This stands as an inspiration to not just his audiences but also for other upcoming musicians who often shy away from realizing their dreams and aspirations.
Hip hop artist BigJohn hails Plies from big Gates Records as his biggest inspiration. Although he always felt a sense of belongingness with music, it was not until 2010 that he started writing his content.

A vocal and musical delivery like no other, his music is eccentric and often imbibes trains of contemporary pop. The artist himself is fond of experiments as he constantly allows his soundscape to breathe and grow through the years of cultural and creative evolution. He is also a fond guitarist whose canvas is open to all kinds of music. His exposure also indirectly influences his soundscape and makes it stand out in creative glory.
The upcoming album ‘Neva Too Late’ is set to add another quote of creative excellence to his work. His other album, ‘We Goin Live’ also created a lot of buzz and audience engagement. He has always acknowledged the support of his audience that helped him stay humble and grounded during the course of his journey as an artist. He is also a family man who is always maintaining the work-life balance with the right ingredients. All his songs are textured with emotional themes and musical subtleties that help his audiences to relate to them on a deeper level of empathy and understanding.

BigJohn an American Hip-Hop Artist who was born in Columbus, Ohio. I moved to Florida when I was approximately 14.
Where are you from?
I am from the west side of Columbus, Ohio. Born at Mount Carmel Hospital on April 17 th , 1984.
When did you start making music?
I started this long journey in the Music Industry back in 2010 when I released my very first song called “Livin Dat Life”, Inspired by Big Gates Records artist Plies.
How do you describe your music?
I would describe my music as “Real True To Life” music. I do not focus on one topic when I am writing songs, my goal has always to been reach people all around the world with lyrics that people can relate to in their past and current situations.
Favorite moment from your career?
My favorite moment in the music industry would have to be when I shot the music video for the song called “We Goin Live”. I had so much support from the people in Polk County and directly from the city I lived in Waverly, Florida.
Who is your biggest musical inspiration?
My biggest musical inspiration now and always is Big Gates Records artist Plies. When he first came out, I would listen to his music constantly every day. I really love his delivery, lyrical realness and his presentation. He is the reason I wanted to start writing music back in 2010.
What is your producing software?
Over the years I have mainly used Mixcraft but I have always had the pleasure of working with Pro Tools on the mac operating system. My go to is still Mixcraft as it has a user friendly UI and it can produce some really good sounding vocals.
What other things do you do besides making music?
When I am not making music, I am working, playing video games on the Xbox, spending time with family and living the best life.
What is your favorite track of all time?
I am assuming this question is referring to BigJohn music so I will have to say my favorite track that I have written would be “Can’t Fill Your Shoes”. The song has such deep meaning for me as I wrote it as a tribute to my father who passed away.
What is your best-producing tip?
If you are gonna record in a professional studio, then if at all possible, try to record your self at home before jumping in the booth. People wanna hear the emotion in your voice and tone changes through- out the song you are producing.
Why did you start making music?
I really loved how Big Gates Records artist Plies was able to reach me mentally and emotionally with songs such as “One Day”, “Rich Folk” and “On my D*ck”. I wanted to portray my thoughts and feelings to the world so I too could make a difference in somebody’s life. For a lot of people around the world, music can help if you are feeling depressed, going through hard times or just need to zone out from the rest of the world.
What are your goals for the future?
In the future, I would like to do more shows and release more music that people can relate to. Every day that passes I want to be better and more knowledgeable than the previous day. I never want to stand still but with every move that I make I want it to be progress.
What advice could you give to young artists/producers/dj’s?
Make the world feel the tunes deep down in their soul. One of the many great qualities that make us human is we have feelings and through music we can speak directly to the hearts and minds of people.

I can not thank my fans enough for the continued support over the years. I would not be where I am at now in the music industry if it was not for my people standing by me and supporting me in the complex and competitive industry. I am very blessed to have all of my fans and I can not thank them enough.
