"Featured artist: Big Shane - Louisiana’s Next Up!"

Featured artist: Big Shane - Louisiana’s Next Up!


Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Big Shane.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Big Shane: Mainly from growing up in a music loving atmosphere. Dad use to be a radio station DJ, alot of cousins were freestyling in the streets and building names for themselves. So as i got older, payed more attention and learned the recording/biz process, i felt it was time for me to try it out and see what the streets would think about my story, because at the time i had alot to speak on from daily situations. Built a name and buzz around the local schools, started killing the talent shows and open mics, then from there my name started picking up online and various cities that i never been too & i havent stopped or slowed down since.

Even when they doubt your dreams & goals, keep pushing to make them believe & see it was possible.

- Big Shane


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes. Just within in the last 2-3 years, i performed in over 5-6 states & 3 different countries, including the U.S.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


All of them are my best so i’ll make up one just for you! .. ”I Spit sick, like i never floss / need false teeth.. My presence like a present / i stay with trees & wRAP beats
- Big Shane
What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I recently dropped my street album ”Mixed Emotions” which is out now on itunes, and other online music & blog sites. Also i have my own clothing line which was just released, OverNightGang Clothing Co., so be sure to check that out also at ONGClothing.BigCartel.com

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I would, but the paperwork would have to be like one of those deals they were giving in the 80s & 90s haha. I like what alot of indie lables are doing nowadays, they’re EATING!

Any last words?

Most def.! I gotta shout out my people!! Everybody who’s been rocking with me and supporting me since day one, i salute! Also my city, HUGE shouts to DeRidder Louisiana, small town but we making big moves. There’s alot of talent around my city, i respect everybody’s hustle & vision, so salute to everyone in the D thats grindin, its love!! Shouts to lake charles & leesville also, they been showing major love to me man. All the homies in the streets who dont get online to read stuff like this, all the ones sick & shut in or even incarcerated, i do music for people like that. Im just showing people its REAL out here, dont get caught up in what media is pulling you into, and what alot of these rappers are telling you to do, but they dont even do it. Make your own lane, and create your own thoughts, nothing wrong with being different. Last but never least, thank you GOD!

"Illuminati 2G caught up with one of the rising stars coming out of Louisiana, Big Shane, for a exclusive interview. We discuss his upcoming mixtape, album plans, and much more so check it out."

Illuminati 2G is here with Big Shane how's it going?

Everything's good man, just getting ready to blast off for '09.. Getting my CTC team situated and coming out hard with these mixtapes!

Tell me a little bit about how you got your start in hip hop and some of your musical influences out there.

I used to always rap other artist music and verses, acting like they were mine.. Going to school spitting it, and getting lots of props. I got serious with my music when I started getting notice from my own music and verses. Started up my CTC team (Cut Tha Check Ent.) In '07.. Since then I can't complain about anything! My buzz is impacting, my name is everywhere, and my fan base is crazy!!

If you could best describe your style how would you and why?

I'm a metaphoric artist, I got some of the coldest and craziest punchlines.. Sometimes I don't even try and use them shits haha. But a lot of people tell me my voice is different, and is unique.. So I guess I'm a one of a kind artist, you tell me!

What is your thoughts on the music scene in Louisiana where you are from?

Man, the music scene is Louisiana is kinda hot right now. Its a lot of talent in different cities. A lot of people here are stuck on the jigg and ratchet movement, which is real cool.. But that only be poppin in Louisiana, Texas, Miss, etc.. Don't get me wrong, its a lot of niggas fighting for the crown right now.. Trill Ent holding it down right now, they the new Cash Money! My nigga Lil Cali, that boy HOT!! He on my single "Dope Boy Fresh".. He also recently made the cover of the Ozone (Oct. '08). Also, Vicious is making some noise too.. Its a lot of people out here eating, a lot of unsigned hype to. But I'm from a SMALL town called DeRidder (337).. Nobody from my city made it out major yet, so I'm trying to make that happen so the rest of the city can come out and eat too.. I'm trying to get my Jeezy on! They don't call me Flowicane Katrina for nothing, think about it, ask about me!

Tell me a little bit about your new single You Don't Want That with Ne-Yo.

Aww man, that joint right there is sick!! That's gonna be featured on one of my upcoming projects, I have so many in the works, I'm still working on my lineups! That joint got over 5k plays & views within the first 3 days of uploading it on the myspace page. I did a couple eblast, and the feedback was all positive. That record is gonna be a good look for my name! Shout out to my homie E, you know how we do it!! He help make that record possible..

Tell me about your mixtape getting set to drop entitled The Whole Boot Behind Me. Release dates, features, production.

All I can say is "BIG".. That project is gonna be an all original mixtape, promoted real heavily all throughout the state of Louisiana. Its gonna feature some of the hottest artist out of the Boot, and some major features also.. I plan on releasing it on my b-day (Apr. 7th).. But it might hit the streets before then!

Do you have a full length LP scheduled after the mixtape?

I have my album features and everything together, I'm thinking about dropping the album this year.. But then again, I'm loving this mixtape money! The albums coming real soon though, there's no title or release date yet though..

Do you have any upcoming shows or tour dates you want to let the people know about?

Yeah, I'm actually preparing my promo tour for "The Whole Boot Behind Me".. That's gonna be all throughout Louisiana. Then I plan on putting together my team tour (CTC Ent.).. That's gonna be nationwide, I have some sponsors lined up, so that's gonna be in motion real soon!

What is some music that you are bumping in the ride or at the house that you digging at the moment?

Right now.. I been bumping my homie Lil Cali's new album "Warning Shots" that shit there is banging! I been jamming USDA's artist, Roccett. I'm actually affiliated with his label, so I gotta support and rep! That nigga AR-AB from Philly, he's a monsta! I been bumpin him and Cassidy real strong.. Man I listen to everything.

"Big Shane: is he DeRidder’s budding hip-hop star?"

DERIDDER — Shane Peters is certain fame is within his reach. "I don't think it'll be too long," he said.

The 26-year-old DeRidder native comes off as introverted and quiet upon first meeting. On stage, though, he becomes "Big Shane," an explosive and larger-than-life hip hop artist who can command a crowd with just a microphone.

Manager Ken Jackson said he wouldn't be working with Peters if he didn't think he could make it.

He saw Peters headline at the Springboard Festival in Houston.

"I could tell the seriousness just in his voice when you hear him talk," said Jackson, who added that he served 20 years in the Army and was used to managing people and separating the serious from the lazy.

Jackson got to know Peters after seeing a couple of his Texas shows, but was most impressed with his Springboard Festival performance last month. Originally scheduled to headline the hip-hop night, scheduling mishaps forced him to perform a night later.

Jackson said tall, slim, soft-spoken Peters burst onto the stage and hushed the skeptics.

"A lot of people weren't expecting to see a hip-hop artist on that night so I had to do something crazy," Peters said. "So I jumped out into the crowd and partied with all the fans and just got people on their feet and at the end of the show, they were feeling it."

Those few moments on stage require hours of preparation. Most of his time he spends in his home studio writing new songs, practicing old ones or collaborating on new beats. He also spends his time marketing himself through social media and his YouTube channel Big Shane TV. His time, he said, is rarely spent doing anything but working toward that elusive dream of fame.

Music and DeRidder are as much a part of Big Shane as anything, he said. The town of a little less than 11,000 is a frequent topic in his songs and feature prominently in his music videos. In the music video for "Echoes" Peters raps in front the Beauregard Parish Courthouse, one of the DeRidder's landmarks. In the video for "Venting" Peters sits on a stoop somewhere in DeRidder and tells stories about his upbringing.

Peters said being from a small town, instead of nearby hip-hop powerhouse Houston, only channels his ambition more. - Washington Times (Newspaper)
