Ben Hunter AKA Big Ben started rapping at 12 years old. He had to record a song for his elementary music class. He didn't think much about it then. But in 7th grade, him and some friends started going to this class called Hip Hop 101 there is where he recorded his first studio song. His mother didn't want him to make music, so he gave up on it. Until December 2008. That is when he started freestyling all the time, in his head, out loud, didn't matter. He started taking it seriously at the age of 14. Summer of 2010, Ben fell in love with music and it became his passion. From that moment, it's been nothing but going up.
