C: What’s up Sin? Can you tell us where are you from and how did you get that name?
Well originally my name was Mr. Sinister…but over time that name got outdated so I shortened it to sin that’s what all my freinds called me and still call me to this day…then a homie suggested I go by BIG SIN…I ended with BIG S.I.N. Which stands for Southern Ill N***a because my flow is not your typical southern spit
C: Alright, so what made you want to become a rapper?
At first I didn’t like hip-hop…it was a New York thing so being from rural NC I couldn’t relate to it…I grew up on soul music…I was always drawn to the characters like The Fat Boys…Biz Markie…Redman…Busta Rhymes…they stood out to me…when I first heard The Humpty Dance by Digital Underground I knew I wanted in
C: Who’s been the biggest influence in your life and why?
My late great grandmother…she taught me to always treat people the way you want to be treated and to have self respect…trust God…work hard and to never give up…My late stepfather was also a big influence on my life taught me about manners and respect and how to use common sense…I’m blessed to have had great people in my life
C: If you could record a song with any rapper dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Scarface without a question…DMX is another one…they don’t mislead people and they give it to you RAW without trying to cater to the industry or radio…I love that Real Nigga Rap
C: And how do you feel about the current state of hip hop in the Carolinas?
I think the Carolina’s have some of the most talented artist in the world…most of them your not even seeing or hearing…Hell JCole was the only MC to went platinum last year and he’s signed with arguably the greatest artist in hip hop history…and he from right here in NC
C: What projects are you currently working on?
I got Southern Gentleman 2 about to drop and it’s a heatrock…something you can ride to…love me or hate me you won’t be able to deny this one.
C: And where can fans go to hear more about you and stay connected?
