Q: What drew you to music?
I believe that stems from my household as a child, my parents loved music anything from Marvin Gaye, Elton John, Queen, Selena, Barry white, Queensryche, and Iron Maiden. That mixed with me being a kid finding my own music taste and hanging with older kids who freestyled growing up in Texas that’s all we knew. Rappers like Lil flip, and Lil Keke, fat pat, z-ro, trae, and k- rino that’s what they did and it wasn’t nowadays stuff or like the stuff in New York these guys would do whole mixtapes freestyling and one guy would freestyle for 8 minutes that and me Being so shy at the time when I started I liked the thrill of being the center of it and telling a story.
Q: Who inspired you?
I’m inspired by many outlets, but if I narrow it down to top 3 I’m going to say, first Z-ro for his pain in his early music he gave his pain to us and when I heard that I connected because of my own life the similarities were just crazy. Second I’m going to say Tupac, he was like the big brother I didn’t have him being so gritty but inspiring was like telling me about the harsh realities but also saying you can be more. And last would be Biggie, his ability to story tell and ha e everything sound so smooth was masterful.
Q: What is your creative process?
Normally I create by either being at work like when I’m at work and I dread the job I start coming up with melodies and rhymes then once that’s established I take it into the gym and between cardio and weights I start writing my bars and if I ever get stuck or lose inspiration I go for drives in nice ass neighborhoods so I can tell myself that if I want one of these houses I have to create.
Q: Will you collaborate with others?
Yes, no doubt I’m not full of myself by any means. The only thing is if I don’t feel a song I won’t do it.
Q: How many songs do you have out?
I have two out now but the amount of content I have lined up is crazy
Q: What is your goal in life and what is your goal in music?
Musically I just want to share my story and if they relate and it helps I’m happy. In life, I want to make sure my family is all well.
Q: Is your family musical?
Um, they were my father played the guitar he had a band in his teenage days. But it was more rock-like. And my mom played the flute in high school and when I was born it then just became their expanded music taste.
Q: I noticed you don’t curse much is there any reason why?
I do curse in some songs don’t get me wrong, but I limit it just because I feel more proud to be lyrical then put an f word everywhere.
Q: So your 26 and you decided music, why music? Why not get into school?
well I’m actually in college I study psychology. My goal is to help underprivileged youth understand it’s ok to vent that’s where my focus will be. As young people grow up in harsher areas we aren’t given a path to talk with doctors like that. As young men, we are told to toughen up so I aim to definitely bring about a platform for young men to release that negativity they often hold inside.
Q: So you go by Big Dream how did you get that name?
One of my coworkers jokingly said it after I told him I was thinking about doing music.
Q: So you said you were from Texas, about where at?
I’m from the San Antonio area.
Q: Where can listeners hear your music?
on literally every streaming platform just search Big Dream.
Q: What makes you so unique?
hip hop and rap has become so filled with hype beats and autotune and gimmicky antics I believe I stand out because I’m just being myself telling my story and I believe I deliver it in a way that is sentimental and allows you to listen. You won’t just be hype for 3 minutes and then the next song it’s like the man I can relate.
