The Break Presents: Al Great

Standout: “Generate”

Also Check Out: “Pray I Make It”

And: “The Take Intro”

Name: Al Great

Age: 30

Reppin’: Baltimore, MD (East Side)

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Jay-Z, Kanye West, Beanie Sigel and Skillz.

I started rapping: Right after I heard ED O.G. and The Bulldogs “Be A Father” in third grade when I was eight years old.

My standout records and/or moments have been: “Take This From Me” off of my debut album The Heist, which debuted at #72 on the hip-hop charts on iTunes. That’s my biggest record and moment, so far.

I’m gonna change the game by: Bringing the working man, Mr. 9-5, to the forefront of the game.

My goal in hip-hop is: To tell the story of the “regular” guy with a job and bills to pay, not everybody sells drugs or is a millionaire. No disrespect to them, but I hear that story from 90% of the rappers today. Its time to show life from a different angle.

I’d like to work with: Kanye, Pharrell, DJ Premier, Janelle Monae, Big Boi, Dom Kennedy, just to name a few.

I’m gonna be the next: I’m not gonna be the “NEXT” anything…i will be the first and only Al Great.
