Nicole says, “My first love was Zane McClellan and still is!” The most adventurous thing Nicole has ever done was, “I road on the back of my boyfriend’s bike with him for the first time. It does not sound like much, but it was his first motorcycle and he had never had anyone on the back before. It was the scariest test drive ever!” Nicole Define’s Success as, “Education, self improvement, accomplishing your goals and being happy with yourself and your life in what you do. To also know a rich person is one who needs the least, not who has the most.” and my last words are: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” “Nothing is Impossible if you believe in yourself”!

Delivering strong vocals and messages with his spoken word, David “Big Fitz” Fitzpatrick is a man on mission. Big Fitz says he got his start with poetry when he was asked to write a poem by his teacher, Ms. Hawkins, which he Titled Damn, I Hate That White Girl!
FIT ZPAT RICK
David “BIG FITZ” Fitzpatrick
He views the current status of music is watered down a little bit as far as lyrics go. Now it is all about gimmicks and fads, yet he says he is still a fan. He likes Artists such as UGK, Scarface, Tupac, Outkast and the Dungeon Family. He recalls the first Artist he listened to was Michael Jackson and the first Poet he enjoyed was Maya Angelou. When people see Big Fitz they should see a great poet that touches souls and is able to move people in the right direction.
When you sit down with him or purchase one of CD’s you start to feel the fire that burns inside of this Lightweight Revolutionary. Big Fitz feels he can call himself this because he says, “I should be doing more”.
When asking Imani’s Mother, Yolanda, about her take on Imani Modeling she says she has people around telling her to dream big for Imani and to work hard. When it comes to Photographer’s Yolanda researches them by looking at their work and talking to people about them. Yolanda also says the family would move to another location to support Imani’s Modeling Career.
He is genuine and 100. He is so much more than a Spoken Word Artist or a Block / Hood Poet. He is a man who speaks about struggles and wants people to not allow themselves to get caught up in pointing fingers. He says, “Now in 2011 we have a Black President so we have to make sure we tell it as it is. My CD’s have everything on them. That’s why I consider myself a “Lightweight Revolutionary”. 12
I want to shock the world Every time I grab the Mic TAZZERS…
He recalls that the most adventurous things he has ever done is went riding on a 20 foot or more hill when he was in High School. His favorite colors are blue and brown. Big Fitz Loves Lasagne, Grapes, Whatchamacallit Candy Bars and enjoys eating at Golden Corral.
Lately I done had to cut some cats short RAZZERS… Jealousy is a wasted emotion, You know who catch heart attacks HATERS…
He credits his father as his mentor and his children, Son who is 6 and a daughter who is 3, as the accomplishments he is most proud of.
Ain’t nowhere to go but up right now Like I play for the RAIDERS…
If he was a millionaire he would make sure his kids college tuition money is right, build a house or two, donate some to a Foster Care Home, go on a much needed shopping spree, and of course invest.
The Last Words of Big Fitz are:
Earth tone style that is Casual and laidback. You will never catch him without some CD’s of himself. He says the one thing he has to have in his wallet is money and that his first big purchase was a car.
to be patient because at times they do get nervous. Big Fitz has an Urban,

Big Fitz says, “Poets or Rappers either way. It’s all Poetry. We just talk about The Yolanda for new differentadvice things. I might talk abouthas the Republican Party. Rappers talk about cars. Photographer’s starting Modeling They use a beat. I choose to doinit the Acapella. Poetry has staying Power because it’s REAL. There is no crossover in Poetry; either you Industry on dealing with child Models is good or your not”.

Ronald “BIGG CHOICE” Smith Ronald Smith also known as “Bigg Choice” is the Owner of Choice Entertainment out of Connecticut. He is a strong Artist who makes you get up out of your seat and pay attention to what he is saying. The name BIGG CHOICE was chosen because he didn’t want to use his street name. He got his start in the music industry early on in life, but while in Prison he was told by Artist, Keith Murray that he was good, had great talent and should pursue a career in the music industry. He began writing songs and after returning home he went in full force on following his dream. When listening to his music you get REAL. He says, “Anything I talk about it is because I did it”. He has released 2 CD’s, The Real Street Blues and Get To Know Me. Bigg Choice says that the music industry is good. “Poetry is good, Rap is not dead. Hip Hop is a way of Life”. The first group he remembers listening to was The Temptations. The Artists he listens to now are Drake, Jay-Z, Rakim, but mostly unsigned Artists. He says, “I’m not really a fan of Lil’ Wayne”. The style or swag of Bigg Choice is just to be different. He says you will never catch him being disrespectful. The one thing he must have in his wallet are Bigg Faces, “I gotta have money”. He says his first big purchase was a car and his favorite color is Blue. The favorite food of Bigg Choice is Lasagne and his favorite place to eat is The Black Angus.
The accomplishment he is most proud of is the fact that Choice Entertainment has a hot team hitting the streets and making it happen. Bigg Choice defines Success as, “Living comfortable, getting to know success and getting the world to know Choice Entertainment. Anything other than the streets is a good thing”. When asked what 3 things he would do if he was a millionaire he said, “I would invest in my team, Buy a big house, and invest more”. The last words from Bigg Choice are “I got what they want, so get to know me”.
