Hardcore Chicano rapper Big Geminii (also known as Gemini and Big Gemini) found success with crossover pop-rap singles "Crazy for You" (2003), which featured the vocoder-crooning of MC Magic, and "Hypnotized" (2007), both of which appeared in Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 charts.
The Dallas, TX-born rapper's album recordings didn't fare well outside of his region, including his debut, 6:16 the Genesis (2001), and follow-up, Product of Pain (2003), though the latter's "Crazy for You" single was eventually picked up by Universal. In 2006 Big Geminii debuted as one-third of touted supergroup the Gamebreakerz (with Playa Rae and Fade Dogg), whose album Texikali was released on Houston radio DJ Mista Madd's Paid in Full imprint. The following year "Hypnotized" made its way into radio rotation, paving the way for his third LP, History in the Making (2008). ~ Cyril Cordor
