Enjoy the music.

Born and raised in South-Lebanon where the most profound battle for freedom has been inspiring generations across this planet. Big-A- learned how to become a researcher in his early school years and spent his childhood playing basketball and reflecting on peace & war at the rocky beach of SOOR, his coastal Mediterranean hometown. He then moved to the ’States in the summer of ’01 to peruse an NBA career! It didn’t take him long to acknowledge that his love for music would eventually become the new focal point of his life... Met Jasen at work- Jasen introduced him to Dante- Dante took him to the shows where he met Zhao-ski (a solo MC/producer who’s Big -A-’s mentor/partner/brother). Zhao, known for keeping an ear to the streets, gave Big -A- the much needed opportunity to get in the studio.It’s that -A- style, rugged & intricate to please true HipHop heads and universal to appeal to any man or woman with a genuine cause. Big -A-’s team is pretty much made of your favourite MCs/musicians. Comin soon to a grimy hood near YOU... ---pe-A-ce---
