This week’s installment of the “Big Facts” podcast was extra special for several reasons. Not only did hosts Big Bank and DJ Scream celebrate their 100th episode of the show, but they ushered it in with the most highly requested guest and conducted a Peewee Longway interview. The “Servin Lean” rapper stopped by to fill fans in on what he’s been up to, music, living in Atlanta, and much more.

Before making millions by rapping, several artists in the industry initially found their source of income, often partaking in illegal activities. Peewee started the conversation by talking about that transition from street life to music industry star and how he believes that most individuals who engage in street activity are usually “trapped.”

“During my little journey, I can’t say what nobody else can, but I did what Black did—kicked back and cool it and stayed focused,” the rapper explained. “But it’s hard, especially if you have motion. If this is something that can feed all of us sitting right here, I take that route [without the risk]. So, I don’t find it hard at all.”

However, street and music life weren’t the only things Peewee juggles. The rapper explained how he’s handling his various titles, including fatherhood.

“They (his family) come first. I gotta do whatever she says before I leave out the door. If I  don’t make it out the trap, rush home and do what I got to do, but they first then clients and shit, you know,” the “Wat Chu Gone Do” rapper said.

Elsewhere, Peewee explained when he initially felt he made some strides in the music scene. “When I did that ‘James Bond.’ That shit did 6 million views when Guap dropped that time,” the rapper told Bank. “My shit did 6 million views that time. Ain’t nobody know who the hell I was and the song called ‘James Bond.’” The song is a track off his  2014 collaboration mixtape with Gucci Mane titled MPA: Money, Pounds, Ammunition, which led the rapper to speak about his contribution to the music industry and the culture.  The hosts attempted to get him to reveal which one of his contributions he feels he doesn’t get enough credit for. However, Peewee bashfully declined to answer, but not before stating that he initially introduced a heavier stoner element in trap music as seen performed by artists such as Future.

Unable to accept the “Let’s Get High” rapper’s humble answer, Bank posed the question to Peewee again — where does he spot his influence in the rap scene? — to which he seemingly insinuated his sound and flow have often been mimicked.

“You know, it’s just a lot of them that say they looked up to a nigga, like fuck with me,” he added.  The “Ooowwweee” musician said sometimes it’s hard for him to accept because, at the point in his musical career, Peewee claimed, “I’m still having fun in the booth, and I’m like ‘Y’all nigga real deal hard ass rapping. How in the hell you talking about you look up to me and what I’m doing.”

Peewee briefly talked about his relationship with Nipsey Hussle and how they welcomed each on their respective platforms. Peewee admitted that he was crushed by the “Racks in the Middle” emcee’s untimely passing. He also denounced internet-created conspiracy theories regarding the star’s March 2020 death, calling it “all cap.” “He was powerful though. He was heading to that,” Peewe said. “It’s crazy how niggas start going platinum and shit then they gone.”

Before leaving, Peewee let fans know music is on the way and that he was working on a proper rollout. As always, if you like what you heard, be sure to stay tuned every week for new episodes of “Big Facts.” Also, don’t make sure to watch the Peewee Longway interview above!
