Much like a massive gator erupting suddenly from the dark waters of a north Florida swamp, the raw, explosive energy of rapper Big Bud is awesome to behold. Moreover, with the release of his hot new album and tireless road shows, he's bursting onto the Hip-hop music scene as a force to be reckoned with. The aptly named 'Big Bud', who is over six feet tall and weighs over three hundred pounds; is known for whipping his audiences up into a near frenzy with his ultra high-energy stage performances and memorable songs, such as his hot single, "Ay Boy".
Having begun his career in hometown, Gainesville Florida (home o' the UF Gators and site of one of the hottest club scenes in the southeast), Bud's raw energy performances, pull-no-punches rap lyrics and unique mix of old and new school Hip-hop quickly garnered him a huge local following. Taking his performances on the road, the artist began packing in audiences by the hundreds and then soon by the thousands. His fan base quickly expanded throughout Florida and soon spread to Georgia and Louisiana. Discovering that his audiences increasingly knew the lyrics to his songs by memory, the artist figured it was time to cut a CD. His independently produced debut album, "In Bud We Trust" quickly sold over 5000 copies via show distribution alone. A record deal with Small Wurld Records soon followed and now the Album's special Edition is being made available online.
Along with his experiences as a headliner, Big Bud has also opened for numerous name artists including the Big Tymers, Juvenile, Lil Boosie, Lil' Wayne, Master P, Mystikal, T.I., Trick Daddy, Trina, UTP and Webbie. Say's Big Bud about his future... "I'm lookin' to break out into the big time now, an I ain't gon' stop 'til I reach the top!" Adds Small Wurld Records CEO, Lee E. Gladden, Jr, "that's right, and big things gonna happen with Big Bud in Small Wurld.
