Uncle $@m, a.k.a. Tha Thumbprint Killa and Sam-I-Am, is an independent rapper from Lansing, MI. He started recording at Elm Street Recording after he connected with Brian Ziegler, a.k.a. Young ZZ, of the local pop-rock band, After We Fall, in January 2010. With an entrepreneurial mind and spirit, he founded 517 Entertainment that same year.
On September 16th, 2013, Uncle $@m was nominated for the BOOM Awards 'Entrepreneur of the Year'. Even though, he never received the award, Uncle $@m considers the nomination as a "major accomplishment after 3 1/2 years of business."
Today, Uncle $@m has "stepped out of the spotlight" to focus more on managing 517 Entertainment and its artists while only performing at events organized by the label as a "fill in act."
