Though he got his start in 1998 as a member of a Billboard charting rap group called
Suthern Klick, Big Nod has been a solo recording artist for over eight years, proving
his staying power. His latest album, GRIND MODE, personifies his mission to achieve
greatness as an MC and reap monetarily in the rap game. “I’m always in grind mode.
I’m always trying to think of ways to get some money and make myself successful,” the
Albany, GA native says. Delivering a mixture of rhyme styles accented by his warm,
southern cadence, he reminds listeners of Kanye West’s lyrical dexterity and wordplay,
and MJG’s rawness.
In 2000, MCA/Universal dropped Suthern Klick and kept Field Mob on the label.
Big Nod and another member of Suthern Klick, Ole-E (now his label-mate on Dirty
South Entertainment) kept writing and producing music. Cooking up a formula of club
tracks and good ol’ bass-dipping car music that people love, Big Nod began to build a
heavy impact in the South and Midwest on mixtapes. He was also featured on Trillville
and Lil’ Scrappy’s, “Diamonds in My Pinky Ring” and Field Mob’s, “Hey Shawty.”
Today, Big Nod shows no sign of stopping. Working with a collage of esteemed industry
professionals such as songwriter, G. La Beaud (who penned songs for Diane Warren,
Mary J. Blige, The O’Jays and Gerald LeVert), beatmakers Sherm and Skeet; and
producers Uncle Jamz and The La Beaud Boys, Big Nod expects the album GRIND MODE to be
his best work ever. It features the hit single, “Top Model” produced by Blak & L. Wattz, and his personal anthem, “I’ll Never Change,” produced by T.C. The release is due October 2010 on Dirty South Entertainment.
