Hip-Hop and Rap Star Big Hoop Takes Us through Intriguing Phases of a Relationship, Delivered from His Own Personal Lens with His Latest EP “More than Love.”

Hailing from Bakersfield, CA, Big Hoop is much more than just any other hip-hop artist or rapper; his relentless dedication to innovation, artistic excellence, emotional depth, authenticity, and breaking down genre barriers has earned him a standout reputation among his fans and peers. The future looks incredibly great for this first-class emcee who continues to defy genre constraints and boundaries, pushing limits and challenging the status quo with his unique arrangements. If you are looking for hip-hop music that is memorable and emotionally resonant, buckle up and enjoy this ride with Big Hoop as your captain!

Big Hoop returns with a six-track EP dubbed “More Than Love,” which follows his own love story of evolution and growth from his old self. Each track seamlessly transitions into the next, capturing the various stages of the relationship without losing the cohesiveness of the album as a whole.

Showcasing sharp lyrical claws over captivating beats, the first two jams, “Girls Stay Trippin” and “Ex Commute,” capture the initial stages of Big Hoop meeting a girl and wanting to know more about her to establish a connection. The depth of lyricism is magnificently supplemented by the crafty execution of the music. “Girls Stay Trippin” has an infectious tone thanks to the catchy hooks and memorable verses, and the second jam is guaranteed to leave a lasting imprint on the heart and soul of its listener purely for its haunting appeal. In both tracks, his panache on the mic remains undefeated.

That guitar intro in “Too Good” takes a listener to heaven and back in an instant, setting a mellow tone for the jam and healing the soul in equal measure. The ensuing hip-hop beat features an upbeat tempo, and on the mic, Big Hoop delivers expressively of wanting to take things to the next level, albeit with a cautious tone that leaves room for disappointment. This is more like him giving her assurance as she navigates the intricacies of getting over her ex-lover as well as her own insecurities. Big Hoop’s seamless flows capture the true power of hip-hop and rap music to tell a relatable story and engage the listener.

“Fairytales” also features a stunning guitar-flavored intro that sets the right tone for the jam. Here, Big Hoop ups the tempo and heat both melodically and emotionally with raw and honest lyrics that are about him wanting the same assurance he has given. He paints vivid pictures of someone who is willing to invest his own feelings if he feels he will get the same back.

“Home” features a mellow hip-hop beat that warms itself over to its listener right from the opening notes. Big Hoop showcases a vulnerable side and speaks his mind in the most emotive way. What makes this jam stand out is that it feels as though Big Hoop is speaking to his heart as much as the other person. As you can already tell from the way the album is going, he’s about to take a big step, and he needs to be sure. Hence the emotional depth underscored by his raw verses.

The last jam “For You” marks the end of this relationship stage, with a seemingly committed vow to follow. Big Hoop’s penmanship is showcased via the relatable rhymes and captivating chorus that he delivers in a sing-song manner, showcasing his versatility not only as a rapper but also as a singer. This is a refreshing confirmation that Big Hoop is indeed willing to take the next step and be the lady’s avatar, and he does so without missing a beat!

Raw, honest, memorable, relatable, and with deep emotional resonance, it is with such a full heart that I hereby recommend to you this sonic beauty that shines a shimmering light on hip-hop and rap and wipes off the negative stereotypes that the genre has always been painted by. Enjoy!
