Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

New York Cities very own Big East. Big East derived his name from New York’s 5 feet 5-inch staple The empire state building. The Brooklyn giant looks to simply spread his undeniable talent, knowledge and true love for music through his lyrics, using his words as the tool rather than a weapon. His latest single entitled “JUiCE” AKA “Tropicana Lemonade”. Does just that, allowing East to express where he’s been, But more importantly where he’s headed


Check out a brief interview the rising artist

What were your Motivations to start making music and to continue?

At first, I just enjoyed freestyling and rapping in front of the older dudes around the way. Shortly after that, it progressed into me writing my own songs and performing. Everyone that knows me, knows I love attention, and through music, I feel like it was meant for me to be this natural born entertainer.

What is your ultimate career goal?

To go down as one of the best Recording Artist to do it on all levels and remain Consistent.

Who have you worked with other producers artists etc?

I’ve worked with I.L.D productions, Charle Horse Beats as well as J.Casperson on a production level. As far as features, I haven’t really worked with too many up and coming artist or mainstream artist for that matter.

Places you’ve performed?

I’ve performed at Webstar Hall, Sob ’s, Club Lust, Club Love, Black Thorn, Angels Strip Club, City Scapes, Strip Club, Aloha NYC, Tavern Lounge, Lyrics Lounge out in Philly to name a few.

What are some old projects you have released: how did they do?

I have two Mixtapes that I’ve released a while back in the early stages of my career. I elected to keep them up on datpiff.com for now because it shows my progression

What’s next?

I’m working on a visual for my single, “JUiCE AKA TROPICANA LEMONADE” more shows and bookings, more press, air play, radio interviews and guest appearances.
