Interview with BIG AL

First off, this one is on the mind of everybody out there...Who is Big Al?
I'm AL, plain and simple. I'm a person.

What do you have to say to people that say you have a strange almost creepy image?
Everybody has an opinion. I just keep to myself alot and don't say to much so some people that I meet may get the wrong idea about me.

What would you say your style is?
I like to have meaning behind what I'm saying. I very often just say something to say it!.

Why are you so low-key?
Because that's the way I choose to be.

What do you like most about being a Rapper?
I ain't really no rapper, I just show up on Rap CD's every now and then.

How long have you been doing rap music/rapping?
I used to fool around back in Junior High but that ended after Junior High.

How did you get started?
Started in what?

Rapping?
I went to school with em' and we were cool so it just kinda happened.

Who, Moss and Chuck?
Yep.

You also produce, do you like that more than rapping?
Yeah, cause producing is more blue-collar, even though now a days you gotsome producers talking over they tracks and wanting to be superstars, but overall its' just low-key you can keep a lot more of your "normal" life, a lotta people ain't in your business. I like that.

What discs are you currently listening to?
I listen to alot of old stuff. Prince, Parliament, Joe Sample, Bootsy Collins, Ohio Players, Geto Boys, A little bit of rock, I'm very open when it comes to music. That old stuff from the 70's was the best though

What are some of your other interests besides rap?
Right now my focus is on producing and just trying to get my dough right..

What's different about being on an Independent Label?
It's more of a family atmosphere, not as suit and tie-ey. I have learned alot about Music in the three years that I've been working with Self-Made.

What are your plans for this upcoming year?
Stay healthy.

What do you feel is the hardest part of being in the music business?
I don't really know, I dont' really see myself as being "in it" all like that..

Is it hard for people to see you as a rapper AND a business man?
I'm not sure.
