Port Gibson, Mississippi hip hop artist and radio personality Big T (T. Arrington), is on a mission to support cancer victims/survivors with his biggest assets, his music and his hair. His new song “Tribute” will be released on iTunes January 25, 2013 and he will donate 80 percent of sales proceeds to cancer research through a foundation to be named soon. He will also be donating his 36 inch long hair which has been one of his appearance trademarks for years.
Big T says, “I wrote this track because I wanted to do a special tribute not just for the family members and friends that I have lost or are survivors of cancer, but for all cancer survivors and victims.” He continues, “This song is also personal song. I just recently lost my mother-in-law, brother-in-law, close friend, and I also have 2 other friends that are suffering from forms of cancer. This is something that is much bigger than me, and I hope that someone who has experienced what I have can relate. This is a motivational song for the cause.”
