Background:

Based in Rancho San Diego, Alvin Shamoun -- aka Biggie Babylon -- is a hip-hop artist (formerly known as Entre-P). Born in San Diego to a pair of Chaldean Iraqi immigrants, he grew up in Rancho San Diego area of El Cajon. His family has owned Mike's Market liquor store in a low income neighborhood of Southeast San Diego since 1972.

After graduating from Valhalla High School in 1999, he went off to college at the University of California, Irvine, returning to San Diego to attend community and then, at the age of 21, opening his own check cashing and cellular phone store across the street from Mike's Market. Having also run a 420 dispensary, he later began making music and built his own recording studio.

His 2013 album as Entre-P, C.E.O.G., includes the track “Hookah Flows,” featuring local rapper Timz, who was was nominated for San Diego Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Album in 2007. Together, the duo formed the independent record label Babylon Music Publishing LLC, working with (among others) Josh Franks (producer) and DollaBillGates (recording artist).

He changed his name to Biggie Babylon in 2014 and inked a deal with Universal Music Group.
