BIGGS
: The Future of
Detroit
&
Beyond

ASPIRING RAPPER
Biggs understands his value. He wants to be signed to a major record label like Columbia Records because of the longevity it provides to great artists like T.I. and Snoop Dogg have. He spends countless hours in the studio. According to Biggs, he's "there until [he] finishes... anywhere from 6 to 8 hours a day." In regard to collaborations, Biggs says, "Young Buck was my greatest collaboration thus far because he gave me real life advice while working on the track,
D Boy
." Another inspiring collaboration with Rich The Kid because he "was able to meet with him, [they] gelled well, and made music great happen in the studio!" They produced a hot track that will be featured on Biggs'
Campaign
called,
The Kitchen
. Biggs is always up and open for volunteer work when he's not in the studio with his first love; music. Biggs is very careful in the studio, as he records in front of only a selected few.

In This Bitch
,
Money
,
Strap Yo Nuts On

Biggs started rapping at the age of 4. His mother has rare footage of him starting his rap career at a birthday party around this time. As time progressed, he began to collaborate with a group comprised of several individuals that he grew up with called BandGang. Ambitious, Biggs continued to hone his skills in an effort to pursue his music career within the group.
Biggs' first independent recording was
The Family
, a mixtape released in 2014, performing with other skilled rappers from BandGang. Some of the tracks from the mixtape include the critically acclaimed songs
Slippin'
,
Band Gang or No Gang
, and
We Rock
.
This year, Biggs also plans to launch his solo career with the album, Biggs Campaign. The title track will be a huge hit, as Biggs plans to reach the top of the hip-hop charts, as his fanbase has tremendously grown over the years. Featuring appearances by members of the BandGang as well as Young Buck, Rich the Kid (Migos), B-Legit, Payroll (Doughboyz Cashout), amongst a host of others, the recording should do much better than previous albums. Several independent producers are currently working on the project. Some of the artists that Biggs has opened up for include, but are not limited to, Fetty Wap, 2 Chainz, Yo Gotti, Lil Boosie, Juvenile, and Detroit's own Dej Loaf.
Biggs' favorite song is
Slippin'
. Originally, the beat was proposed for the group, but no on liked it, so he told the producer, Vonte to speed up the beat and it became a solo piece, which has nearly 2 million views on YouTube. Biggs mentions, "Vonte is my favorite producer. I wish he lived in the studio with me!" Biggs' favorite city to perform is anywhere he performs his music! One of his truly favorite places, after Detroit of course, is Oakland, California, because of his large fan base.
His mother, Jamea Willis is currently his manager. Biggs looks at working side-by-side with his mother as a win/win situation because, "She's moms & she won't rip me off!" Biggs' success formula is "to believe in yourself, which makes other people believe in you. Push hard and put you mind to it."
