Carl Fontaine (the artist formerly known as Bigg 330) is an Akron Ohio native born July 8th 1991 as D.J. Grizzard . He was always viewed as very artistic and creative by family and friends. At a young age he would always dance and sing the lyrics to various rap tunes on the radio, such as Kris Kross “Jump”. He acquired an ear for hip-hop and R&B at the age of 6 cutting out pictures of rappers and watching music videos.
During his early years, he got into a lot of trouble in school, but in 5th grade he finally found a new talent. At school, when he saw a girl he was interested in, he would write her a song. As time went on he learned to curve his clever word play in his puppy love rhymes into a lyrical display of his daily life. Learning from a lot of up and coming Ohio rappers, uncles, and an older cousin, people began to see potential in his music.
Beginning to feel unfulfilled in his musical endeavours, Carl Fontaine decided to finally start making the music he always wanted to, faith-based positive hip-hop.
