IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?

BIG SCUWOP: I have only been rapping since October 2015, so I’m very new to the game you can say. My father and uncle use to make music back in the 90’s, so they were kind of an inspiration to me. I use to write little raps back in middle school and make songs with my cousins and friends from school. I never thought to take it serious because I was never able to have time out my day to record. I was busy road running and selling drugs. Once I entered 12th grade I kept thinking about taking it serious, but I was doubting myself thinking people wouldn’t listen to my music. Once I officially graduated from high school, I stopped caring about what people thought and just did my own thing and started dropping songs. My first official single I dropped was called “Sauce on Me”. Once it dropped, it got a great response from people and had almost 15k plays on soundcloud in the first two weeks before it got deleted by them. Due to the overwhelming response it got, I decided to ask my friend to film a music video for it. The video ended up premiering on Worldstar Hiphop, and it received even more love from my audience.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?

BIG SCUWOP: I want to record and release my own music because I feel like I have a lot to say that people need to hear. When I’m making music it just puts me in my vibe. It makes me feel free of stress because I don’t really have anyone to talk to when I’m feeling low. So I express my feelings through my music. I know everybody will love my music, because I have different styles that the elderly and youth can relate to0.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?

BIG SCUWOP: I’m myself. I’m A1. I’m 100 percent. I’m not trying to sound like anyone else except myself. I’m not worried about fame. I just want some money. I’m a boss, that’s the difference between me and everyone else. People just want to rap for fame, f**k fame. I have family getting evicted and little siblings and nephews to feed. I just want some money so that I can make sure they are straight. So everything I rap about is coming from the heart, which will make people feel me even more.
