Less than week away from his 26th birthday North Carolina rapper James Haley—aka Big Baby Gucci—brings auto-tuned anthems (“Pressure + Layers”) to Tampa's Pegasus Lounge for a show on Sunday, Aug. 7.

The songs have launched him out of the underground and into the attention spans of rap fans now drawn to a story that includes growing up in a strict household, some early childhood troubles and overcoming dead end jobs to become of of the the region’s fastest-rising rappers.
