In the music industry, as well as through many other businesses, it is well known that some talk the talk while others walk the walk. DJ Bigga Rankin is one of the most powerful record/artist breakers in the business. He is CEO/founder of one of the most influential DJ crews in the country, Cool Running DJs. His promotions expertise has been utilized at such powerhouse labels as Young Jeezy’s imprint CTE, Atlantic Records, Def Jam and Interscope. His RNR mixtape series has also helped ignite the careers of Plies, Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, B.O.B and Gucci Mane. Although he is a modest man and bragging is just not something he does.
With more than 20 years and counting under his belt, Bigga Rankin is the pioneer of the southern hip-hop movement in Florida.
Keeping his ear to the street, Bigga handpicked some of the music industry’s hottest artists before they came famous via the Diamond Awards. Set in Jacksonville, artists that have graced the stage and have been recipients of Diamond Awards have gone on to mega stardom. The year 2015 will be monumental in Bigga’s journey as he plans to release his #BiggaIzBetta documentary at the 15th annual Diamond Awards, but this Tuesday we release the first record off the soundtrack “Who Gone Check Me” ft. artist P-Nyce.
