BigMouthBen on Auburn Ave.


When I saw BigMouthBen (Benjamin Graham) on his yellow bike I knew there was a story to tell. His story did not disappoint. BigMouthBen is currently living his dream. He is a successful rapper and business owner. He rides his yellow bike in the city 8-10 hours a day selling snacks to finance his project to help those who are battling difficulties in life. BigMouthBen knows first hand how low a person can get. He was a drug addict for 20 years and lived a life of homelessness and despair. After his last arrest for selling drugs he was required to attend a day treatment program. The program required him to stay sober and this is when he realized that he had dreams. Less than a year after his last arrest, BigMouthBen established a publishing company which then released his first album. He continues to share his story and inspirational message through his music but he is passionate about being out on the streets on his yellow bike and encouraging others to win in life. Youth look up to him and know from his life story that dreams can come true and the importance of an honest day’s work.  To learn more about BigMouthBen or to make a donation to his efforts visit
