  1. The second youngest of seven children, Big Boy grew up in Los Angeles. After college, a hefty Big worked as a bodyguard for the rap group The Pharcyde. It was an adventurous and enlightening experience to be on the road touring with The Pharcyde, and it solidified Big's interest in hip-hop culture.

    In 1994, Big Boy became a radio host at L.A.'s Power 106. Since then, Big Boy has dominated the ratings, and his show is now syndicated on ABC Radio Networks. His #1 rated morning show, "Big Boy's Neighborhood," is tons of fun for Big because it includes both topical and humorous elements on a daily basis. Even people who aren't into hip-hop know who Big Boy is, as the whole city of L.A. was once covered with larger-than-life billboards of him in nothing but his sexy silk boxers. Yes, his face -- and much more -- was everywhere!

    Big Boy has been named Personality of the Year four times at the Radio Music Awards and six times by Radio and Records magazine. In 2002 and 2004, the National Association of Broadcasters also recognized Big Boy's exceptional talent at the Marconi Awards, which is known as the "Oscars of radio."

    Big Boy has appeared in movies such as The Longest Yard, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo. Big is also the voice of MTV's Yo Momma with Wilmer Valderrama.

    In 2003, Big Boy had duodenal switch stomach surgery and lost over 250 pounds! Now, billboards all over L.A. show off a thinner Big Boy -- fans still can't believe the photos are real, the effect is that dramatic!
