Big Jade is just further proof that everything is bigger in Texas. With not many A-list stars from Beaumont, she is creating a path of her own. Her raw bars and creativity show in more ways than one. As a bisexual single mother, it’s clear that she is unique in her own right. Jade has always been a hustler. She still does hair when she is not burning down the mic in a studio. The fast-rising rapper teamed up with fellow artists from the lone star state on her debut project, Pressure. Erica Banks, OMB Bloodbath, and club legend BeatKing all came to help create some smashes on this album.
Big Jade proves her confidence is the main ingredient in her recipe for success. If she keeps up with her lyrical prowess and charisma, she will soon be at the top of the game. Tracks like “Up Now” show why she is not to be messed with. For me, a great rapper has to be a little cocky. Jade knows she’s the shit, and that is why her album is so enjoyable. Big Jade is the type of rapper you can listen to all day. Our latest interview talked about her unique perspective, new album, and Texas roots.
