“Really everyone who's making a living doing music,” writes Big Flame. “Successful artists influence me. Young Thug, Future, 2 Chains, Drake, and Yo Gotti are the artists of this era that I look to for influence.”

Big Flame Thrower's name hints at his style of hip hop production. “I Be Working” brings big, big sound and intelligent, even inspiring lyrics. Flame raps from the heart with drum and bass to back him in a solid, sonic wall. Synth melody lines are clever and surprising, unique and effective. While it's a positive, empowering hip hop track, the sound of “...Working” is ominous and dark.

“I Be Working” is the first single from his upcoming project, “Real Talk Vol II.”  which will also be an  up close and personal project.

“My album will tell my story,” Flame writes. “How I live, how I came from nothing and against all odds – I still do this. It will display pain, raw talent, strong sexual music, and also songs that's thought provoking, just something a little different from the normal. It will give you a look into my life.”

Big Flame Thrower broke into the scene with his debut solo project, “My Time to Shine.” He has been called by fans and friends by several names: Black Sheep, World Wide, and simply, “Rap-A-Lot.” He has been freestyle rapping since 12. He has shared the stage with popular Louisiana artists such as Lil Josh & Lil Earnest(Jigga Juice), Da G.A.N.G, Sam I Am, U.N.L.V, Outlaw Music Group, 5th Ward Weebie, Webbie, Asia Sky, Juvenile,  Lil Boosie, Hot Boy Ronald, U.T.P, BDMG, Mr. Magic (No Limit), Lava House Records, and more. He has opened for acts as well-known as the Party Boys, B.G., Huey, Canibus, and U.G.K. Records.

The rapper is a humble man but one with plenty of ambition.

“Though very few people outside of Louisiana and Mississippi have heard of Big Flame Thrower,” he says, “make no mistake that my drive, persistence, humility, and talent will take me just where I'm destined to go – to stardom.”“I Be Working” by Big Flame Thrower is available online worldwide at over 700 digital music stores.

Born and raised in a small town of Winterville, North Carolina Ronnie Run is a well-known rapper with a lot of streets credit. "I want to put North Carolina on the map and show people that there is talent around the state." Growing up around the Pitt County area was just plain and real for Ronnie. "Where I'm from was nothing different from your New York or LA. Living in the South; the pace is slow and the hard work is there." Starting out as a DJ; Ronnie knew or thought this was something he wanted to do. After the Dj thing fell through; "I had a backup plan and it was rapping." Ronnie's influences are God, my daughter Jocelyn, my family, The Sugar Hill Gang, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, 2Pac, Notorious BIG, Rakim, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, KRS-One, LL Cool J, Run DMC, Beastie Boys, Jay-Z and the list goes on and on. "I remember the first time I heard "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugar Hill Gang and I knew from that point; rapping was something I wanted to do." It was during a school test when Ronnie wrote his 1st rap song. After that I called my cousin Big Buji and he told me that he was putting beats together so we got in the studio and did my first EP "Lyrical Masta;" it became a street classic. Two of those songs hit the radio airwaves "Ghetto Stress FT. Black Chyna" and "North Kack for Real." With the success of these songs, I thought it was time for me to try a new producer.
