About Bignlow&U-Niq

denver, CO

My name is Shanton Hendreson AKA Unique. I was born in Oklahoma but i was raised in Florida.I started to listen to different types of artists such as Bob Marley,Michael Jackson,Pimp c(rip),Bun B,Outkast,Warren G,SPM, Devin the Dude,Snoop Dog,Trick Daddy, E-40 and more. That's when i realized music is what i wanted to pursue. They influenced me in such a way that music became my life. It became my soul and in a way it became my identity. I wanted to be an artist and that's were my journey begins.
Not only did great artists like the ones listed influence me but so did my cousin Lee and my brother Jabbor. The very first group i was in was known as CTC(click tight click) The group consisted of four group members. Lee,Q.T,Pedro,and myself. We made our first album. The songs were based on every day situations. It had a mix of both soul and gangsta. The group only lasted about two years.This was all happening in my home town Oklahoma. The group was eventually forced to split up.There for, I decided to hit the road to Florida. There was nothing holding me back so i figured why not. When i got there i realized what i wanted wasn't there for me. I had to hit the road again. This time i didn't go to Oklahoma instead I went west to the C.O.
Denver opened up new opportunity's for me. While I was there I ran into a guy named Sean White aka BIG.He happened to be a singer and his brother Twist was a rapper. It was all to perfect. We formed a group known as MWF(Mid West Family)and about a year later we completed our first album. Then we got to compete in the rap wars were we placed second place. While we were there we met a guy named Mark Sparks. He opened new doors for us. Or so we thought. He shot our very first video. We picked the song every day people. We thought he was the beginning to something new and better but later realized it wasn't what it seemed.We decided to move on.
The group was getting rocky so i needed to get away and clear my thoughts. I stayed in Florida for a while and then i headed back to the CO. When i got back nothing was the same. Our group kinda fell out but I refused to give up. Twisted ended up leaving the group but that didn't stop me or Big. It was up to us and i was determined to make it work. Within 6 months Big and me made our second album. It was called Big and Unique presenting Totally Nude.
While finishing our last few touches to our second album, I ran into a guy named Nick. It was a good thing for us. He was able to get us a photo shoot for our new album. Not only that, we got to promote a new energy drink called DNA and finally we got the opportunity to do the soundtrack for an up coming movie called Blacktacular. Now were just waiting for our album to come out and hit the stores.
It was a long road to get to were I am now but it was all worth it. I know this is only the beginning of everything ahead. I believe i can do anything i want if i really want it. I just stay positive and opened minded. I really believe that's why all these great opportunity's are presented to me. They said "your an artist", come to find out they were right!
