DJ Next Rates Artists From’s The Break

Three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), a new artist is featured on’s The Break. An ideal destination for fans, artists, and industry members, The Break showcases up and coming talent, giving a brief introduction on the artist or group, and highlighting some of their standout music. Each month, industry insiders will team with XXL to rate and comment on the submissions.

For the month of May, Amalgam Digital’s CEO DJ Next—who will serve as one of three judges—checked out the section to see what yesterday’s talent (Big Head) had to offer. Check out his comments below.

Big Head
Overall: XL

Big Head “Back Home” (to see more from Big Head, click here)

This is cool. He could definitely use some stronger visuals. I’m wondering how far he could take his “Everybody Luvs Head” campaign. I want to like him but something is missing. I’m not blown away yet, but that’s not to say he doesn’t have room to grow. Big Head is somebody I would keep on my radar. I want to see what he does in the next year or so.

    Every single one of these I read, dude says more or less the exact same thing. If a motherfucker sucks, say he fucking sucks. If he is dope, say he is dope. Why are dudes always trying to walk some invisible line? You have said that every artist so far “has potential” without actually saying that. Duh… Have a REAL opinion and speak it monkey.
