Biography

Bigg Jus (also known as Bigg Justoleum or Lune TNS) is a rapper from New York City, formerly a member of Company Flow along with Mr. Len and El-P. After the late-1990s breakup of Company Flow, Bigg Jus formed the (now defunct) Subverse Records and began to pursue his solo career. Graffiti is a common theme in his lyrics as he used to be a graf artist himself.

Bigg Jus moved to Atlanta, where he continued his musical career with his self-produced EP Plantation Rhymes. Moving on to the creation of his LP, he put together an album known as Black Mamba Serums, which was scheduled to appear, coincidentally, on September 11th of 2001. However, shortly before the release, Jus decided to pull the album, unsatisfied with its content. Jus went back to the studio and recreated the album more to his liking; he released this version as Black Mamba Serums v. 2.0 in June 2004. Just to prove a point to his listeners, he included the original album mp3s as bonus content.

Bigg Jus’s approach to political rap is unique, in that he is uncompromising and intense in his message, whist avoiding the tiresome didactics of much ‘conscious’ rap. Check out the track ‘Silver Back Mountain King’ for a good example of his lyrical intensity. In late 2005, Bigg Jus combined with long-time friend DJ GMAN to produce Poor People’s Day, which was released on Mush Records.

    The new album really surprised me. It's rare to find a hip hop album that still sounds this left-field and original so many years after the "alt rap" sound got played out. Crazy shit.

    new album is not perfect but a breath of fresh air compared to the dubstep and crunk influenced stuff coming out these days.

    @bazookajordan: I think this is because he doesn't do a lot of promotion.
