Michael Oronde Wright
Owner and founder Michael “Big Shot” Oronde Wright started Next Wright Marketing & Promotions, better known as N.W.M.P. and now known as Big Shot Public Relations or Big Shot PR, in April of 2004 as a subsidiary of his long time music label Big Shot Music Group. After doing business with a handful of unqualified promoters, Big Shot decided to take charge of his label and artists destiny by handling all the marketing, promoting and booking himself directly dealing with venues, FM radio programmers and mixers, College DJs, Community Stations, CD and vinyl record manufactures, and top quality website and graphic designers. Big Shot promoted his first single release entitled “Shake That” by Big Shot Music artist Playa Azian in over 30 markets nationwide on FM broadcast Mix Show radio and sparked some international exposure as well and landed the support of; then, KKBT 100.3 The Beat Mix Show director DJ Hideo in Los Angeles along with other popular DJs on the station such as Spinderella, from the group Salt-n-Pepa, JiJi Sweet, and the Poetess just to name a few. Big Shot also landed several venue accounts for booking his label’s artist roster for performing such as the House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, Club Lingerie, the Hollywood Highlands, Century Club, and strategic concert bookings with organization such as the Events Company, Hot Import Nights, Import Auto Sports, and the Extreme Auto Fest.
With the advice from his mentor, music veteran, the late Jerome Mas, Big Shot founded Next Wright Marketing & Promotions. Since the company’s inception Big Shot has promoted several projects featuring a string of super star artists such as Ray Lavender, Jason Derulo, Ray J, Snoop Dogg, Chingy, R. Kelly, Detail, Jim Jones, LaTocha Scott (X Scape), Cold 187um (Above The Law / Ruthless Records), Kokane (Ruthless Records), Big Gipp (Goodie Mob), LeVert II (from the original Levert), Cash Out, Demetria McKinney, Tyga, Twista, Ace Hood, and many others.
In March of 2016 Big Shot changed the name Next Wright Marketing & Promotions to Big Shot Public Relations as he is expanding his services for actors/actresses, athletes, and personalities as well as continuing to provide Public Relation and marketing services to musicians. Big Shot Public Relations is not a subsidiary of Big Shot Music Group and operates independently. Big Shot Public Relations is owned by The Next Wright Corporation.
