Cameron Thierry is better known to his fans as Infamous Thierry. The name “Infamous” was given to him by an OG when he was young, and it stuck when he later found it was a synonym for “notorious.” Thierry explains that “Infamous is a representation of the hoods across the world, about having enough ambition to make it out.” With “I Remember” at 2.5 million views on YouTube, he has scheduled his new single “Projects” to drop early summer. “It’s a song for everyone in the world, whoever came from where they were to prosperity,” he says, “it explains a lot of what I had to do and what I lost to make it out.”
Infamous Thierry represents his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana where Boosie Badazz, Webbie, and Kevin Gates originated. He states, “I grew up listening to Webbie’s “Savage Life,” Lil Boosie’s “Badazz,” Kevin Gates’ “All Or Nothin’,” and Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter.” Listening to these artists inspired Thierry to start making music around the age of seven, leading to his career in the entertainment and music industry, which he feels to be his greatest achievement so far.
The sound he brings to his music has been influenced heavily by Boosie, Webbie, Kevin Gates, Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Meek Mill, Drake, Future, Nipsey Hussle, and Wiz Khalifa. As of right now, his playlist consists of Meek Mill, Young Dolph, Drake, Kevin Gates, and Dave East. “If I could collaborate with any one artist living or dead it would have to be Jay Z. I chose Jay because I know it wouldn’t jus’ be a song he’d give me so much knowledge-making that one track. Plus the song would be a classic,” Thierry says.
