Biography

Curtis Donnell Davis (August 7, 1968 – June 15, 2002), better known by his stage name Big Mello, was a rapper from Houston, Texas. He debuted in 1992 with the album Bone Hard Zaggin' on the Rap-A-Lot Records label.

Wegonefunkwichamind appeared two years later without any of the usual Rap-A-Lot guest stars. Those who encountered Big Mello's deep Texas sound compared him to favorably to Scarface or rising star Z-Ro, but Rap-A-Lot never found the right way to package Mello and soon he was on to other labels. Southside Story appeared in 1996 on the small N-Terrogation label and failed to spread his name past the most hardcore of Texas hip-hop fans.

Tragedy struck on 15th June 2002 , when Mello lost control of his car and hit a pillar, killing both himself and a passenger. As years went on, the cult stood firm with Mello's albums - almost all out of print - trading for at least 50 dollars on Internet auction sites.
