His next single "I'm Still Fly" featuring rapper Drake, who was still unsigned at the time, was released in 2009 and garnered significant attention in the hip-hop community.

Early life[edit]

Big Page was born on May 11, 1988 in a West end neighborhood of Toronto, Ontario in Canada. His parents are from Ghana in West Africa. He spent much of his youth on the football field and was later scouted to play for the Boise State Broncos football team of Boise State University in Idaho. After several run-ins with the law, Page followed the advice of his mother and childhood friend Sean Getti and turned to creating music.

Music career[edit]

Big Page released his debut single "Ballin' Is My Hobby" in 2007, which quickly became popular in his hometown of Toronto and in the online community. The video for the remix of the song featuring Mims aired on MuchMusic[1] and was hailed as a hip-hop anthem, earning Page credit in the mainstream market. In 2009 Page released "I'm Still Fly" featuring then-unsigned rapper Drake, which garnered a lot of attention and led to the still-unresolved conflict between the two rappers.
