"MY GOAL AS AN ARTIST IS TO EDUCATE, INSPIRE, AND ENTERTAIN."
Tony Famous (Kendall Delashment) is a Roseland, Chicago native who allows his creativity and storytelling ability to showcase his skills as a wordsmith. His love for writing and producing hip-hop music is a direct reflection of his past experience as a poet. His lyricism narrates the multi-faceted life of living in Chicago; his sharp lyrical observation focuses on the violence grappling his hometown, confidence in his musical passion, and life experiences as a college graduate. Never settling for recognition as just a great hip-hop artist, the Donda's House affiliate received his Master’s degree in Interdisciplinary Arts from Columbia College.
