THICK LIFE on Soundcloud !!
October 22, 2013
After spending most of 2013 touring the country, playing music venues, nightclubs, backyard bbq’s, basement art parties, and posting a ton of pics on Instagram…..BIG DIPPER is ready to share his new mixtape project with the internet. :-)
The 12 track free download features an introduction from his Momma, catchy singles with poppy hooks, rap tracks, and killer beats. Don’t sleep on features from Chicago’s Roy Kinsey, Brooklyn based female rapper Lil’ T of Hand Job Academy, Baltimore’s club queen TT The Artist, and self-proclaimed GIANT, Will Sheridan. Vocals from SNG on numerous tracks add a slickness that makes THICK LIFE a polished and unified offering.
Independently released and executive produced by Dipper himself, THICK LIFE thrusts Big Dipper’s sonic presence to the next level. Clearly maturing as a lyricist, BD explores sexuality and rap game confidence in a fiercely humorous and wickedly impressive way.
THICK LIFE will be accompanied with lots of new visuals, including last week’s video release of DICK HANG LOW. Shot in Portland, OR, the video features cherry blossoms, Voodoo Donuts, and a picture in picture slow motion Dipper that captures the playful nature of the track; all while embracing its raunchy lyrics. Next up is the release of the much anticipated music video for the mixtape’s second single, SKANK, created with BD’s frequent collaborator Tobin Del Cuore. This high production, high concept, high fashion video (due out mid-November) was funded by another successful kickstarter campaign and is heavily influenced by the narrative of the 1990 film Pretty Woman. The video is sexy, sophisticated, sleek…very #ThickLife….(clearly it’s also a hashtag).
Big Dipper is a Chicago-born Brooklyn-transplant bear of a rapper. His crazy antics, exciting live shows, and infectious music make him the independent rap act to watch closely this year. Named one of Hip Hop’s Queer Pioneers by DETAILS magazine in 2012, he has been profiled by VICE , Red Eye Chicago, the Huffington Post, and countless other blogs and online publications. With nearly 500K views on his youtube channel, he is best known for his music videos for Drip Drop and Meat Quotient and he made quite a splash with a sexy shower video tribute to Ciara’s Body Party.
