“It is one of my greatest inspirations to know that I am from the same parish as greats like Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, Burning Spear and Shabba Ranks. I aspire to leave a legacy as they did.”
While the musical fans recognize Future Fambo as Mr. Rum & Redbull,
the man born as Warren Gladstone Williams, is extremely proud of the fact that he hails from the “Garden Parish” of St. Ann, along with some of the most iconic legends of Jamaican culture.
Growing up his talent shined immediately, by the age of eight a young Future Troubles (as his was known) began performing for local meetings. By his teen years vocal talent gave way to physical and saw him as a member of the dance group “Crazy Boys”. As childhood passion gave way to a viable livelihood, Future Troubles evolved into Future Fambo turning his hobby into a career.
From his first hit “Iya Iya Hoo” (fashioned after a Jackie Chan movie), Future Fambo realized his knack for creating that perfect high energy song that’s easy to grasp yet exciting enough to incorporate dancing. This combination has made Future Fambo one of the few sustainable Dancehall acts over the last few decades.
2010 saw a groundbreaking revitalization within the grasp of Dancehall, one particular riddim and song tapped into that energy. Fambo’s mega crossover hit “Rum and Redbull” featuring Beenie Man, produced by Seanizzle. Future Fambo was able to keep the party flowing with follow up singles like “Wedding Crasher” (w/ Sean Paul), “Faded”, “Drunken Dance” and “Swaggin” (featuring Wayne Marshall & Tifa).
While Fambo has worked or collaborated with just about everyone in the Dancehall genre from producers to artist, his creativity and seasoned artistry affords him many opportunities to create with a variety of production houses to date. Recent releases include singles from Seanizzle, Kapa Shanti and UIM Records.
In August 2014, Fambo inked a deal with US based label, “Blaze Entertainment Records”, which has set out to produce and release Future Fambo’s debut album “Evolve – The Uprise”. Through Blaze Ent, Fambo’s album will see production from Grammy winning producer Magnedo 7, Richie Loops, Blahzae, Stylez and Sisco Kennedy. While the album awaits an official 2015 release date, it’s receiving rave reviews from industry tastemakers such as Atlantic Records own Mike Keran and Dancehall gatekeepers.
Premiere singles “Bloodclaute Song” and “One More Time” will mark the promotional launch for “Evolve – The Uprise”. So if “Rum and Redbull” is Future Fambo’s current legacy, just sit back and have one more as he journeys to legendary.
