Big Solo has been laying hits all year. In August, the DMV native and 3ohBlack collaborator released a music video for his song Back At It, a celebratory "first day out" song after his release from prison. The visual is flushed with expensive cars, fat racks of cash, and iced out chains, proving that Solo is still thriving.
The song Who You Know follows this theme, thriving. Big Solo dares to ask us "Who you know get money like this?" Flexing his $30K Cartier watch, the song has a familiar twanging synth, one that would be home in a Bay-Area cut, or more recently in Detroit's thriving rap scene. Which is why Big Solo got the Godfather of Scam-Rap and Detroit contemporary, Teejayx6 to lay down a verse. Teejay's verse is hard and timeless, he raps about bullets giving third degree burns and going so fast he "can't even hit the brakes."
From the Artist: "I was wearing a $30K Cartier watch and was feeling myself. When you are in that mood, this is the type of record you get. It's literally an account of my day to day life. When I first heard the record it instantly reminded me of Detroit and who better than Teejayx6 to help take things to the next level."
