Big League / Bio

Forged on Detroit's east side Big League is captained together by Veezy V. Vercetti and Negativa-D. Two individuals with incredible ability, a very unique mentality and a great sense of style. Surrounded by the allure of Motown's musical history, Detroit's notorious rap scene, and character building experiences it is no surprise as to what influenced the League's creation. Living anything but ordinary inner-city lifestyles, inspiration for lyrical material came like second nature. With hip-hop being a major factor in Detroit, showcases came easy and their clean, clear, unique, yet vicious sound was easily embraced. A combination of a calming friendly demeanor transcending an urban inner-city vibe created a smooth synergy between the crowd and artist. The shock factor of sound to appearance comparison was more than enough to ignite a small buzz around the bars and clubs Big League had played, grabbing the attention of an Emcee who offered a weekly headline at The Fire/Water Lounge on Detroit's east side. Through the Fire/Water, Big League hooked up with a few entrepreneurs showcasing unsigned artists in and around the greater Detroit area in larger venues now giving them the opportunity to open for national acts. It was not long after that Ray Hill from Don Diva magazine heard about the group's talent and extended an invitation to perform at the 2010 NBA Allstar Game after party in Dallas, TX which included an acute interview. By fall of 2010 Big League was well known throughout the Detroit hip-hop scene and rooted themselves in Palm Springs, CA and joined with NBI management. NBI landed the League successful back to back shows on the Palm Springs strip immediately. These shows caught the interest of a local radio DJ who suggested playing a song he particularly liked on his weekly Sunday show. The song was played and continued to be requested on the show for 5 consecutive weeks. The radio play branched Big League out to shows in the Inland Empire and Los Angeles area which involved opening up for A list names such as Dipset. Recently, BIg League has been very busy between performances in Miami, New York, California, and Michigan as well as two nominations at the 2012 Underground Music Awards in Time Square. The League continues to move crowds and collect fans in the process. Big League is rapidly approaching national notoriety.
