November 28th 2011 -- After a nearly three year long musical hiatus, veteran New Orleans, Louisiana, rap titan, Michael "Big Mike" Barnett, returns to the spotlight with his brand new, highly anticipated solo opus, Bayou Classic: Love.Faith.Honor.Loyalty.

On the superior 12 track collection, the former Geto Boys' alum continues to exercise his tried and true lyrical prowess, over trunk-rattling, feel good down south instrumentals. Future classics include; the hard hitting "Bayou Classic," "That Come Back" is a slickly layered head-nodder, there's, of course, the block anthem "Certified," "Hands on Airythang," the set's lead-off single, is a notable party starter, "Rocket," a ultra-smooth ride along an ebbing bass-line, whilst "2 Die" is a thought provoking radio ready inevitable hit, to name some.

About Big Mike: As an original member of the short-lived rap duo, Convicts, Mike later was recruited by Mr. James Prince himself to replace the Geto Boys' Willie D following his sudden departure. The end result was their heralded 1993 fifth album, Till Death Do Us Part. When Willie eventually returned to the group shortly thereafter, Big Mike opted to instead go solo, unleashing his critically acclaimed premiere outing, Somethin' Serious, in June '94. He has since gone on to drop an additional five reputable LP's.

Bayou Classic: Love.Faith.Honor.Loyalty will be released on iTunes and other major digital outlets, as well as at select retail locations, on Tuesday December 13th 2011.
