Big Dan recalls his earliest outlet as a child was writing, recording and performing rap songs about his own rough childhood growing up as a child to Mexican immigrants who migrated to the inner city projects of Oakland, California in the mid 1980’s. “I speak on the many day to day struggles and realities of life that many people can relate to” says the charismatic 25 year old. When not on stage Big Dan can be found on the block working as a case manager for Oakland’s at risk teenagers, a testimonial speaker at youth centers, detention facilities and academic institutions all over the country and preparing him for the next chapter in his already extensive career. Big Dan’s highly anticipated solo release album ALL OR NONE is out now. The project is a candid look at the commonalities in our struggles and for Big Dan, a chance to reveal all of him.
