BIO OF TROY MITCHELL
Troy Mitchell A.K.A (Big Baby), Producer/Rap artist, was born in Portsmouth Va. Troy Mitchell always had a passion for Hip Hop. His life was hard growing up as a kid without the guidance of his father. Troy Mitchell went from hearing about the hood legends to later becoming one. To prevent the disaster of his life from the streets passions, his brother John E. Mitchell decided to direct Troy’s passions into another direction and that’s when Hip Hop became the forceful drive in his life. Troy’s brother John was later incarcerated, which left him once again, to battle life in the streets. However, this time he chose to make his brother proud by continuing the task of trying to reach the success of their dreams.
When John returned, he and Troy formed a group named 3 Feet. The group lasted about four years and had great accomplishments, including their work with artist Salt & Pepa (in which at the time, was one of the industry's hottest female rap duo in the game). 3 Feet contributed to the background vocals for one of Hip Hops most known songs, “What a Man” by Salt & Pepa and were also featured in clips of the “What a Man” video. The greatest experience 3 Feet had during the run with artist Salt & Pepa was the live performance on Saturday Night Live. 3 Feet was then signed to London Polygram Records, managed by "Hurby (Azor) Lovebugs" Idol Makers management.
Troy Mitchell has done work with a lot of producers, but claims the union between himself and Teddy Riley (one of the industries greatest talents who paved the way for all Virginia producers) was one of his most remarkable moments. Troy and Teddy Riley later become very good friends. Still on the mission of his life, he would later run into a good friend Melvin “Magoo” Barcliff offering “Magoo” help on production to later be introduced by him to Timothy "Timbaland" Mosley.
Troy did his first collaboration record to ever actually be released off of Timbaland’s first album "Timbaland & Magoo" a song called “Writing Rhymes”. He would later go back to New York's hit factory in Manhattan New York to do a song of his own featuring: Timbaland on the hook of the song called "Brangin It" off of Timbaland’s compilation album "Life in da Basement" which also gave well known rapper "Ludacris" his brake with his first single "Fat Rabbit" to later become a house hold name. Troy again later went to do what would be his last collaboration record off of Timbaland’s album "Indecent Proposal" called Beat Club which was actually the introduction of his newly created record label. Beat Club featured artist: “Magoo”, Troy Mitchell A.K.A.”Jason Alias” (now known as “Big Baby”), Sin & Timberlands’ brother Sebastian. This album also featured one of the music industries greatest Mc “Jay-z”. Timbaland helped Troy Mitchell to develope a more versatile style of rapping and for that he is very thankful. Troy Mitchell is very thankful for the impact that Timbaland had in his life, it is well appreciated!!!
So you see, Troy Mitchell has been around the game a long time, and he feels if giving the same opportunity's "HE WILL BE THE NEXT GREATEST THING". So, from the experience that Troy Mitchell gained from being in the company of many of today’s major artist, Troy Mitchell decided “WHY NOT” start my own record label, and give the opportunity to other unfortunate struggling artist to finally get their big break in the industry. This is what inspired Troy Mitchell to start his independent record label Gorilla Music Group. “BIG BABY" My Passion is my Pain!!!!
