All the deets:

Fresh back from E-40’s highly successful “Wake it Up Tour” Big Rich is set to release his sophomore album Heart of the City. After releasing the critically acclaimed album Block Tested Hood Approved on Street Cred/Koch Records in 2006 and the ground breaking SF Anthem in 2008 Big Rich is proving that he is here to stay. Though both of his previous releases reached nationwide attention with MTV & BET airplay Big Rich insists he is not satisfied. Still hungry for more Heart of the City is Big Rich’s best work to date. The official lead single “Ballin” produced by Auttomatik is currently in heavy rotation in the streets and catching a large amount of attention from radio stations throughout the entire west coast. Other tracks on the album like “Pushin,” were produced by D-Animals and “Fly Gangstas” by M.A., shows Big Rich’s growth as a nationwide artist, whose music has reached new heights. Along with his heavy bass street anthems “I’m Back,” “Wassup” featuring Glasses Malone & “Summertime” featuring Tha Jacka all produced by D-Animals, Big Rich continues to deliver his trademark sound.

After 2 plus, years since the release of Block Tested Hood Approved Big Rich remained relevant in the Bay Area Hip Hop scene with several street albums, countless guest appearances & staying in rotation on MTV. Never backing down from a challenge Big Rich is prepared to survive through our country’s and the music industry’s current recession by adapting and adjusting to the times. Heart of the City will be a fully independent album released his own label 3 Story Muzik/Street Cred Music Group. Guest Appearances include Glasses Malone, Tha Jacka, Dem Hoodstars, 3 Story Gang & more. Along with production by 3 Story’s own in-house producer D-Animals, Automattik and M.A, also contributed tracks to the album as well.
