Rapper Big NE is one of the hardest and smoothest rappers out of East Texas. His thugging and hustling mentality comes from growing up in one of East Texas most deadliest town that's known for drugs and gun play. Not having much growing up as a young child was another challenge, but things began moving in a positive direction when Big NE immersed himself in football. It looked like it was his ticket into college, but failing to make scores kept him from playing college football. He knew he was smart so he enrolled at Lamar University and did a semester but was later mess tracked by hooking up with old friends. He turned to rapping and later hooked up with Pimp Que. His big break through was when he joined YNR Entertainment (a local independent label) and released Hood Prospects. People around the community started realizing that he was serious and later he gained the respect he deserved. Big NE is currently working on his anticipated album which will be distributed across the country.
