Bio by Wiley Koepp
Big Paul E (Atlanta, GA)
Straight out the belly of the beast, and that's the Georgia Pen, fires of my life off the streets now i'm back again. Stylistically, Big Paul E lives and breathes the Dirty South (he was born in San Antonio and now calls Atlanta home). But at the same time, spending his childhood spent in Flint, Michigan broadened his musical background. Among his biggest influences, Paul lists KRS One, Rakin, Big Daddy Kane, Ice Cube, Tupac, and The Westside Connection.Big Paul E has an intensely personal motivation behind his music. He has served in the military, but also gotten into gang-related life so deep that it led to incarceration. While in jail, Big Paul E began to refocus his life on music, God, and living respectably to set a positive example for others. Today, Paul owns PER-minute Solution Music Productions and is a recording engineer at Reynolds Recording & Premier Productions. But his true love is creating music. With his songs "I.O.U." and "The Dirty South" having reached Reverbnation's Top 10, Big Paul E's passion appears to be paying off.
