Hip Hop hybrid Bigstat is a cross between underground hip hop and mainstream. Stat was born and raised in Connecticut, his passion as an emcee started when his mother was murdered when Stat was 12 years old. Stat could've easily chosen the destructive road instead, he chose to pick up a pen and inspire others with his story. People connect with Stat's music on an emotional level no matter what socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, or age. Stat's debut album Heart of a Lion takes you through his journey from hitting rock bottom to gaining respect from his idols through networking day and night. Stat's goal is to bring real hip hop back with a true meaning. After all, that's what inspired him through his difficult times. Stat has toured with hip hop legends such as Redman, Method man, Ghostface Killah, D Block and Slaughterhouse. Join the movement! #RealLifeRap.
