South Central Los Angeles rapper WestFame Malone has had music instilled in him before he even started. He always had a love for it because of the music his dad played growing up although his my mom didn’t allow him to listen to it. Later he realized it was for a good cause. Malone learned the flow from it but couldn’t put the words together quite often. He began mirroring his talents behind Snoop Dogg, his biggest influence.
Starting at 16 and now a decade at the mild age of 26 and he can say that the work is finally start to pay off I’m from when I started, he recently dropped a new single “Full Speed” feat. Compton rapper AD. Inspired to do music based on circumstances happening in his community Malone felt like his music is a message that deserves to be heard in order to spread awareness and motivate others to stop the stigmas hindering the community along with police brutality.

WestFame: South Central, LA
RESPECT.: What does your name mean to you in the game?
WestFame: I can’t speak on what others feel but everyone has different opinions. I feel it means alot some may feel it some may dont but I don’t care because I’m going to continue to do what I do to show people what it is.
RESPECT.: What can we expect to see from you and what do you want to get out of the music?

RESPECT.: Including yourself who are done representers from the West you feel is in on top of it? Who would you like to sign with?
WestFame: Just Snoop Dogg, Snoop Dogg period he’s my favorite rapper of all time and plus he knows alot of game coming from labels like Death Row and No Limit plus he learned from the best and turned in to the best plus created stars too me he made Tupac bigger than what he was.
RESPECT.: You recently released “Bad and She Kno It”, what tone are you setting with your music and who are you trying to reach?
WestFame: Well really just the West Coast sound that’s what I like best, can’t forget the East Coast sound as well. At the same time I like too step out the box and try something new because no one wants to hear the same sound especially if they know what to expect everytime they hear you, you want them to wonder what you coming with and not assume. If they assume what you gone come with, it shows that you gotta come with more different material.
RESPECT.: Any upcoming project(s) releasing soon?
WestFame: Well I recently released the “F**k Off” visual out now got that “West Hannin” single that is coming on the way, got a E.P. in the works and that Bad & She Know It video in the works.
RESPECT.: What does RESPECT. mean to you?
WestFame: Before I begin with it I’ma say respect has nothing to do with criminal activity. They got it confused, but in my eyes to me it means that you do what you are saying you’re going to do in life and it’s ways of showing it without criminal activity. That’s where people got it confused. I’m with whatever comes my way but it’s other ways to show action on what you say, just make sure that your word is bond, show action, and do for those who do for you. You can be loyal to those who are loyal to you, that’s respect in my eyes.
