Versatile Recording Artist „Famoe“ Is Doing Things His Way And Succeeding At Every Step

Up-and-coming recording artist Famoe is currently making waves in modern hip-hop and rap music. His stage name is taken from the initials of his real name, Fabiano Montesano. Famoe is originally from the city of Santicelli/Cosenza in Calabria, Italy but is currently based in Suessen/Stuttgart, Germany. He owns a record label called “Rap & Rhymes Records.”

Famoe started as a hip-hop dancer when he was only six years old, often mimicking his idol Michael Jackson’s moves. However, it was an album by hip-hop superstar Nelly called Country Grammar that inspired him to turn to rap. In 2001, he joined a music video clip contest in Germany as he was encouraged by his dance teacher. Famoe reached the final round of the competition, and this started his career in dancing.

Rap & Rhymes Records was founded by Famoe in 2003, where he met his friend Nino, who was a former hobby remixer. Later that same year, with Nino’s help, he recorded his first-ever EP called Dancing in My Block. He also made his first single entitled This Life, also produced with his friend Nino. Famoe released his debut album in 2006 titled “The Italian Stallion,” which had over 1000 CDs in circulation.

Over the last decade, Famoe has worked with numerous recording labels, such as Universal Music, Sony Music, and Kontor Records. He has also worked with top producers in the dance genre like Stephan Endemann and Alex Christensen, who helped with his records as well. He changed his stage name from Fantastical to Famoe in his quest to continually improve his branding.

Famoe is motivated by his drive to make unique music as he deems it to be rare in modern-day music. He always wanted to do things he feels passionate about and create music his way. Going with the flow in the entertainment business is good, according to Famoe, but every artist should aspire to be different and unique.

A self-confessed 90s kid, Famoe considers hip-hop legends like 2Pac, Jay-Z, Nelly, 50 Cent, and Timbaland his musical heroes. However, it’s Eminem, whom he cites as the biggest influence in the style of music he’s making. Famoe had the privilege of being the opening act for artists like Blackstreet, Public Announcement, Dru Hill, Shai, 112, DJ Nassr, and many more. He’s had numerous collaborations, both on stage and on record, with some of those artists.

Famoe is slowly increasing social media to his fame as well, as he has ventured lately with Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and Officialfamoe.com.  His graphic novel Soundtrack is also currently in the works, set for production by JayMo, which he plans on releasing for the Kill Journal that is directed by Adam Lawson & Ari Wiener. As well as other projects like an EDM Record entitled “It’s ya Boy’’ by Famoe & Lynx that will be published by a US Label called SoCal Records, an EP called “Paradigm” that includes Artist features such as TQ & Big Brovaz by the end of the year and 2 official Soundtracks for an Independent Movie War from the Archives directed by Godfidence Losu, with Actor Hasaan Rasheed. 


Famoe also released more original materials with some artists he worked with such as:  Kurupt, Spider Loc, Serius Jones, Donnie Klang to name a few.

Despite experiencing some success as a musician, Famoe continues to work on releasing music that is unique. He wants to set his own mark and wants people to remember him as someone who did things differently. For Famoe, it’s not about becoming the best artist, but doing what you love.

Hip-Hop Artist Famoe Shares His Inspirational Musical Journey

Fabiano Montesano, better known for his stage name Famoe, is an English rapper who started his musical career with the name Fantastical. He was born in 1987 to Italian parents, but he’s currently based in Stuttgart, Germany, where he produces most of his music. He has worked with numerous recording labels during his career before deciding to launch his own record company called Rap & Rhymes Records

Famoe’s career in entertainment began in 2001 when he joined a music video clip contest by MTV Germany, where he reached the final round. He joined another talent competition shortly after, performing his own cover of a song by American hip-hop rapper and singer Nelly. Famoe considers Nelly’s 2000 album Country Grammar as his inspiration to start his ventures in rap, which became instrumental in his music career.

Despite being new to the industry, Famoe decided to establish his own music label, which is what the world now knows as Rap & Rhymes Records. Through this company, he met Nino who works with him to produce his music, including his first EP, “Dancing in my Block.” Nino is an experienced mixer, so his services came in handy for Famoe, as he released his first single entitled “This Life.”

In 2006, Famoe finally released his first-ever studio album, which he called “The Italian Stallion.” The album was released with a circulation of around 1,000 compact discs, which coincided with the changing of his stage name. Famoe traveled to Boston in 2009 to work with Surefire Music Group who produced his album Xplicit. That same year, he recorded his two music videos as well, “Actin Like This” and “On and On.”

Famoe split with his manager in 2010, which paved the way for his collaboration on a dance production with Stephan Endemann. The finished material was entitled “To The Top,” a smash hit that reached in the compilation charts a number one and was on many international compilation charts a top ten in other places. Famoe also worked with Sony Music and Universal Music and merged his Rap & Rhymes Records with Roksolid Entertainment in England in 2010.

As a sub-label for Roksolid Entertainment, Famoe founded Rap & Rhymes Records Ltd. in London after dissolving his old record company. This was an excellent decision as his career continued soaring, even reaching number one on the German music channel Yavido with On & On. The first release under Rap & Rhymes Records Ltd. is a compilation Album called “Past, Present, Future,” inspiring the release of his mobile app.

Famoe shares that in his success, he boldly did things differently instead of going with the flow and following others. He wanted to be that unique artist that the music industry is sorely missing these days. He always desired to do things he’s passionate about, and for him, it’s all about music. His fans can see more of his journey through his Facebook, Instagram, and YouTubeaccounts.

Famoe wants to set his mark as the music artist who dared to be different. He continues working to improve his artistry despite having spent years in the business already. For Famoe, it’s not about becoming the best musician, but it’s about loving what you do.

THE KILL JOURNAL Exclusive: Rapper Fabiano „Famoe“ Montesano On Bringing His Own Style To Comic Book Art + Radio Interview



Brand new indie comic series The Kill Journal is gathering a lot of steam in its Indiegogo campaign, and we got the chance to talk to one of its artists, Famoe, about his work on the book. Check it out!

Writer and filmmaker Adam Lawson has been putting out fantastic work for years, from shows like Escape the Night and comics like The Eighth. He has recently been putting a lot of time and energy into creating comics with his new company, Failed Superheroes Club. The goal of this company is to create stories that feature heroes with flaws. Considering nobody is perfect, it’s the perfect premise for some exciting stories. 

Failed Superheroes Club also brings talented creators from around the world to lend their talents to these stories and get their work out to the masses. One such creator, who has worked on some pages of a new series called The Kill Journal, is Fabiano Montesano, better known as the rapper Famoe. Besides his music work, he also has an amazing talent for tackling everything from line work to coloring. However, his contributions to The Kill Journalextend beyond the colors he provides.

As Famoe is a musician, he has also worked on an exclusive tie-in album for the book, and its first single titled „I’m a King“ has gained massive success on all music streaming services. The book’s exclusive album will also be included with the comic’s hardcover release in 2021, as part of the book’s Indiegogo campaign (a campaign that has already exceeded 100% of its goal).

We recently sat down for a chat with Famoe about his work on The Kill Journal and some of his inspirations for the horror-themed title; his answers had us diving into all forms of media and even the potential that the book has for television!

Hear our exclusive chat with Famoe via the podcast player below. Fans of The Kill Journal’s art will also find our interview with the book’s writer, Adam Lawson, along with the transcript.
