He made a name for himself in the Detroit underground after sharing stages with KRS ONE, Invincible and One Be Lo to name a few.

His profile was raised after landing several interviews and features with Al Akhbar Newspaper, The Arab American News, SPIN Magazine, Yasour and so on.

BIG A : Lebanese Power in Detroit !



Big A always carries himself as a rapper with a unifying message and is all about making strong steps towards the progress of that unity.

Big A was born and raised in South Lebanon yet his message resonates louder than the sounds of war.

He brings the raw experiences of a wounded country that refused to give up and lets you be the judge of it all.

He released the album Conscious Gangsta in the summer of 2008 and is currently working on new music projects.

The style is so “Conscious”: It will make listeners change the way they think and so “Gangsta”: It will make listeners fight for their true freedom.

BIG A was recently introduced as the newest member of the famous Lebanese Hip Hop Movement "961 Underground".

Make Sure you check out Big A's site @ http://mcbiga.com/

An interview with Big A is coming @ you real soon for now I leave you with this Video Shout from BIG A to REVOLT:
