Ever since Drake blew up, it became a little easier for kid actors to make the transition into hip-hop. Norman Golden, who appeared with Burt Reynolds in 'Cop And a Half' in the early '90s, as well as other films, is the next to try his hand. Golden has adopted the name "Enormus" and is hoping to take the rap world by storm.

"I came from a creatively expressive family on the music side," Golden told BallerStatus.com in an interview. "I grew up with a family of singers and musicians. I want to be a bigger inspiration to people. I want to help and be a part of change."

Golden appears to be heading down a different path than most by favoring quality over quantity. He wants to focus on crafting innovative, powerful lyrics and prefers to play important shows that cross genre lines. Thus far, Golden has shared bills with everyone from Herbie Hancock to the Wu-Tang Clan. He'll even open for KRS-One soon.

Golden is planning to release a mixtape as Enormus in the near future and will be crafting his second record for release by the end of the summer. He takes pride in maintaining an independent career and knows he has a lot of work to do on his own.

"I'll be ready for a full-length album in 2012," he said. "You can do things, but never compromise who you are as an artist," he said. "And when people tell you that you can't do something, thank them and then prove them wrong."
