BYRON BRADLEY A.K.A. F.A.M.E, THE BOISTEROUS ACRONYM WHICH STANDS FOR FIRST AMONG A MILLION EMCEES, EMERGES FROM THE GHETTOS OF 3RD WARD HOUSTON, TX. NO ROOKIE TO THE INDUSTRY F.A.M.E JOLTED TO THE PINNACLE OF THE HIP-HOP INDUSTRY WHEN HE LANDED HIS FIRST MAJOR DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH PRIORITY RECORDS IN 1993. BEING SIGNED TO NEWSTYLE RECORDS, A HOMETOWN INDIE LABEL HEADED BY DOUG KING THE PRODUCER OF THE MEGA HIT FOR THE GETO BOYS MIND PLAYIN' TRICKS ON ME, F.A.M.E WROTE AND CO-PRODUCED ALONG SIDE OF KING THE SMASH HIT, "SAMETHANG" WHICH WAS A NATIONAL ANTHEM FOR THE STOP THE VIOLENCE MOVEMENT QUICKLY RISING TO NUMBER FIVE IN THE NATION ON AMERICAS BILLBOARD CHARTS. BEING LEAD EMCEE IN THE GROUP SAT-N-SMOOTH AT THAT TIME, F.A.M.E'S SAMETHANG HIT LANDED THE GROUP FREQUENT TOUR DATES ALONG SIDE ARTISTS SUCH AS ICE CUBE, EAZY-E, ONYX, MC EIGHT, E-40, HIGH FIVE, POOH-MAN, AND VARIOUS OTHERS. WITH SO MUCH SUCCESS FROM ONE SINGLE IT WAS TIME TO RECORD AN LP. F.A.M.E (WHICH AT THE TIME WAS KNOWN AS BRAD-D) WENT BACK TO THE LAB TO WRITE THE GROUPS LP ENTITLED "THE AWAKENING" AND SECOND SMASH HIT SINGLE, "MAMA NEVER TOLD ME" A HARD CORE RENDITION OF GHETTO LIFE WITHOUT GUIDANCE. THIS SMASH HIT RELEASED NATIONWIDE ALONG WITH A VIDEO THAT SKYROCKETED TO WEEKLY NUMBER ONE SPOTS ON MTV, BET, AND VH1, BOOSTING THE GROUPS TOTAL ALBUM SALES TO OVER 300,000 UNITS NATIONWIDE. OVER A DECADE LATER F.A.M.E HAS BEEN BEHIND THE SCENES WRITING AND PRODUCING FOR ARTISTS SUCH AS HOUSTON'S OWN PAPA RUE AND FORMER NO LIMIT RECORDING ARTIST, MR. SERV-ON, FOR WHOM F.A.M.E PRODUCED SIX TRACKS ON HIS LATEST LP "NO MORE QUESTIONS". PERFECTING WHAT HE CALLS "THE PORTAL" WHICH IS A LEVEL OF LYRICAL PERFECTION IN WHICH ONLY THE MOST GIFTED ONES CAN ACHIEVE, F.A.M.E VOWS TO GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS ONE OF THE ILLEST EMCEES EVER TO TOUCH A MIC.
