Big Boy Shares His Inspiring Journey From ‘Homeless to Hollywood’


What better way to celebrate your birthday than to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? iHeartRadio's Big Boy is celebrating a birthday today and receiving his well-deserved star and joined Ryan Seacrest on-air on Wednesday, September 8, to reflect on his journey.

"It's amazing, bro, to have this honor," the radio host shared. "For one, just to be blessed with having another calendar as far as blowing out your candles and having another birthday. That's not given. And then to be able to celebrate this with your friends, your family and all your listeners. … I never thought this would be something I would have. … I'm a kid that used to walk home from Hollywood because my friend Frankie and I, we didn’t have money for the bus to get home, so I went from homeless to Hollywood. This is amazing, bro."

Congrats, Big Boy! Listen back to the full interview for more, including to hear how he got his start in the industry.
