Big Heed & Alien met while playing instruments together in the church choir. Their childhood dream of making it big became a reality when an appearance on BET’s 106 and Park landed them a recording contract. Born Shaheed “Heed” Smith & Ali “Alien” Warren in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, Big Heed & Alien both began nurturing their musical interests early on. Alien started out on the back of his parent’s pots and pans and Heed with the first keyboard his mother bought for him at 10 years old. They both honed their skills during countless hours of isolation while on punishment.
