A city kid from Chicago’s west side named Big Bounce, always thought of his music as a reflection of himself and the people, places he has came from. This is his story, that he’s openly willing to share.
Big Bounce released the single “Had Nun” and this powerful song begins with a melodic introduction. The beat was emotional, to help convey the sentiments of the artist. Big Bounce becomes vulnerable in his delivery, and expresses his reality through the music. He shares a part of his story, connecting with his listener, and stripping down the “Fake rapper” image. Big Bounce is an authentic rapper who knows how to move his listener with his truth. The passion presented in “Had Nun” was so strongly showcased, it was absolutely amazing to hear. Big Bounce allows his listener to become as one with the song, intertwining the story with the music. You place yourself in the same setting, and emotions Big Bounce is feeling for himself. This was a nice way to build chemistry between the artist and listener, a true skill and craft I believe most artists should aim to achieve.
