Bigg Jus: Poor People's Day
Buy! - (Mush)
Along with El-P and Mr. Len, Bigg Jus was one of the members of the mid/late ‘90s NYC hip-hop trio, Company Flow. This is his third solo album. He gets help from DJ Gman, who produced the backing tracks on here. Jus’ rhymes are delivered in a steady stream of rapid fire verses, taking on a wide array of socio-political issues – everything from what he sees as unjust suffering caused by global economic inequities to media control and the resulting manipulation of the masses. This would almost be trite if it were not for the details with which he presents these issues, and even if you’ve heard it all before it still sounds fresh when Jus rhymes it over these dope beats. 1/4/2006 - Don Yates
