Justin Ingleton, better known by his stage name Bigg Jus, is an American alternative hip hop artist from New York City, New York. He was a member of Company Flow along with El-P and Mr. Len.[1] He is also one half of the duo Nephlim Modulation Systems with Orko Eloheim.

History[edit]

After the breakup of Company Flow in 2001, Bigg Jus formed the now defunct Sub Verse Music and began to pursue his solo career. He moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he continued his musical career with his self-produced EP Plantation Rhymes. Moving on to the creation of his first solo album, he put together an album known as Black Mamba Serums. However, in the wake of the September 11 incidents in 2001, he pulled the album just before its release unsatisfied with its content. He went back to the studio and recreated the album more to his liking. He released this version as Black Mamba Serums v2.0 on Big Dada in 2004.[2] Just to prove a point to his listeners, he included the original album mp3s as bonus content.

In 2005, Bigg Jus combined with long-time friend DJ Gman to produce Poor People's Day, which was released on Mush Records.

In a 2006 interview, Bigg Jus said that he and El-P were working on a new Company Flow album to be released later in the year.[3]

Bigg Jus released the solo album, Machines That Make Civilization Fun, on Mush Records in 2012.

Style[edit]

Graffiti is a common theme in his lyrics as he used to be a graffiti artist himself.
