Previous illness history: Big Scarr’s daily struggle with pain

The Memphis native deals with anguish every day, but his music celebrates adversity. He explains it to Audiomack. When Alexander Woods was 16 years old, he was involved in an automobile accident that left such a lasting mark that it would later serve as his new identity.

The South Memphis native, who had been thrown through his friend’s car’s glass, tried to heal as best he could. A few years later, when he started rapping, he chose the stage name, Big Scarr, embracing rather than denying the struggles that had shaped him.

Scarr, who is only 21 years old, speaks with maturity and values his family above all else. He frequently refers to his father as his “best friend” in interviews; to me, he claims that the only reason the physical recovery from the accident and that from a shooting that happened just last year seemed manageable was that he had already come to terms with the death of his cherished grandmother.

One of the most interesting rap scenes right now is in Memphis, and Scarr is a gruff, kinetic part of it. His cousin Pooh Shiesty appears to be a genuine sensation, and his old pal Baby K, who first inspired Scarr to rap, is also making waves.

In reality, Gucci Mane signed Scarr to 1017/Atlantic after receiving one of Scarr’s earliest musical works, the throbbing “Make a Play,” via Shiesty.

Another successful family outing resulted from that deal: “My mama turned me onto Gucci,” explains Scarr. We once drove around while listening to “745” and other street crap.

The album Big Grim Reaper, which came out last month, ratchets bones as you might expect, but it also leaves room for disarming honesty, as in the song “Pay Me,” where he raps about taking Percocets to dull the anguish that follows him around every day. It’s the kind of debut that demonstrates a creative talent for snagging fresh spaces within a pre-existing framework.

There’s a conspiracy theory that record label sign black artists who are new to this career and they also get them a lot of life insurance policies…. It’s weird how they keep magically getting into these accidents… just saying something is not right!
