Rapper Famous launches iAmFamous iPhone application [News]
Toronto, ON – Are you Famous? The charismatic, innovative rapper from Toronto can now add iPhone app to his resume. Last week marked the launch of iAmFamous, an application that provides users with many of Famous’ videos and singles along with interactive features allowing for user comments and social networking integration. The app comes after months of preparation by Famous and his team including Rez Digital and makes Famous the first Canadian rapper with his own iPhone application.
“I’m telling everybody just let a nigga breath,” says Famous in response to everyone’s questions about how he made it happen. “Just let me have it for a little bit then everyone can have one. But just hold it down for a minute.”
Famous goes on to explain he used a company who has a blueprint for iPhone apps, so after that it simply came down to plugging in the required content and choosing the options he wanted. Famous points out there are a ton more options available, but he decided to keep it simple in the beginning.
“It’s just a matter of choosing the stuff you want included in it and then you gotta pay for it,” says Famous. “There’s way more than what I have right, but it’s like fuck am I really going to spend that much, at this point? Like at least wait till the app gets bigger. But its good to see the numbers, we just really wanted to see the numbers and see what it does and see if its worth it.”
With this move Famous once again cements himself as a leader when it comes to branding and promotion. This initiative gives him another set of statistics to put in his pocket beside things like radio spins, downloads, video views and webpage visits. It seems even in the downtime between his releases, Famous is still making news.
“Don’t think you’re not gonna see the kid man! Don’t think you’re not gonna see me,” he preaches.
To download the application to your iPhone, iPad etc. search “iAmFamous” on your device.
