About BigLouCMD

Hopewell Junction, NY

Who is Big Lou? I suppose the best way to answer that question is with a series of other question

1. Who is the only artist in the Underground Music Awards History to win an unprecedented 4 Underground Music Awards including Best artist, Best Lyricist. Most original Artist and get nominated a record 6 times
2. How many unsigned artists are sought out by a legendary artist like Busta Rhymes to jump on one of the hottest street bangers of 2007 “The Shining
3. Who is the last virtually unknown artist from a tiny city like Camden, NJ that is only 8 Square miles to be featured on some of the hottest street collaborations of 2007 and 2008 with artists like Joell Ortiz, Papoose, Sheek Louch, Cuban Link, and Stacee Adams, Juvenile, & Jeru the Damaj
4. How often do you see an artist without the backing of a major label make music that is so powerful that the top hip Hop websites such as,, and are forced to have his music in regular rotation.
5. Name an artist whose stage performances are so captivating that it caught the attention of one of Hip Hop’s Legendary pioneers in DJ Kay Slay
6. Let’s take it to another spectrum – Who really is Big Lou? How can an artist who forces everyone from the streets to the Hip Hop community to continuously find them selves asking this question even after an eye popping 180,000 plus plays of his 2 debut videos on You-Tube

I’m sure these accolades may be impressive to many, but perhaps the most interesting way to guage an artist’s impact on the rap game could be as simple as hackers going out of their way to infiltrate Big Lou’s Myspace page not once but TWICE over the past year to delete over 50,000 fans and well over a million plays. To some this may be extremely frustrating, but as Big Lou puts it “I guess I’ve arrived, it appears that my fan base has quadrupled and the haters have doubled. I guess that makes me relevant”

So who is Big Lou? Let’s take it back

Known in the hood as "The Spanish Frank White" Big Lou was born i
Camden N.J.; One of the most dangerous cities in America. Big Lou wa
raised by a single mother (Maria Rodriquez) and grew up with
brothers and 3 sisters. At the age of 14 Big Lou started growing fond of music. He began writing songs on the struggles of his hood. Before his music career would blossom he became a product of the streets. He started selling drugs. Although he was living the fast life, he never lost his love for music. He was determined to make a better way and started investing his money into buying studio equipment. Little by little he spent more time in the lab than on the streets. After successfully finishing his first Independent album he gave up the street life and focused on selling his music. Amazingly Big Lou sold 3,500 units in a city that's only 8 square miles, creating a buzz that traveled to Philly and parts of Jersey City fast. As Big Lou's success kept growing He decided to start his own Independent label called LOST CITY RECORDS. He began booking his own shows and opened up for acts such as Freeway, Ms Jade, Fat Joe, MobbDeep, KRS One, Mista Cheeks, Papoose, Remy Ma, Jae Millz, Busta Rhymes, D-Block, Saigon and many others. He also performed at over 10 Spanish Day Parades and had Latin's comparing him to the lat, great Big Pun. Taking it a step further Big Lou invested his CD money into doing a charity event for the local schools in his neighborhood which he called LOST CITY 4 the KIDS. In 2006 Big Lou caught the attention of one of Hip Hop’s Legendary DJ’s and Pioneer Kay Slay. After see Big Lou wow the crowds at several shows, Kay Slay signed Big Lou to his Streetsweepers label; the same label that launched the careers of world renowned artist like Papoose and Saigon
