Carlos Ferragamo is an emcee, producer and songwriter from the Parkchester section of Bronx, New York. Initially Carlos began his music career as a part of local rap crew called the “Knights of Just-Us”, but due to creative differences he decided to go solo. It was then that Carlos made the decision to attend the historically black university, Florida A&M University after hearing stories about aspiring artist falling victim to music industry pitfalls due to a lack of business acumen. While focusing on his studies at, Mr. Ferragamo continued to hone his skills as an MC as well as a producer.
In 2005 hard work began to pay off when Core DJ member, DJ Speed Racer (a founding member of School Boyz Entertainment) asked the young MC to craft a promo track describing his daily radio mix-show. Speed Racer learned of the Bronx native off the strength of the buzz that Carlos generated rhyming for veteran rapper (and former Firm member) AZ during AZ’s visit to Tallahassee during the same year.
In 2006, Ferragamo participated in The Source magazine’s Unsigned Hype Freestyle competition in a similar fashion as underground rapper Donnie Goines and won. As a result of his victory, he was featured in the magazine’s October 2006 issue. He later became featured on various Urban sites such as HipHopMusicDotCom.com, Hip Hop Ruckus, HipHopHavoc.com, and Ourstage.com.
Since that time, Carlos has continued to put out quality music under UTMOS, Inc./ Allergic To Failure, LLC. He’s released mixtapes; such as 'And So It Begins' and 'Hip Hop Music.' His 'Shades of blue: Spoken Words From Calligraphy' EP contains production from producers Ty Fyffe (Foxy Brown, Busta Rhymes), QB Da Problem (50 Cent), Nefarious! (Amor Jones), and Chris Prythm (Lloyd Banks).
