Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Big Luck! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Big Luck: Ever since a child I loved music . I can remember reciting and memorizing everyone’s lyrics and rapping there lyrics over and over again and they would just stick with me in my head all day and night . I was very intrigued and interested in how music was made so I started to freestyle over these artists beats that I was listening to. From that point I wanted more structure and for my rhymes to make sense on more then just a freestyle level. so I started writing and learning the basics of how to write a song and how to count bars and come up with concepts and incorporate my life and put it into music . At a very young age I purchased a karaoke machine and that was the first thing I ever recorded on . After hearing myself I fell in love . Then from that point my cousin was a dj so I started recording on his dj equipment . After that I met someone who had a professional recording studio and I recorded for the very first time professionally at nineteen years old . From that point I was focused on my craft and perfecting it. I was very intrested at that time on how to learn how to mix and engineer as well that way I can do it whenever and wherever I wanted at my own leisure . So I got a computer a microphone and other studio equipment and started my career with every year learning more and more and working on perfecting my sound .
Don’t give up . It’s a long road but practice makes perfect . Take your time you can’t rush greatness. Don’t worry about recording hundreds of tracks let it be quality over quantity . Last but not least try to be as original as possible . And be real. If you never lived it don’t talk about it it’s not your place to its up to another artist to tell there own story not for you to..
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I do play live but it comes with a price . Music is work not a hobby to me so I request to get payed for my time unless it’s a benefit or for a cause then I will donate myself .
Best punchline you ever wrote?
“Your a dead man walking like your Bernie lomax” … if you saw the move weekend at Bernie’s you would understand it lol.
