by coming together, they could and would be a force to be reckoned with! Inspired by some of the greatest artists of our time, A- Lova and Rocky Johnson decided to alert the world to their presence as a duo. They have dubbed their sound, “LOVEROC”, which will appeal to all audiences and cut across all demographics.
FAM4LYFE’S first single, “SUPASTAR” which was released in 2010, is garnering praise from all over the nation as well as on the international stage, from as far away as Japan, the U.K., and Switzerland. Due to their work ethic, their single has also received compliments from record executives, and received a big stamp of approval from Grammy award winning producer Rock wilder, who said the group was “….the best of both worlds….” Besides having an "electric" single, they are also known for their energy and presence that they bring every time they hit the stage!
Living under the concept of P.C.P. (Progression, Commitment, and Passion), FAM4LYFE has incorporated this in every aspect of their lives. They are looking to expand their reach on the global level in the coming year and beyond. Their desire and commitment to be great is very evident. This talented duo is definitely coming for the “top spot” and is out to prove to the world that they belong in the conversation with some of the best duos to ever do music! Embrace the “LOVEROC” movement!
E.H.M.P.: Can you introduce yourselves to our readers? Who is FAM4LYFE?
F4L: It’s the R&B Crooner himself, A-LOVA THE VOKALIST, aka, THE ACAPELLA FELLA and Rocky J. Johnson, the Lyricist. Together we are FAM4LYFE, A R&B/Hip-Hop group like no other.
E.H.M.P.: How has Mount Vernon helped you grow into the artists that you are now?
F4L: It has helped a lot due to the competitive atmosphere and coming up behind all of the heavy hitters that are from here. It just keeps us focused on the goal at hand.
E.H.M.P: What makes you guys different from other groups that have collaborated?
F4L: The energy that we bring, the chemistry that we possess, and that the topics and sounds that we use exemplify our unique qualities. Unlike a lot of groups, we plan to actually stay a group.
E.H.M.P: How has your friendship evolved since you decided to join forces?
F4L: We were friends/brothers way before we decided to join forces and further our careers as a group. It’s a blessing to have someone that you consider a brother to share this road to success with.
E.H.M.P.: How did you get involved with the Elegant Hoodness Musical Program?
F4L: Actually through Twitter. We heard about you guys via someone else, had the team research it and reach out to you guys and from there we just networked and started building a professional relationship.
E.H.M.P: What is the concept of P.C.P.? and the “LOVEROC” Movement?
F4L: P.C.P. stands for passion, commitment, and progression. It’s our motto that we live by because without passion and commitment there will be no progression. LOVEROC is our definition of our genre of music that we produce.
E.H.M.P: What do you feel is lacking in the industry today?
F4L: Integrity, loyalty, consistency, respect in terms of “Life Music,” as well as a lack of substance.
E.H.M.P.: Where can we catch FAM4LYFE next?
