40 Glocc Changes His Name To

The controversial rapper explains his name change, jumps on tour with his friend 50, and readies a feature-heavy new album.

Inland Empire, California rapper 40 Glocc announced this morning that he will be changing his name to "Big Bad 40" (reported to be pronounced Big Bad 4-0). “In a country where freedom of speech is number one on our list of Constitutional rights, I recognize yet another clause in the system and I will not give them another opportunity to use their own laws against me. My former name was always an acronym. 40 represented the 40 acres and a mule they never gave us. Glocc represented Ghettos Legally Oppressed with Crooked Cops. A change has come so this change must be recognized,” said Big Bad 40 in a statement.
