TaJuan Perry, better known as Big Noyd, is an American emcee from the Queensbridge projects in the New York City borough of Queens. He is closely affiliated with Mobb Deep, and he is featured on all of their albums except Blood Money. He is of Puerto Rican and African American descent. He also has one daughter born Tiara Perry, who still lives in the Queens area.[1]

Biography[edit]

Big Noyd's (born May 7, 1975) debut was his verse on "Stomp 'Em Out" from Mobb Deep's 1993 debut Juvenile Hell, but it was first in 1995, on Mobb Deep's album The Infamous that Big Noyd attracted wider attention. On Mobb Deep's song "Give Up the Goods (Just Step)" from The Infamous he started the second verse with the line: Yo, it's the R-A-double-P-E-R N-O-Y-D, niggas can't fuck with me! He has later stated that he received his first contract, for $300,000, because of that verse.[2]

His debut album, Episodes of a Hustla, was released in 1996 on Tommy Boy Records. Noyd was incarcerated at the time of the release. In 2003, Big Noyd returned with his second album, Only The Strong. This album, just like his debut, had many Mobb Deep-related features. Noyd attributes the lackluster sales to Landspeed Records filing for bankruptcy (which became Traffic Entertainment Group) in an unrelated lawsuit, just as the album was being released. In 2004, Big Noyd released his third album, On The Grind, also featuring many guest-spots by Mobb Deep-related artists. The album was released independently through Monopolee Records, which Noyd helped to found and released under his full control, preventing issues that happened with Landspeed and Tommy Boy Records. He founded Noyd Inc. in 2007.
