Straight from the “Hit Recording Capital of the World” Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Ydrick Cobb (aka “Big Paper COBB”) was intrigued by Hip Hop thru BETs Rap City. Raised in the “Gate 6” community of Leighton, Alabama (home of Percy Sledge – “When a Man Loves a Woman”) Big Paper Cobb was surrounded by hustlers and self made men. Staying true to his roots, COBB developed a rap style derived from artists such as: Master P, 2Pac, BIG, Ice Cube and Young Jeezy.
Taking notes from each, COBB soon formed the independent company Big Paper Entertainment; a label that COBB says “..will give young artists a chance and put out good quality music consistently.”
Armed with a hard street album titled “I Had 2 Wait My Turn” and new ep “The Good Son”, Big Paper COBB is laying a strong foundation to bring his following from the underground to the mainstream. Stay tuned….
