The hip hop performer known as Big Flame Thrower has released his latest rap single, “I Be Working.” The track has been proudly published on the Flamed Up Records independent music label without the control of the corporate music industry. Booming with bass and flexing with healthy aggression, “I Be Working” by Big Flame Thrower proves that hip hop in 2016 is stronger than ever.
New Orleans’ Big Flame Thrower cites as main artistic influences Jay-Z, D.M.X, Soulja Slim, Jadakiss, the Notorious BIG, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent and Birdman.
“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.” It’s also a personal track.
“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.” He has been freestyle rapping since 12. He has shared the stage with popular Louisiana artists such as Lil Josh & Lil Earnest, Sam I Am, U.N.L.V, Outlaw Music Group, 5th Ward Weebie, Webbie, Asia Sky, 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 beginning 19 July 2016.
