Cedar Rapids, IA
Big Bang is the group who is up next from the midwest, and the first major hip hop act from Iowa. DaChaMan (Spongebob Ready), Tone Da Boss (Polo), Zaya (R&B Singer), Tuff Laun (Leggo) and Amtrak are probably 5 of the most versatile artist you'll come across, but are really just college kids who love to party and have fun. In 2009 they released a gimmick track which was made to mock other gimmick songs called Spongebob Ready which caught the attention of the whole industry. After putting it in the hands of a few dj's it started receiving play in clubs, radio stations, and placed on multiple mixtapes. This sprung demand for a video which went on to get over 100,000+ online views along with a dance, and months down the line even a remix from Young Money's own Lil Chuckee. Big Bang was since dubbed one of the top 100 independent artist of 2009 by djtruufmixtapes.yolasite.com. They've collaborated with other underground artist like Mistah F.A.B., legendary artist such as Craig G., to multiplatinum artist such as Young Buck. Big Bang's been featured in multipe magazines, major websites (hotnewhiphop.com, allhiphop.com, hiphopdx.com, etc.). They've accumalted over 2.5 million downloads/plays in the last few months and due to popular demand released their first official mixtape with Dj Ill Will and Dj Woogie, self-titled "We Are Big Bang" along with their first official video shot in New York to their new single off the mixtape "Polo".
