Instagram: @big406300k, @rippflamez Big 40 is a young rapper from Cleveland who has been absolutely killing it lately. His song "Motivation" is as catchy as they come, and he recruited an OG in Ripp Flamez to hop on and stamp the record with his flows. The pair was down in Miami while the entire music industry was attending Rolling Loud, and they took advantage of the scenery to shoot the official video for the track. Big 40 recently did an interview w/ Hip Hop Enquirer where he discusses the influence behind this track and his career: his mother.
Meet Curtis Jones, professionally known as “Big40.” When the phone conversation first started, I was thinking he’s going to reminisce on a situation involving a large, 40oz of booze but the 17-year-old break-out star isn’t hipped to inebriation just yet. The Cleveland native raps about his experiences in the rough areas of his neighborhood. He references himself to be a sponge with a lot going on around him, as a typical kid, it caused him to pick up on everything happening. Everyone has their vices, some people may be using smoking or even binge eating as an escape but Big40 uses music to mask his reality.
