Catching up with the entertainment mogul that is Big Baby Davis

Glen Big Baby Davis famously dropped his first hip-hop/dance/pop single this week, “Big Baby Gon Turn It Up“.

AND YOU KNOW JUST WHAT HIS NAME IS! BIG BAYYBAYYYYYYYYYYY.

And if you thought his teammates weren’t going to razz him about it, then you must not be familiar with any sort of male camaraderie  The first thing I saw tonight when walking into the Magic locker room was Jameer Nelson and Quentin Richardson picking on Big Baby at the same time giving him props for saying, “It’s actually pretty good once we forget that it’s YOU!”.  Did that stop Big Baby from belting it out to the rest of the locker room? Of course not.

AND YOU KNOW JUST WHAT HIS NAME IS! BIG BAYYBAYYYYYYYYYYY.

I spoke with BBD for a few minutes about the new single and what we can expect in the future:

Magic Basketball Online: What was the motivation for the new song?

Big Baby Davis: Guys have to have other hobbies than just basketball! People just don’t understand that.

MBO: So when can we expect a new album?

BBD: No album. You put an album out and people just think it’s a basketball player trying to be a rapper! [Side note: the single of "Big Baby Gon Turn It Up" should be available on iTunes next week]

MBO: Have you abandoned Bieber after a made basket this year (‘Baby, Baby, Baby ooooooooohhh’ often played last season)?

BBD:  Definitely. … That was one of the main reasons for making the song!

MBO: If you had to choose which show to be on, American Idol or Top Chef (remember, BBD was a celebrity judge on Iron Chef this summer)?

BBD: … [thinking] … Top Chef. OR Dancing With the Stars!

There you have it boys and girls. Athlete/Chef/Entertainer/Mogul Glen “Big Baby” Davis: more than just a pretty face.
