Big B Biography
Las Vegas, Nevada USA-bred Big B -- real name Bryan Mahoney -- has been on the grind working his way up within the underground scene since he emerged as a solo artist in 2004 when he signed with Suburban Noize Records, home of California's Kottonmouth Kings and HED p.e..
Taking a cue from the roots of Punk-Rock, the alt-rapper assembled his first album, "High Class White Trash", which was released in January 2004.
"White Trash Renegade", his sophomore release arrived in March
2005 and he continued to hit the Hip-Hop scene hard in support.

He kicked off the touring cycle for "More To Hate" in style on the first annual Strange Noize Tour along with HED p.e. and Kottonmouth Kings. The tour went on to became one of 2007's biggest concert grossing tours and saw Big B garner even more fans for the white trash renegade's grassroots underground movement.
