More on Sam Scarfo:
Sam Scarfo is a gifted songwriter who began his musical career with local emcees from his hometown of Plainfield, New Jersey. Bubbling under the surface for years, the Brooklyn-born lyricist calmly created a movement powerful enough to catch the attention of acclaimed video director Bennie Boom. Now, as a former battle champion and Def Jam artist, Scarfo is preparing for the release of his next independent project The Package on April 3, 2012 via his own Gorilla Pimp Recordings.
The Package will deliver a unique blend of appearances, including L.A. rap vet and former DPGC member Bad Azz, New Jersey mainstay Serius Jones, Brooklyn lyricist Sha Stimuli, G-Unit West rapper 40 Glocc, R&B crooner Ernie Gaines and many more! Production from the likes of Indiana Jones, Clipsmoke, Havoc, Chad Wes, Ommas frm SA-RA and others creates the perfect backdrop for Sam Scarfo’s raspy vocals.
As a rising star in the tri-state area in 2003, Sam Scarfo first teamed with IBC Entertainment for management, with hopes of securing a major label deal. He entered the intense underground battle circuit, and conquered all at the world-renowned MTV-broadcasted Fight Klub battles in 2004. He went down in the books after winning the most money in Fight Klub history, and it wasn’t long before newly appointed Def Jam management Jay-Z and L.A. Reid summoned Scarfo to their office.
On Jay-Z’s first day at work, both Jay and L.A. decided unanimously to sign Sam Scarfo to Def Jam contract and imprint deal with his own Gorilla Pimp Recordings, to include future releases from young Scarfo and his four man group, Conair. Although he waited several years for that debut album release, the project was shelved, and Scarfo was finally granted release from the deal.
Now independent, Scarfo’s career in recent years boasts a national concert tour with Mobb Deep, a collection of successful mixtape releases, song features on NBA Live 05, Madden 06 and Activision’s True Crime: New York video games, and a movie role in the comedy A Talent For Trouble starring Mekhi Phifer and Hassan Johnson. Additionally, Sam Scarfo’s hit single “Who Want It” featuring Buju Banton appeared on the soundtrack of the 2006 action thriller Waist Deep starring Tyrese Gibson and Meagan Good.
Moving into 2012, Sam Scarfo is ready to deliver The Package to his fans.
“I love the freedom of being independent in this digital age,” Sam explains. “This allows me the freedom of owning and controlling my product. It’s been far too long since I put something out as a complete project, and I know my fans have been waiting. With The Package, I want to show the whole spectrum of Sam Scarfo. My music has the potential to inspire all types of people, from the street corner hustler with limited options, to the college kid working on his Masters Degree.”
