Illustrious is a 2008 album by rapper Big Noyd. The album was executive produced by Lil' Fame of rap duo M.O.P. The first single released was "Things Done Changed", for which a video was shot. This album has been criticized as it deviates from his raw and gritty style to a more bubblegum style.

This album is significant in the sense that it's the first Big Noyd album not to feature Mobb Deep on any songs.
