You know how picky I am when it comes to hip-hop, so when I tell you Connecticut based emcee Big Stat's Heart of a Lion is one of the best hip-hop albums of the year so far, you can take it to the bank that it's a dope release. The latest single off of the album is the extremely heartfelt "Adriana's Song," which is all about Big Stat becoming a father, and how everything from the news of his wife's pregnancy, to raising his daughter, has changed him.
The video features footage, and pictures, of Big Stat and Adriana throughout the past three years, from sonogram, to playing in the leaves, to the arrival of her little brother. You'd have to have a heart made out of stone not to like this one.
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.
