Big Fil

Tell us everything will need to know about you.
Born in Jacksonville (Duval) Florida, Big Fil is a father, husband and dual artist. I have the gift to sing and rap, and God chose me to be a voice for the streets. I’m very intentional about taking pain from the hood and giving it a platform and then offering the same solution that changed me; that gave me hope. That’s God man.

State your favorite genre of music and your reason.
Hip Hop all day. I grew up on the sounds of Biggie, Nas, Jay-Z, Scarface, DMX. Though I was from the south, these artists grabbed my heart first because of their lyricism. You can hear the knowledge and how intellectual they were when it came to their music. Story tellers. But I got my edge from Southern rappers like Trick Daddy, Ross, Outkast, Goodie Mob. They spoke from a painful place and share the ugliness of our nation. Can’t deny that at all.

Tell us your experience as a musician.
I’ve been blessed as a musician. I have been able to evolve as an artist and still keep the ears of our young people.

Tell us the theme of your song
“Blessed With The Sauce” has a fun theme to it, but at the same time gives you the understanding of where I am as an artist. I want people to know you can speak about the greatness that’s in you and not feel bad about it. It’s OK to humble brag. Just be willing to share the greatness with those around you.

Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform.

My wife has been a blessing and has opened my eyes in more ways than one when it comes to my potential and greatness. My kids make me feel like a million bucks. So now I’m working so they can live like we got a million bucks. They deserve that and more. They are my everything. My team “Worship Over Swag”, my friends and community. All those that have seen me come from the bottom are owed a piece of this. Salute!

Tell us about your future goals.
My future goals consist of continuing to be the best artist I can and creating a brand for myself as an artist. To establish a home for those that are outside the box musically.

Go into detail about your opinion on religion and politics.
I think both are necessary for this world. People thrive off their beliefs more than we realize. It’s the source behind everything we do. Whether it has a negative or positive approach; I think politics is important for those who will lead our nation in the future. We should learn from history. And those who want to become our leaders could just learn from our history, it would change the perception of those in politics.

.

.

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.
I thinks it’s inspiring because it gives room for fans to find truth outside themselves. There is so much more to life than what’s around us. Go find it, this truth is undeniable.

Explain the change you have observed so far in the music industry.
The change I have seen so far in the industry is the platform of social media. It’s great for the artists who feel trapped by the politics of the game. If you grind hard and work; you build your own audience. But this social media also kills the relationship of those who are gate keepers of music (radio, DJ, A&R) and it makes the happen less weighted and more gimmick. But having a great balance of these things is great.

.

.

.

State the artists you cherish most and your reason.

The artists I cherish the most are Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Kirk Franklin. That’s a good mix of who I am. These guys were risk takers and weren’t afraid to be who they are in a world that was always changing around them. They made timeless music.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.
I develop my lyrics by writing what’s going on around me. I’m very observant. So I tell stories in 1st person so when you hear me rap; it might be my brother’s story or my wife’s story or the story of a friend up the block. I speak for those around me.

.

.

.

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.
I enjoy collaborating with others. It brings out the best and challenges you to step out of what you know to do.

.

.

.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the kind of music with genuine message that inspires them.
I think is great to make music YOU love first. I’m doing that; people will feel the love and whether it’s dance music or music with a message I think it will inspire regardless If the artist is in love with it first.

.

.

.

Tell us what you know about copyright.
I know that copyright is a real thing and in 2017 people still feel the need to overlook it. That’s sad.

.

.

.

Discuss the impact of a Performing Right Organization.
It’s a great advantage to join one of these organizations because they provide the artist with resources and knowledge of the business. They educate you on publishing and assist in collecting what’s rightfully yours.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.
Because I’m singer it comes easy sometimes but I don’t always accept the first melody I hear, but it’s a process for me. I let others hear it. I add harmonies and other things; tricks I do.

.

.

.

Go into detail on the recording process of this song.
Honestly this song had other beats before I settled on this one. It was so catchy to me that by the time I recorded it, it was a one take type of song. It was so wavy that it wasn’t hard to put it together the way I wanted.

.

.

.

Discuss your music performance.
My music performance is simple. Connect with those that came out to hear what I had to say… whether it is 10,000 or just 10 people.

.

.

.

Tell us how you will rate yourself as an artist.
I rate myself among the best. Not on level of success but level of impact. I know when I die; a lot of people will come and celebrate my life. For that I am thankful.
