1. He Is A Tennessee Native
Tennessee is a state with a long musical history. Although there was once a time when that history mainly included blues and country and blues music, rap has become a big part of the state as well. Big30, who was born and raised in Memphis, is proud to be a part of that.
2. He Has Had Some Legal Issues
Things may be going well for BIG30 now, but there was once a time when things weren’t looking so good. He’s had some run-ins with the law over the years including an incident in 2020 when he was arrested in Alabama. According to reports, BIG30 was found with a loaded gun and drugs.
3. He Has Big Goals For Himself
Even though Big30’s career is just getting started, he’s already thinking about what he sees for himself in the future. When asked about what he hopes to achieve next, Big30 told XXL, “Grammy winner. I’ma be the next platinum-selling artist or something like that. Millionaire to $10 million.”
4. He Had A Little Beef With Gucci Mane
Rap may not technically be a sport, but a lot of people in the industry treat it like one. Needless to say, things can get pretty competitive which can result in tense situations between rappers. In the summer of 2020, Big30 found himself in one of those situations with Gucci Mane. Apparently, Gucci felt like Big30 was clout chasing for posting a photo that made it look like they were friends when Gucci insisted they’d only met once. Fortunately, the situation was quickly deaded and the two appeared on a song together.
5. He Is A Private Person
Being an entertainer may seem like a fun and exciting career, but lots of celebrities have expressed that it’s actually very invasive. While some people don’t mind sharing their lives and constantly being in the public eye, Big30 appears to be a private person who enjoys keeping his personal life to himself.
6. He Loves Cars
Music is definitely Big30’s main focus at the moment, but it’s definitely not the only thing he loves. When asked about things he enjoys outside of music, Big30 told XXL, “I really like driving a lot.

8. A Friend Inspired Him To Start Rapping
Big30 didn’t grow up wanting to be a rapper, and he also never planned on leaving Tennessee. However, all of that changed when he realized there was a chance he could do something big. This encouragement came from a close friend who suggested that he take rap seriously.
9. He Loves Fashion
