Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

VA producer Biggz signed a joint publishing venture with BeatStars and SONY/ATV publishing.

Born on May 2, 1988 in Baltimore, Maryland, Brian “Biggz” Booth was determined to develop his creative abilities from his early childhood, and winning the “Best Drawing Award” from the Maryland Institute of Art at just 7 years old cemented his love for the arts and made his first commercial on the reasons young students should learn art, showing his ability to draw and paint. By the age of 12, Biggz moved to Virginia Beach, VA where he founded and developed a rap group, “The Street Team” where he led the creation of instrumentals and sound design. In no time the group began touring and performing, landing their first record deal with the Hood Platinum Record Label. After studying Audio Engineering and the Business of Music under Hip Hop pioneers, Double XL and CEO P, Biggz signed the artists from the rap group (Awax, Dallis, T. Butts, & Don Rashawn) to his own ”Major Movement'' label. They opened for legendary acts such as Jim Jones, Big Country Kanx, Mulage, and OJ Da Juiceman. After a 5 year run, Biggz dissolved the label to open a studio in Virginia Beach, "Black Vinyl Recordings" where he recorded major artists such as Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, Lil Boosie, Earthgang, and Moneybagg Yo, to name a few. This entrepreneurial endeavor allowed his audio engineering career to skyrocket which landed him a full-time position at Thomas Crown Recording Studios owned by super-producer, Timbaland. At the age of 25, Brian began rapping again, and started a rap group called “World Order”. They opened for artists such as Trae da Truth, Little Debbie, Stylez P, Slaughter House, Ginuwine, King Los, Twista, Mystical, Scarface, Kirko Bangz, Stitches and Slim Jesus. Brian currently owns the “Prime Records” record label within the DNA Recording Studio in Virginia Beach, VA. The idea of the name “Prime Records” derived from the definition: “of the best quality: excellent”, exemplifying the sound quality he consistently provides for his clients. In May of 2020, Biggz’s engineering work with EarthGang and J.I.D. caught the attention of BeatStars, the premiere online marketplace for beat makers and has since entered a joint publishing venture with BeatStars and SONY/ATV publishing.

Biggz’s future goals include providing guidance to developing artists through the

competitive music business. He is also focused on perfecting his craft as a multitalented producer-engineer and elevating the Prime Records brand through his numerous business ventures.
