Bigg Boo is a Self-Made Staple in LA: Behind the Boards Interview

From waking up every morning to work at DirecTV to investing in his first recording studio in Downtown Los Angeles, Bigg Boo has turned his vision into reality. Trusting in his abilities, the Compton made producer worked endless nights pursuing his craft, and over time, the hard work began to pay off. For the last three years, his studios have been involved in some of the city’s most critical songs, and now, he’s opened up a new location in San Pedro.

When we caught up with Bigg Boo, he emphasized that he feels he’s often left out of the conversation when it comes to LA’s current forefathers. “As far as the new LA wave, I’m one of the founders, like RonRon,” he said. “I’ve always been in the background, but always had an impact. When I started getting back on the beats, it started putting me upfront more. But still, I feel like I’m underrated and overlooked. I’ve been a part of this whole wave, orchestrated major hits in my studio. I’ve been the guy who believed in these artists.”
