Big Chillin is a record label based in Jackson that features 9 artists. This collective is Led by Rapper/Manager Lazy Boy, and includes rappers Frank Lee, BeatsbyN8, Summer Hill, Dolo, Heath, JoJo, and Caldeezi. They also have groups Zoot Squad and Goat Gang under the label as well. dThey have music to party to, smoke to, chill to and they have caught the attention of some major artists including Tha Joker, who is featured on their track “Lord Knows”. The melodically, turnt up tunes produced by the group are perfect for any occasion where the crowd needs a boost in energy.
I got the chance to talk with group manager/member Lazy Boy to learn more about the crew:
Me: Where are you all from?
LB: Majority of the crew is from Jackson, Mississippi born and raised with the exception of Lazyboy, who is from New York, and Frank Lee from Chicago.
Me: How did the group start?
LB: We were all friends for the most part before we started doing music together. However, Heath and JoJo (ZootSquad) joined the group later after linking up at a show. We always loved music and had the tools to create our own.. so that’s what we did.
Me: What inspires you all to make music?
LB: I‘d be lying if I didn’t say Money played a huge role in why we decided to take things to this level, but also the love for music inspired us to create our own sound.
Me: What do ya’ll hope to achieve with your music?
LB: We just want our music to be heard.
Me: What are some projects that you all have already released and what can we expect in the future?
LB: We are working currently working on our Group Compilation Mixtape titled Suburbia.. Which will probably drop later this fall. Lazyboy, Caldeezzi and Heath are also working on solo projects at the moment.
Ed. Note: Big Chillin also has a mixtape out currently entitled “Young and Learning” that is available for download at http://indy.livemixtapes.com/download/24055/big-chillin-young-and-learning.html
Me: Have ya’ll done any shows? What’s your favorite venue?
LB: We’ve done a a few shows in Jackson and Starkville.. Hals and Mal’s was pretty cool.
Me: How do you all connect with your fans?
LB: We connect with our supporters mainly via the internet. Hit us up on twitter @Bczsgg, Instragram @WebigChillin or you can go to BigChillin.com and find our latest songs.
