My name is Westside Train A.K.A Deandra Norwood. I was born and raised in a projects called Perry Homes in Atlanta, Georgia. Rapping has always been a passion of mines. Some of my influences were; UGK, 2Pac, MJG, &Trick Daddy. Those were some of the greatest that ever did it in my eyes.
In 1998, I had my first record label by the name of Shonuff Records. The label consisted of; The Fam, Project Squad, and Myself. My first recording studio was in the basement of my house. The best singles off of our first project were; Peep Mine, Ghetto Glory, Finish Line, & Fam.
We enjoyed ourselves. Performing in different clubs were one of the perks. Trying to get our music out there was one of hell of a long promising ride, but everything was going our way that is until 2002. I got jammed up and was incarcerated for 3&1/2 years on RICO and carrying a concealed weapon while being a felon.
During my bid, I lost my record label due to not fully knowing and understanding the in’s and out’s of the music business, or at least enough to keep my record label going like I do now.
2005 my second label Goodfellas Ent. was established and still rocking. SALOOT was the first single of my cd’s Bankhead Muscle І and Bankhead Muscle ІІ which is out right now on just about every music streaming platform such as; Youtube, Spinrilla, Apple music, and Spotify.
Also keep your eyes and ears out for my new artists Cario & Menace Lifestyle. Were putting in a hell of a lot of work and well be coming at you sooner than you think so get prepared. Make sure you follow me on all my social media outlets such as; Instagram @: big_mobb, Twitter @WestsideTrain and Facebook @ Goodfella Train.

66 Raw stopped by Lou Williams of the Houston Rockets Private Pool party at his house in Atlanta. Very seldom do you see pool parties where people actually "swim" and get in the pool but this Memorial Weekend was different because pretty much everyone got in the pool and turnt up.
