TaJuan Akeem Perry, (born May 7, 1975), better known by his stage name, Big Noyd, is an American rapper from Queensbridge, New York. He is closely affiliated with Mobb Deep, and he is featured on all of their albums except Blood Money. He is of Puerto Rican and African American descent. He also has 1 daughter born Tiara Perry, who still lives in Queensbridge, Queens.[1]


Big Noyd's debut was his verse on "Stomp 'Em Out" from Mobb Deep's 1993 debut Juvenile Hell, but it was first in 1995, on Mobb Deep's album The Infamous that Big Noyd attracted wider attention. He appeared on "Right Back At You" & "Give Up the Goods (Just Step)".He has later stated that he received his first contract, for $300,000 USD from Tommy Boy because of his verse on "Give Up The Goods (Just Step)".[2]

His debut album, Episodes of a Hustla, was released in 1996 on Tommy Boy Records. Noyd was incarcerated at the time of the release. According to Prodigy, the album sold a "disappointing 30,000 copies". In 2003, Big Noyd returned with his second album, Only The Strong. This album, just like his debut, had many Mobb Deep-related features. Noyd attributes the lackluster sales to Landspeed Records filing for bankruptcy (which became Traffic Entertainment Group) in an unrelated lawsuit, just as the album was being released. In 2004, Big Noyd released his third album, On the Grind, also featuring many guest-spots by Mobb Deep-related artists. The album was released independently through Monopolee Records, which Noyd helped to found and released under his full control, preventing issues that happened with Landspeed and Tommy Boy Records. He founded Noyd Inc. in 2007.
