I met Big Stat back in 2004. Since then I’ve written about him a number of times, regularly had him as a guest on my old radio show, and we have become good friends. Because of this I’ve had the opportunity to see him grow as an artist, from his Hushh days up to today. His latest single, “Pain,” is his best, and most gut wrenchingly personal, piece of work yet. It’s a song that takes a close up look at domestic violence with his mother’s own murder as the centerpiece. There’s a lot to take in here, and with lines like “it eats me up inside, I can’t remember your voice,” Big Stat is clearly wearing his heart on his sleeve for all to see. This might be the most powerful song you hear all year.

B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
