Big 'Boss' E Plans Summer Release
Unlike many other rappers these days, E was never subjected to being influenced by only his immediate surroundings. Growing up in Brooklyn(in a Jamaican & Puerto Rican fused household) as a child, he heard West Coast legend Snoop Dogg on the radio and subsequently realized his life's dream. He completely submerged himself in the music, working hard at his craft developing a hardcore East Coast style.
After his family made the decision to move down south to Houston, Big "Boss" E was introduced to a southern style of rap by the sound of H-Town legend Pimp C. Immediately embracing this culture shift, his lyrical style was then matched with southern dance beats, hence making him unstoppable in the Houston underground music scene gaining local exposure through shows and a word of mouth buzz.
In 2009, after teaming up with legendary mixtape DJ The Empire for "Grape Jelly Hoe", E sets his eyes on the prize. Not only to launch his debut album, Grape Jelly, but for it to be one of the classics. As Big E says, "Grape Jelly is here to stay!"
The Boss is here. And he's ready to make his mark.
