You can Listen to Big Greg’s Eclectic New Album on July 16th
If you are a fan of dynamic sounds and creative lyrics, Big Greg’s debut album, “#G4” is releasing on July 16th. As an award-winning artist since 2015, he has shown his range and genre-less skills that set him apart from other artists. Also known as the Punch Line Kid, the North Carolina native is doing very big things.
His following and opportunities have grown significantly since he started out in 2010. At the time he was in college and was releasing singles, rapping, and performing wherever the city and campus events would let him. “I wanted to capture the essence of growth and my experience in this new album, because a lot of things have happened over the last ten years that reflect that,” Big Greg says.
This new milestone of an album is the beginning of a new chapter with so many things to look forward to. “I have always been without a set genre since I started making music, so I feel that this album showcases that range really well,” he says. His passion is what helps him go after what he wants and what he’s passionate about.
An example of this range is on the track, “Rockstar,” the heavy metal inspired beat, gives the Punch Line Kid the room to talk his talk and show that he’s comfortable being in the spotlight and that he deserves to be there. Every artist needs to let you know who they are and why they’re the best at what they do, he’s having fun on this track, and you can tell, the flow is fire, the bars are lit, this is the type of track you listen to on your way to an event to make sure your confidence is on a thousand when you get there.
His debut album is going to be released on July 16th, perfect timing for those crafted summer playlists. “#G4” is his most diverse sound yet, with hip hop and rap, rock, and other sounds to create a unique experience. Focused on the themes of introspection matched with catchy hooks, the album is mature and even heavy when it comes to content and his experience with love and loss, struggle and growth, nostalgia, and moving on. Big Greg is a heavy hitter when it comes to the emotional side of his album and the reflection. He knows where he is going and what he wants and he’s going to keep working until he gets it.
During Big Greg’s time in college, he began to draw many comparisons to Drake because he could easily create catchy lyrics in addition to singing on tracks. His first major single, “Like A Stripper”, received regional acclaim around the south, which led to many tours. Greg’s first award came in 2015 as he won the Hip Hop artist of the year at the Charlotte Music Awards International (CMAI). Later that year, riding off his new single and performance from the CMAI, Big Greg sealed a Hollywood Music in Media (HMMA) nomination, for his new hit single “Like A Stripper”. In 2016, Greg nabbed the Matador Green Energy Drink theme song contest, which plays his theme song and all of their functions and fully sponsors his performance events anytime he performs around the country. That same year (2016), his follow up single “You Can Have It All” won the Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) for song of the year in Hollywood, California. His 3rd single “Oh No” did really well in the south and managed to get FM play which is why he has big expectations for his 4th single “Hands Free” featuring label mate and social media icon LaTruth was released on March 26, 2021. His upcoming EP titled “#G4” which is set to release on July 16, 2021.
Authenticity is a big force that Big Greg goes after and radiates at the same time. “As an artist you can get caught up in a lot of things that want to change you and have you become something else, but I didn’t want to do that. I wanted to lead by example and stay authentic.”
