If there’s one figure who looms large over the local hip-hop scene, it’s Big Fella. Obviously his size is part of it — he is in fact a big fella — and his TV cooking show The Hustlin’ Gourmet is one of the greatest things to ever come across your local cable-access channel. But more than anything it’s his constant support and encouragement for up-and-coming artists that makes him a sizable figure. Nobody puts more effort into helping the youngsters find their way through this maze of a music scene. And so it’s apropos that Big’s birthday party would feature some of the finest of Nashville hip-hop’s new wave. From Scene favorites like Gummy Soul, Ducko McFli and The Radikalz to recent transplants like Ware and Forte Bowie, it’s going to be a stellar night of new-school talent.
