Big Lean is a 25 yr old Emcee from Toronto, Ca, fortunately for him he doesn't have that "Drake" sound or he wouldn't be featured here....lol okay my bad back to Big Lean. I must admit I was on the fence with this guy at first but he won us over with his passion and deep lyrics. There are tons of Emcees rapping about the hood telling there perspective on "Hood Life", but it was a refreshing sound produced by Pro logic. Make sure you checkout the video below and tell us what you think.
