Welcome back to BuzzMusic Big Runts! It’s such a pleasure to be catching up with you! You’ve had an impressive year, to say the least. What accomplishment are you most proud of thus far?
Honestly what we are both proudest of is the Big Runts Mob. That’s us and everyone involved with our movement, we are the underestimated, the unique, misfits, the ones you stare at, the last ones to be picked, the ones who Love being different .. we grow as a family daily, and we Love showing Love, motivating and inspiring. We are more than Music, we are family. The Big Runts Mob makes this all worth it.
How did you meet one another and form Big Runts?
We actually met on the set of PIT BOSS a reality tv show on Animal Planet based on rescuing and promoting the Pitbull breed. We became friends, and later discovered we were both making music independently. A mutual friend got us in the studio and we ended up making music together, but as a larger group (usually 4/5 people on a song). After a couple of songs everyone kept telling us we should do something just us two, we stuck out with talent and of course our looks.
With many years of making music, we would have to imagine your sound has changed and evolved with time. How would you say your music now compares to the music you curated when you first started out in the music industry?
I feel as if before we would strictly make rap music. We were just focused on spitting bars. But as the years went on we learned how to create songs. When I say that I mean catchy hooks, melodies, things like that but still provide bars with it.
We absolutely love your latest release! What was the writing/recording process like for “Twerk Til Yo Back Hurt”?
We simply wanted to make a song that would make the girls run to the dance floor when they hear the Dj play it. A fun song that brings the naughty side out of a girl.
You seem to be an artist that puts more thought into their lyrics than most. What can you tell us about the lyrical depth within your EP “Underestimated Overachievers”?
All I can simply say is we naturally come with the bars. That’s how we create. Bars are what make it what it is. Metaphors are a must. We love to put some actual thinking in our music.
Thank you so much for talking with us about your new singles and creative process. Can you describe how your performances feel? Do you enjoy live shows, or do you prefer the actual songwriting process? Also, any live shows coming up in the near future?
Our performances are always high energy and good vibes. Whether there are 5 people in the audience or in 1000. We like to involve the crowd in what we do. We love to give them experience.
