This week we talked to a true rap music veteran Bigg Quint from the acclaimed San Francisco group UDI. You can find Bigg Quint’s BTA profile here.
Please introduce yourself.
Its ya boy Bigg Quint from the legendary group UDI (Under Da Influence).
How did you get into hip-hop?
I went to a Run DMC concert and knew I wanted to rock a crowd.
Where do you get the inspiration for your songs?
My inspiration is life experience and whatever I feel to the beat.
Any tips for aspiring rap artists?
Invest in yourself and don’t worry about what’s hot or the radio is playing.
What is the best thing about being an artist from San Francisco?
Putting out music in the 90’s behind 11/5, Cold World Hustlers, RBL, IMP and Get Low Playas was an honor to be from Frisco. I love the movement that new artist such as Foots The Beast, 9 milli, Yung Lotto and Money Tut is putting out. They keep me going.
Do you find differences in the audiences in different countries?
What I find different in other countries is the crowd. Everybody is not doing music, overseas really have rap music fans. FOREAL FOREAL.
If you could choose, which artist would you like to see live? Dead or alive.
Died would be Pac and Eazy. Alive would be Scarface, Ice Cube with me and my artists opening up. Hahahaaha!
Tell us about your regular hang out? Have you ever had a gig there?
These days and times I hang with my family and a few close partnas I call bruh bruhs. We did a few shows and got a record release listening plus performance party for 1 of my business bruh bruhs names Rayge. His album is something to have in or on yo device FOSHO.
Which artist would you like to see being interview by BTA? Which one question would you ask them?
I would like to get my bruh Rayge an interview so the world can hear his story. 1 question I would ask him is how and why did he start in this business.
Are you working on new music?
Yes Sir got a new solo coming called PREMEDITATED. RAYGE about to drop his album call 4 A Reason, Jody Jo got an album coming call Often Restless and another Metropolis Music Presents album. We staying busy giving it to the public. WHOYAWIT! haha
