JT the Bigga Figga is an American producer and rapper from the Fillmore neighborhood of San Francisco, California.[1] He has produced music on over one hundred albums, for artists including Daz Dillinger, Master P, The Game, San Quinn, and Messy Marv.[2]

Music career[edit]

In 1991, JT founded the independent record label Get Low Recordz.[1][3] What started as a basement enterprise and a one-man operation, would later become one of the most successful independent labels in the country.[4]

JT's rap debut came in 1992 with the self-released album Don't Stop til We Major at the age of 18. The next year he followed it up with Playaz N the Game.[4] The album's first single, "Game Recognize Game" received significant airplay, thrusting JT into the spotlight. The success of his album led to a bidding war among record labels, and he eventually signed with Priority Records in 1995.[1][4][5] Subsequent albums released through Priority Records were unsuccessful, however, and in 1996 the label elected to release JT from his contract.[4]

After the dissolution of his contract with Priority Records, JT went back to self-distributing his albums through Get Low Recordz. With the money from his deal with Priority, JT invested in a new state of the art recording studio and began rapidly producing and releasing numerous albums. In 2000, after signing a modest distribution deal with Bayside Records, Get Low began expanding, releasing nearly 20 albums a year.[4]

In 2002, JT published an E-Book called The CEO Manual.[6]

In fall of 2005, JT was named A&R for the West Coast operations of the Houston, TX based Rap-A-Lot Records.[7]

Film and television career[edit]

JT the Bigga Figga's film credits include the Spike Lee movie Sucker Free City (2004),[8][9] and SKUZZ TV (2007),[10] a reality based documentary DVD released by 3MZ productions.

In 2006, JT worked with Snoop Dogg on a documentary DVD entitled Mandatory Business, which featured such names as Russell Simmons, Spike Lee, Xzibit, Young Buck and 50 Cent.[11]
