When Big Scoob began focusing on his musical aspirations, he learned some creative lessons from Tech N9ne. Working on different delivery styles and patterns, Tech told him to let the beat tell him what to write about. “When I first started rapping, Tech taught me how to count bars,” Big Scoob recalls.
In 2009, Big Scoob released his Monsterifik album, which featured “Salue” with Tech N9ne and “Big Fella.” Big Scoob’s output increased exponentially in 2011; releasing both the Damn Fool album and No Filter EP.
With a career defined by some of Strange Music’s hardest material, Big Scoob shifted his focus to the political and sociological state of America on H.O.G., his 2016 album. Short for Hand Of God, H.O.G. featured such searing selections as “A.B.N.,” short for America’s Biggest Nightmare. In the song, which features Killer Mike and Bumpy Knuckles, Big Scoob and his guests explain that a black man with an education is America’s Biggest Nightmare.
For Duality, though, Big Scoob wanted to put the focus on himself. It was a necessary step in the process for his personal recovery.
With Duality, Big Scoob is standing tall. And strong. Again.
