Biography

It’s been almost 3 decades since Robert ”Bigg Robb” Smith started on his professional musical journey. Hailing from Cincinnati Ohio, Robb’s earliest childhood memories are of him reading Ebony and Jet magazine aloud for family and friends at the age of 3 years old. “My cousins would make me do it for their entertainment”, says Bigg Robb. “I guess you could say I’ve been in the spotlight for a long time”.

Starting off in 1979 as a local disc jockey at a small community radio station in his hometown, Bigg Robb began meeting celebrities and forging relationships that changed his life.

I was 11 years old when a gentleman named Tom Knox put me on the air. It was a blessing I mean I had no idea back then that what God had planned for me. I just wanted for my mom and dad to be able to sit at home and hear me come through their radio. When I started my voice hadn’t even changed, and people would call in and say ‘tell that lil girl to play this and that’. It was funny because I sounded like a cross between Smokey Robinson and Michael Jackson. After about a year and a half of doing this, I got my own show and that’s when I really got loose. I mean the records I would play are now called classics and I can remember when they first came out. I was the first person to ever play rap on the radio. I’m talking Grandmaster Flash, Spoonie Gee, Planet Rock, Run DMC, Newcleus and the list goes on & on. Then I get the bright idea to try and do some interviews with some of the stars (well God gave me the idea), and that’s how I met Midnight Star, Reggie Calloway, Bootsy Collins and my good friend Roger Troutman.
