Cig 40 grew up listening to neighborhood rappers like Biggie, Jay-Z and others like 50 Cent, and Lil Wayne that helped shape his youth.
Heavily influenced by his brother, Cig didn't officially start rapping until after his brother Pretty Pistols was murdered in 2012. Cig describes his music as a real Brooklyn sound. Old school principles mixed with an updated raw and edginess with an authentic gritty bounce that's full of energy. He's very versatile and can fuse different genres as well. With Brooklyn making major noise these last few years, be sure to take note and add Cig 40 to that list in the near future. Cig 40
