Tyumen, Russia (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
“Big Goals” is a BIG song for Struggle da Preacher—his first collaboration with a big figure in hip-hop, Yukmouth. Yuk's been in the game for almost 20 years; a Grammy-nominated rapper with his former group The Luniz, and one of the best and most-known rappers in California.
“I remember me was like 12 years old, and I listened to ‘I Got 5 On It.’ Then in 2006 I bumped that Thug Lordz Trilogy, and I couldn't imagine that I would do a record with Yuk,” says Struggle. “I also decided to bring my brother St. Rap on the song, cuz he's very good at spitting in Russian, and I wanted that people in Russia [to] know where we came from and whom we work with right now. It's really a big achievement for both of us,” adds Struggle.
Struggle reached Yuk's management at the end of 2011 with the help of Tornadic Entertainment, LLC and the song has just been released worldwide in July of 2013 by Tornadic Entertainment, LLC and its partner Wiggins Media Group Worldwide.
Struggle goes on to say, “This is that type of song you can't just record easily. I knew that I had [a] heavy weight…with me on the song, so I had to be sure I do my best. First, I composed a beat on my own, recorded a verse and even Yuk did his verse; but then I found that beat not good enough, so I contacted my sound producer Dmitry Kupriyanov to provide me with a beat. So he composed it and then mixed the whole song together. I recorded like 3 or 4 different verses until I got satisfied with one. I also made St. Rap to have another try before I approved his verse.”
The cover art for the single is unique with a depiction of a triple-headed dragon—it’s not a random idea either. Born in Russia, Struggle decided to come up with a three headed dragon because it’s something from his culture—common character in Russian fairy tales. Since Yukmouth’s group The Regime’s album is called The Last Dragon, has a smoky dragon on the cover which represents Yukmouth, and Yukmouth has a song called “Godzilla,” it made sense because it’s symbolic. Lastly, Struggle credits St. Rap for putting the Russian town Tyumen on the world hip-hop map by putting a verse on the song so the world knows where we come from.
