What made you want to rap about something so deep and so personal, that a lot of people would rather not put in their music?
Big Zulu: I’m of the notion that we must educate people, we must be exemplary and that the more I rap about my origin, the more I heal from the things that hurt me and grudges. So, all the things that might have hurt me, when I rap about them, I’m letting go.
