Big Love is an American rapper and CEO of Candy Sto' Productions, in 1997 he released his independent debut album, Representin Real, which contained successful singles I'm A Pimp produced by Sean "Solo" Jemsion, Hatas Too produced by Archie "DJ Blast" Jackson & What A Playa Won't Do feat. D of TGC produced by Michael "Mike B" Banks. The album jumped out of the gate selling more than 40,000 units. The name "Big Love" was given to him by DJ Blast producer of some of the early Wreckless Klan sound out of Houston. Big Love is a member of the PC Gz. (Pimp Click).

For the next 3 years following his debut Big Love would make appearances and features on the city's most respected DJ's, DJ Screw and Michael 5000 Watts' lucrative mixtapes. In 2000 he branched off to form Candy Sto' Productions and create his own mixtape buzz alongside partner Damien Dugas and older brother Big J Miller who would receive a life sentence shortly afterwards that year. The following year 2001, Big Love would be shot 5 times by an assailant in his Studewood neighborhood. He had plenty of time to recover, contractually it wouldn't be until 2006 Big Love's agreement with Unlimited Records was up and he was legally free to release his sophmore efforts. In November of 2006 leaving a family dinner Big Love's younger sister Kimberly was killed in an auto accident by a drunk driver. Now, while left healing from gun shot wounds, he would also mourn the lost of his sister.

Big Love would transition from the streets and focus solely on his musical ventures upon return of his health. In 2009 he released H.ouston's B.est O.fficially. Big Love says, "Houston's Best Officially was to introduce me back to the city I carried on my back before the major labels came giving out deals. Most of the recipients of the deals were once fans of mine. H.B.O. was getting the chip off my shoulder left by the industry. It was frustrating to see artists I had nurtured get interviewed and always mention others as their inspiration. So just as a submarine does I emerged to the surface as impressive as ever." The single and video "Dues Paid Change Owed" would tell his story and set the return for one of the city's most prolific rap artist.
