YoursTru Bigga Talks About the Rap Game and New Single, 'Big Boy'

Florida rapper, YoursTru Bigga says he loves hip hop and R&B and considers himself to be a student of the game. He explained, "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. I'm constantly trying to learn as much about the music industry as I can." And he's ready to show the world his finished product. Bigga recently dropped a new track that mixes the sauce of R&B with the finesse and wordplay of rap. Entitled Big Boy, its the first single off his upcoming EP project, "Worth the Weight"

On the song, YoursTru Bigga let's the ladies know why they need a Big Boy in their life. His melodic vocal flow is smooth, and there's a smooth sensibility and confidence to his delivery. Coming up, he was influenced by such artists as the Roots, Outkast, 2pac, The Notorious B.I.G., Mobb Deep, Jay-Z, Nas, Redman, Wu-Tang, Snoop, Too Short, Twista, Eight-Ball & MJG, UGK, T.I., TrickDaddy, J.T. Money, Bone Thugs, Busta Rhymes, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, KRS-1, Rakim, L.L. Cool J., Gang Starr, and Naughty By Nature. 

A champion for his hometown of Tampa, Florida, YoursTru Bigga understands that along with the hustle, (he constantly collaborates with other artists in his area) originality is a key component of getting to that heavyweight status.  He says, "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."

"The p*ssy gon' rain and your legs gon' shake"

His music is also as real as it gets.  He believes 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," he explained,  I as an artist strive to put into words the situations that we as people face everyday, thus making my music something that people from all walks of life can relate to."
