Hailing from Beaumont, TX, rising star Big Jade made a name for herself by releasing a series of videos online that showcased her unapologetically, real lyrics and rhyming ability. Growing up only an hour and some change from the big city, Houston, and only a couple hours from major music capital, Austin, she was influenced by her mother’s battle-rapping days and turned it into a rapidly-growing career in music. Her skill, confidence, and delivery captured fans all over the world and quickly led to several viral video moments, including the fan-fave freestyle remix to “RPM” by Ludacris. Initially working with Beat King, Big Jade accumulated over 50,000 TikTok videos to her huge feature on “Rodeo,” which became a mega-viral single by Houston native, Lah Pat, racking up over 100,000 videos being made and millions of views on TikTok. In a climate where female artists are completely dominating hip-hop, and with co-signs from NLE Choppa, P (Quality Control), Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, and reposts from Khelani and Erykah Badu to name a few, Big Jade is a refreshing talent with something to say, and we should be listening.
