Kelly, Tyrese, and Hip-Hop moguls, Biggie Smalls, Lil Wayne, T.I, Nas, Ludacris, 50 Cent, Twista, as well as Chicago’s own DJ Nate, and Tha Pope. Big Sexy began rapping when he was around the age of 6 or 7 recording on his grandmother’s tape recorder, over the years becoming a west side wonder and not looking back ever since. He is the new voice of the west side speaking for his generation, and a younger generation. He’s drilling his way into Chicago’s music and dance with raw catchy hooks and 1 verse songs and his smooth but hard delivery which continuously sets him apart from the rest, also his outstanding way of dancing while shirtless and trying to encourage all plus size individuals to have confidence.
