Money, Bone Thugs, Busta Rhymes, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, KRS-1, Rakim, L.L. Cool J., Gang Starr, and Naughty By Nature. “Not only do I listen to lyrics, but I listen to the production styles of some of the greats such as the Neptunes, Timbaland, Dr. Dre, TrackMasters, Jermaine Dupri, Mannie Fresh, and others,” says YoursTru Bigga
YoursTru Bigga is constantly trying to learn as much about the music industry as he can. He has recorded quite a few songs and is currently working on an album. He is also involved in the mixtape scene in Tampa Bay, with his own collection of mixtapes increasing in popularity within the local community and online. YoursTru Bigga is also featured with other up and coming artists throughout the Bay that are gaining recognition locally. “I’m all about growth and unity of the hip-hop scene in the Tampa Bay area,” says YoursTru Bigga, “which is a hotbed of talent just waiting for someone to spark the fuse.”
Over the last five years he have found a way to fuse his love of hip-hop, with his love of sports, especially his favorite sports team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This has allowed YoursTru Bigga to tap into a unique fan base of loyal supporters of the team. This shift in focus has provided him with numerous opportunities to gain more exposure than ever before.
What can I bring to the game?
“Originality. I don’t consider myself to be carbon copy of anyone. I was influenced by various artists from all over, with many unique and diverse styles, and the end result is a hip-hop melting pot. My flow and delivery are unorthodox, which leads to an unpredictability factor, meaning you never know what you’re going to get on each track. This is what keeps the fans wanting more, and the fact that my flow is versatile means that I can work with varying artists and production styles.”
“Authenticity. I believe that the strength of an artist lies in the ability to take the ordinary things around you and create something extraordinary. Just as a painter can paint a beautiful portrait of the simplest thing, I as an artist strive to put into words the situations that we as people face every day, thus making my music something that people from all walks of life can relate to.”
YoursTru Bigga is on radio rotation with the tracks ‘On My Team’ (feat. Kidd Dreamz) and ‘Misunderstood’
