Big Hutch Says Tyga Is "A Square Kid From Suburbia Trying To Act Hard"

Exclusive: Big Hutch discusses songs from his "The Big Hit" album, which is scheduled to be released April 1.

Big Hutch says that he wanted to call his forthcoming album The Big Hit because of the way in which it was being released. 

“I had the concept to put out a record just on the fly, like a hit, as if I was contemplating a move and then just attacking the industry, basically," Big Hutch says of his new album, which is scheduled to be released tomorrow (April 1), during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. "I woke up one morning, went to the studio, cut some records and then I decided to just put it out straight to my fans.”

The Above The Law rapper isn’t a fans of some things going on in rap, though. The Pomona, California artist made “Death To The Fake” with rappers who wear skirts in mind. He also had a specific target. 

“What sparked that up was a lot of cats imitating the imagery of what we’ve done already,” says the rapper also known as Cold 187um. "I was going back and forth with the situation of Tyga using 187 and claiming he’s from this area when really he’s from a suburban area and he’s not really from the hood. You have these cats putting out these records and saying how real and true they are. In actuality, they’re really some square kids trying to take advantage of real things that happen in the ghetto and real things that really go down. They’re trying to sell these cats all of this, ‘I’m popping bills. I’m turnt up. I’m this gangster and I’ve got these tattoos and I’m hard,’ and really you’re a square kid from suburbia trying to act hard. I wanted to expose that.” 

As he’s done throughout his career with Above The Law and as a solo artist, Big Hutch also wanted to discuss multiple aspects of the drug game. He does so on The Big Hit cut “Diaries of a Drug Dealer.”

“There are circumstances and things you have to be responsible for when you get caught up on the drug game,” says Big Hutch, who was released from prison in 2006 after serving more than two years on drug conspiracy charges. "What I really wanted to say in 'Diaries of a Drug Dealer’ is that there are many things that can happen. I took risks to make money for people who haven’t really given a shit about me. I also took risks to help people. I’ve also been caught up in it. But at the end of the day, I still believe that if you do good in life, you can be prosperous. But there are situations that when you can get caught up, you’ve gotta deal with yourself.

"I felt bad because I got put in that situation, but I don’t have any regrets for what I’ve done," he continues. "For me, doing a record like that was therapy. On top of that, it’s really to tell you the mind of a drug dealer and what he goes through. Yeah, he hurts. There’s people that do him bad. He’s also caught up, because even though the money is good and the lifestyle is great, when you’re caught up in that cell, you’re going to be praying to God that your family is OK, that people you love are going to be alright and you can make it that next day out of the situation.”

    "Anonymous: Kendrick is pop rap though. In that category, he loses to drake. Ross is gangster rap, which doesn't sell as well as pop rap." First Ross is as about as Gangsta as Miley Sirus and Kendrick doesn't do pop he does what some call real hiphop

    i would say it has harmed him, he should be platinum by now, especially after MTV called him the hottest rapper in the game only to be outsold by some new kid named kendrick." K Dot's a crossover artist. He does songs with girl singers like anna wise that helped attract more people than ross.

    we already know tyga is a suburban kid tryna act hard...back in early 2000's he was on an mtv show, and we saw who he really was

    Shit, y'all little niggas better quit sleeping on tyga...he may make soft records, but dont get it confused...tyga holds it down in the streets. He paid his dues and put in mad work coming up. He runs with the hoovers and a few compton niggas...i heard about him getting a few niggas bodied....his hands skills is vicious too...i seen him fade 3 niggas at the convention center in inglewood

      "Kendrick will never reach six albums or have the impact Ross has had in terms of just his name alone generating either hate or praise." Never reach six albums? Are you psychic or something? Kendrick's name alone is already getting hate or praise, so that part is accomplished.

      Kendrick is 26 and already on album 2, Rick Ross didn't even get his foot in the game until he was like 30 so Kenny is already ahead of him not to mention outsold everything Ross has done.

    Ay Hutch, don't talk down on others like your shit don't stink, I can say you ain't from that walk of life either and real niggas will confirm that, should I remind you of that beatdown on 1991? Should I remind you you can't even go to South Central without at least a hundred niggas backing you up? Should I remind you Suge beat you down with a squeegee at Death Row? LMAO old ass bitter nigga, it ain't no secret that Tyga ain't a real gangsta, just let the youngsta eat and fall the fuck back

I mean you bring up questionable events where Hutch took an L. Bitch-nigga douchebag deluxe you forget! Real niggas don't WIN every battle or brawl they get into but that don't mean they not REAL!!! If taking penitentiary chances isn't REAL then what is? When was the last time your boy Tyga got charged with something & was sent to the PEN? Who can vouch for Tyga's stripes. Now that he's famous, he probably attempted to buy his way in like Lil with the Bloods!

      this isnt ten years ago when your superhero gangster persona sells your records more than your music does its about having people connect with and relate to who you really are and not some made up character thats why drake kendrick and macklemore are where they are

      " his cover was blown with the CO job, but it hasn't harmed him has it?" i would say it has harmed him, he should be platinum by now, especially after MTV called him the hottest rapper in the game only to be outsold by some new kid named kendrick.

    • @what

      It's not the fact that he's fictitious in his music, tyga flat out lied and said he's from Compton when he's from some wealthy suburb. If he was more straight up with us about shit like that than nobody would say a thing about it.

    • What?

      You really are a stupid mofo aren't you? I bet you're one of the stupid cuntz on World Star Hip Hops fight vids, or even worse, your filming for it and shouting "World Star" like a fucking clown. Music and an artists image 9/10 are fictitious. None of these so called gangster rappers are real gangsters, but saying they are sells more records, and that's a fact. Jay-Z sold coke, so what? 50 Cent sold coke, so what? Having a small part in crime and being perceived as gangster is all to help their music careers, and it has done massively for both of them. And so what if Rick Ross had a good upbringing, he can still rap with the best on the scene at the minute (although I'm not really a fan), his cover was blown with the CO job, but it hasn't harmed him has it? So many artists claim to be something they're not to sell records, and not just in rap. Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Marilyn Manson, it's all AN ACT to sell CD's/concert tickets.

    Pointing out something we all know doesn't make you any less of a desperate washed up hasbeen. I can't take your shit talking serious when you signed with ICP's record label, and take money from the worst group in the history of rap because your broke and need the cash. Now you dissing Tyga, who aint done shit to you, for the attention. This dude would go on stage and suck a dick if he thought he'd get a check out of it. Sad but true

  • Sensaye Sixkiller

    Anyone can take one look at Tyga and tell he's frontin'. I have nothing against dudes from the 'burbs, just own it and tell your story. There's enough suburban kids that listen to hip-hop, it's not like you won't have a fan base that relates to you. But being a rapper now is like being a wrestler, you have to create this image and then do promos and shit as that character so that people believe you. The problem is, dudes like Tyga build up this image, then their music attracts the thug element, and they can't even have fun performing at their concerts anymore because it's a negative and violent environment that THEY created. Who do you think has more fun at their shows? Uncle Murda or Homeboy Sandman? I'd rather get paid 2 Gs to do a show with a positive and 'hip-hop' environment then get paid 10 G's to do a show I might not make it through alive and I have to be escorted by six 500 lb bodyguards and shit. There's a lot of rappers in over their heads. It makes me wonder if they're puppets, just being punked into making music like that by a hidden hand.
