Entertainer Cutta C was born Cecil Stradford and spent the majority of his youth in a well-known suburb of Dallas, Texas affectionately named "Oak Cliff". Hanging out in recording sessions with his producer/father "BigStrad" since he was only a couple of years old, he began seriously immersing himself in the entertainment business in high school which led to the creation of the production, management and publicity firm BigBeatz Inc., with BigStrad at the helm of production and operations and Cutta C's "Momager" (Lea) handling management and publicity.
The Cutta C story first came to life through music when he and BigStrad locked themselves in the studio and released a mix tape "AckinAStr8Azz" with all original tracks hosted by DJ Smallz aka Mr. Southern Smoke of Fear Factor Music Group. This included the breakout single "Ack A Azz", which is *still* a certifiable club banger and helped Cutta C garner a sizable fan base all over the globe. The song was included in the soundtrack of the movie "Drop Me Off". StrikeForce MMA fighter Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal used the song as his intro fight song, which led to Cutta C inking a deal with EA Sports for inclusion of the song in their MMA game. "Ack A Azz" really is a shining example of what can happen when you release a song that fans *truly* like.
Cutta C also began expanding his entertainment resume and has landed a starring role in Out of Body Films "Home Alone in the Hood". The road that led to this role started with his releasing a documentary DVD series showcasing live performances, radio interviews, and street grinding. This opened the doors for Cutta C co-hosting a television show named Trix-n-the-Hat which aired in Dallas and Atlanta. He has also received media attention from other television shows as well, including the Donny B show and multiple episodes on Channel 8 (WFAA) Beat Street. Cutta C has received numerous print interviews and inclusions.
Cutta C continues to give back to the community with performances and speaking engagements on panels and at libraries and recreational facilities throughout the D/FW Metroplex. He also works with the cities of Frisco and Dallas, TX and has met with mayors from both cities. He was the first rap act to ever perform at the Frisco Freedom Fest. He became a household name with organizations such as Boys and Girls Clubs and Girls Inc, where he performs for individual centers as well as some of their very large regional conferences and has received numerous plaques and accolades from the organizations. This type of community service led to his being chosen as a marshal in the prestigious Elite Magazine Martin Luther King parade.Close
