Fame the 1st born of his siblings, to an African-American mother and Honduran father, traveled
back and fourth from Virginia and New York during the ages of 10-18, due to his parents split up. Fame’s
music was heavily influenced by both areas. Fame Life’s “stage career” began in live stage plays. From

elementary school up until highschool Fame was acting in on stage live productions. From plays “Shake-
speare’s Midnight Summers Dream” to musicals “Annie Get Your Gun.” Fame acted in over 15 plays and

was always on stage. He says this is what conditioned him to be so comfortable performing his music on
stage and being entertaining. He attended Woodside Highschool in Newport News, Virginia, which was a
magnet school for the arts. He originally enrolled for acting. Eventually he began gearing more towards
making music. He says he always wrote poetry, more so to get girls. Then he started writing more music
with a group of friends and they went on to start a LLC in highschool called 7 Cities entertainment and sold
over 300 mixtapes locally. His first rap name was “Shice” which he says sounded cool at the time. Fame’s

personality showed much of a comedic cocky persona, which his friends would always call him “Mr. fa-
mous”, the name Fame just stuck. Started as Fame-us then eventually to F.A.M.E Life (Fearless, Ambitious.

Motivated.Elevated) which is a acronymn for a certain way to live and be successful Fame has adopted
into life. Now based out of Brooklyn, New York, Fame Life has laid down a foundation for Ace of Spades
Entertainment along with 3 other founding members to create a multi-faceted major platform for all artist
to display their talents. From underground and indie musicians to visual arts,painters, instrumentalists
etc. To restore the connections of the arts and classic sounds. He performs and networks across the United
States working with the community to assist in driving passions while pushing his own.
