Can you recall what you were doing in October of 2016? For many DMV natives, and even outside of the region, The Great Depression was confirmation that Big Flock was ready for new endeavors and a new chapter in his career. However, to a degree, it’s not always up to us how life unfolds.
In October of 2016, the Maryland rapper was arrested after an issued search warrant at his home. In March 2017, Big Flock (Charles Ulysses Bowman-Bey) was sentenced to 45 months in prison. Behind every set back is a blessing. Although his career was put on hold, the overwhelming support that Flock received throughout the duration of three years, is incredible.
The rise begins now. With Big Flock being a free man, the music scene in the DMV is about to be shift. Over the course of three years, Flock and his team continued to dish out music, but, we can be sure to enjoy more new material; we’re still waiting on the collab from Flock and Wale.
Welcome home Big Flock. For now, stream his project, The Great Depression.
