Bigfoot

Beginning of this year we showed u guys already an awesome release by the emcee that is called…

BIGFOOT. Here we brought u the review bout his crazy “invazion-12”. Well, few weeks ago I stumbled across another record of this man and from what I know this was his last release on vinyl. The twelve I mean is from 2000 and was on his own Swampcity Records label (distributed by Echo Intl.). it contains (my personal fav) “the quest” – containing a well-known sample that’s finely played with a piano. On the b-side you have “bx confidentials” where Bigfoot is reppin the Bronx with support from COVER/C.O.D.! the last song is named “altered states” and that woman’s voice-sample in this tune should be well-known too (Jedi Mind Tricks used this too in the approx. same time period)…

If u wanna know more and already listen to Foot’s 1st track that should come on his new 2008 album “the 5 boro nightmare” (btw: mad props for that cover artwork) then hit his myspace. And for those that don’t wanna go there I copied the introduction text from his site here:
Christopher t. Barr aka "BIGFOOT" was born and raised in the bronx. This rap artist has a lot to put on and bring to the table. He first stepped on the scene in the summer of 97’ on the independent label, ZESTLAND RECORDS. songs-"CANNOT ESCAPE" and "MULTIPLE STAB WOUNDS", which received major underground play nation wide on stations such as: WPBX,WIUS,WBCR,WQHT(new,york’s hot 97),88 HIP-HOP(internet radio),WXCI,WRAS and also charted CMJ. What really put him on the map, was his conceptual style of rap and unforgettable lyric lese imagery, which help forge and create the legend of" BIGFOOT". While touring to cities like Philadelphia with "CELLAR DWELLERS, RAMPAGE(the last boyscout).He caught the attention of some major rap artist across the country and became the opening for such artists as: SADAT-X, BOOTCAMP CLICK, and X-ZIBIT. Out in Oakland, SONZ OF MAN (wu tang) GENIUS,GZA, in spring valley open up for LITTLE KIM&JUNIOR MAFIA and the infamous BIGGIE SMALLS at the how can i be down out in Miami,Florida. During the years in the underground he has since created a name and following. Still striving for a throne of his own. He started his own label "SWAMPCITYMUSIC". Certainly, all you undergrounds heads have collected MILITARY KOMBAT feat. SHABAAM SAHDEEQ, BRING IT, INVASION,MID-EVIL, LEGACY OF RAGE,FOOTS WORLD,BX-CONFIDENTIAL and ALTERED STATE just to name a few!!. They all have street promotion and independent distributors such as: BUDS,LANDSPEED, FAT BEATS(L.A&AMSTERDAM),DANCE FLOOR RECORDS, thanks to them they made sure that everybody from D.J’S to all the mom’s & pop’s store have a BIGFOOT records. With all these accomplishments it has landed him a major record deal with TOMMYBOY records in 1998, with the release of "HEAVY METAL ARTIST" b/w "THREE MINUTES TO DETONATE". That him performing at the local and under ground clubs from NYC to LOS ANGELES and appearing on the BLAZE BATTEL TOUR. That charted heavy rotation at all the underground college radio stations also featured on the" BLACK MASK " sound track starring "JET-LI" he first U.S> appearance with MEL GIBSON and DANNY GLOVER in LETHAL WEAPON (4). He is currently working on the album titled "THE FIVE BOROUGH NIGHTMARE" hip-hop heads will see why he is here and here to stay .......

Bigfoot reminds me of Fulgore from the Nintendo/Rare video game Killer Instinct.
