Dark skinned Drake. Chicago’s Kendrick Lamar. Either way the Chicago lyricist who is an all freestyle artist, recording everything in one take, is a gem to the industry on his own. Bigga$tate has been hard at work staking his claim at a piece of the top. “Bigga$tate” the artist has only been in the game for a few years now but his moves are as fresh as his freestyles.
