His sound is the perfect storm of Southern grit and grandeur – like the fierce flow of the Mississippi and the calm it leaves in its wake.
Amada Records & “DAYUMMMM”: The Genesis
Amada Records recognized the goldmine that is MrBigOle and didn’t hesitate to bring him into their fold in 2021. With “DAYUMMMM,” BigOle didn’t just introduce himself to the world; he made a declaration. This was hip-hop that was unapologetically Southern, and undeniably BigOle. The world had been introduced, and it was eager for more.
