Born in the city of El Paso, Texas Big Perk and his family (Mom and Grand Parents) later moved and stayed in the small city called Odessa, Texas. Most people would think the size of the city would not be a place of troubles. This is not the case with Odessa, Texas also known as Over Dose / ODT. The fact is Odessa is actually one of the worst cities in Texas due to the high crime rate from gangs, drugs, and lack of positive thing to do for young adults. Growing up with no father in the home Big Perk’s Mom tried her best to provide early out. However, as we all know a woman no matter how much she tries cannot raise a man.
This lack of a positive male figure really hurt Big Perk while growing up and soon had him looking for love from his peers. Most of the people Big Perk would hang around where older than him. As Big Perk started to develop a love for Hip Hop music he also found himself in the streets all the time. In High school, Big Perk started to branch away from the gangs in attempts to invest in his music career.
Big Perk started to build a platform to distribute drugs in his school and soon others. Just after Big Perk turned 18 he was shot in a drive-by shooting by rival gang members. The walked away with 5 bullet wounds from this event. Big Perk heard the voice of God and also heard the music. Big Perk thought it was confirmation for him to pursue a career in music. Big Perk later shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the music world like Rick Ross, Bobby V, Llyod, Bone Thugs -N- Harmony, Ludacris, Baby Bash, Kumbia Kings, Frankie J, Pitbull, Lil Rob, Trae, SPM, DMX, Rich Boy, Naughty by Nature, Warren G, 112, H-Town, Lil Keke, Paul Wall, Gorilla Zo, Scarface, Bun B, Cash Money Records, and many more.
One day Big Perk hit a real low and the world crept into his life and he hit rock bottom. Tired of everything going on Perk was ready to kill himself. GOD THEN SENT HELP, Big Perk met a Pastor and from there GOD MOVED IN A MIGHTY WAY. After leaving music alone for almost 2 years Big Perk had a conversation with his Pastor and the man of God ask him a pivotal question. “Perk anyone ever tell you that you’re like Paul in the bible?” Before Perk could answer another question followed “Do you know who Paul was before he was Paul?” Perk was shown how God used the chef of all sinners to correct the church, write most of the new testament, and help bring the gospel to the gentiles. So with this new understanding that God can save and use anybody helped shape Big Perk to be used to minister with Hip Hop Music.
