Felony Fame Takes the Title For Coldest MC In The Nation

Zip up your coats because the Coldest MC in the country has been named.

Many weeks ago, we teamed up with Coors Light® to find the country’s coldest MC, one who could spit rhymes like the frostiest winters, and after brutal competition through several different judging and voting rounds, New Jersey-bred rapper Felony Fame has been crowned the coldest of them all. Also known as Propane Fame, the Newark native moved to North Carolina at a young age and got an early start on his rapping career, soon becoming a rising phenomenon. After some tough times in NC, he returned to his roots in New Jersey to focus on developing as an artist, dedicating himself to the art of hip-hop. Fame describes his title by saying, I chose the name Felony Fame because I wanted to be known for making records, not having a criminal record. I have an alter ego, ˜Propane’ Fame, which showcases my versatility and creativity on records that are for any genre. Felony happens to be for the streets.

Fame put that versatility and creativity to the test on July 26 at the Coors Light® “Search For The Coldest finale, hosted by Ice Cube, where he competed with seven other finalists in a random freestyle battle to see who was really the coolest spitter in the game. With help from judges DJ Khaled and DJ Drama, the score was settled as Felony Fame held it down for the Charlotte, NC crew with his heavy hitting punchlines and unique use of metaphors. Now, he’ll cash in on $10,000 in studio time to build a track produced by DJ Drama, and will be featured on the upcoming Search For the Coldest Mixtape, presented by Drama himself. Congratulations to DL, Chris Akinyemi, Tarik Trotter, The Lyrical Maze, KOVE, Lois LS Lane, and Aquil for making it to the finals in NYC.

Calling yourself Every Gyrlz Fantasy is a gamble from the get-go. After all, women look for different things in a man, right? Some might want him to be wealthy, others might prefer him to be passionate and some might like him to be a woman. But before we start sizing up Antuan Savey and Aaron Mitchell, the two singers that make up North Carolina’s EGF, let’s consider what they’re bringing to the table. There’s In A While, a minimalist R&B ballad with tinkling piano keys and whispers of synthesized strings. I just wanna meet you, see you, feed you, we can do whatever you like, Savey and Mitchell sing. Fellas, you just earned yourself some points. Then there’s Shawty Throw It Back, a heated little mid-tempo groove that shows some serious dance swagger. Quoth EGF: All I want to see you do is make your body roll, Beats like these make such a request hard to resist. So maybe they’re not every girl’s fantasy. But the ones who like to dance might want to get to know these guys a little better.
