Get to know Big Salute

North Carolina bred rapper Big Salute has a point to prove not only for his city of Albemarle, but also to himself. Determinded to let the world know that he’s more than his circumstances. We must acknowledge the 50 million Tik-Tok views and 12 million streams on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal combined. Big Salute is in order for the rookie coming out of the Carolinas with nearly 500k views on his latest single “Ballin” ft. Sauxe Paxk on YouTube. A prominent football star like his fellow Albemarne natives Lee and Denico Autry, Martinus Crump attended Guilford College. Guilford a college in Greensboro, NC where he obtained an athletic scholarship. After a few semesters in school the Just Ready artist was placed in a compromising position where rap became not only intentional but also meaningful. He was forced to leave the books behind and put all his focus on his rap career. In 2008 following the death of his cousin Salute allowed his hip-hop ambitions to fall to the side. He re-emerged on the scene in 2012 as Big Salute looking to take the music industry serious in remembrance of his late cousin. As the newest signee of Street Capital Entertainment, he likes to describe his style of music as a lifestyle that mirrors the struggle. As in any other small city where the option of Ballin is slim Big Salute decided it will forever be Loyalty over Love.
