Ever since the heydays of the 1980s, Marcia Robertson has been grooving in the music game as the founding member of Flatland Entertainment. More popularly known as Best Inda Game, aka B.I.G., Marcia Robertson is a premier businesswoman, songwriter, and music producer, all while being a single mother of three.
Born and raised in Watts, California (or Hollywatts as most people call it), Marcia Robertson has always loved music. She started playing the flute in middle school while attending 93rd St. Elementary. Music to her was more than just a casual thing. She was very passionate about it on a deeper level. She fondly remembers her first music teacher, Mr. Shelly Thomas, who taught her many great things. She also met her best friend, Orlita Barnes, in 1968 while in kindergarten, where they played the flute together.
Her debut project was a rap group coming out of Hollywatts called P.O.W., also known as Prisoners of Watts. It was well-received in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. The group served under a previous production company called BMP (Big Mama Productions). P.O.W. dominated the airwaves on Southern California radio stations KDAY and KGFJ. One of the producers for BMP known as Battle Cat was P.O.W.’s DJ and was directly under the management of B.I.G.
B.I.G. has created a genre of her own called Flatland Funk by combining street flava with heavy-hitting tracks. A true lyrical rap artist, B.I.G. has performed at various events and premier locations such as the Vault 350, Long Beach California, The Key Club, Hollywood, 5th Street Dick’s in Los Angeles, BB King Blues Club, and many more notable venues.
Nowadays, Marcia also goes by the moniker the OG Big MaMa, which is what most people usually know her as. With the notoriously talented Big MaMa at the helm of Flatland Entertainment, they’ve become incredibly successful at captivating a very diverse market. The company is strategically structured with four very distinct labels that target a specific market, each based on people’s listening preferences and music genres.
