We out here!” - Big Lou

About Big Lou

Big Lou has been spreading his Island Hip Hop sound since 2021. If rap music went to the Caribbean and found happiness it would be Big Lou. Originally from St. Maarten (the Caribbean), and now based in Toronto, ON, he combines Caribbean (Sean Paul), African (Fireboy DML), and Latino (Bad Bunny) elements and pulls from other musical influences such as Logic, Dax, and Connor Price.

The single, “Time Witchu” (2023), written and co-produced by Big Lou & Justin Maki, is a groovy, flirty, pop song. “We just wanted to write a song to capture the feeling of wanting to spend time with that special person,” recalls Big Lou. “It was born when we hopped on a Zoom when Justin began playing with his guitar and we discovered the music and a hook soon after.”

Hailed as “The Happy Rapper” by his fans, Big Lou first came to Canada as a student at the age of 15. He began his transformation from living in fear to taking risks after gaining some life experience. This is when his creative juices began to flow and he began a career as a motivational speaker which quickly developed into his musical artistry. “I love to entertain. My goal is to help people face and make their way through their struggles by showing them we all struggle and that we can overcome it, together, says Big Lou. “When we face our fears and rise to the occasion we become bigger and begin to shine like the lights that we are.”
