Big Scoob - On Me Ft. Tech N9ne

Strange Music’s Big Scoob Announces Dynamic Duality Album And Drops "On Me" Feat. Tech N9ne

Due May 25, The Soul-Searching Project Features The Kansas City Rapper Examining His Good & Evil Sides

 
After recovering from a potentially fatal medical situation, Big Scoob is making a triumphant return to music with his Duality album. Due May 25 via Strange Music,Duality features the Kansas City rapper taking a brutally honest look at his life after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.
 
“My circumstances led me to the Duality thing,” Big Scoob reveals. “On the intro to my album, it says, ‘Inside of me, there’s two dogs. One mean and evil, and one good. They’re constantly fighting. When I’m asked which one will win, my reply is, ‘The one I feed the most.’ My album cover is saying, ‘I can still get on that nonsense. That’s still in me. That side of me is not dead, but I would rather be on this enlightened path.’”
 
Big Scoob masterfully explores both sides of his personality throughout Duality. On the spiritual side, he details his quest for attaining inner peace on “Live Right Now,” which features emerging soulstress Auni Saxton. Elsewhere, he teams with Fat Joe for the heartfelt “Unbreakable,” where both rappers pay homage to their respective wives for being in their corners.
 
“With all the nonsense I’ve been through, the only face I’ve seen for the last 20-some odd years has been my wife’s face,” Big Scoob details. “All the stuff I’ve put her through and that I’ve done, that’s the only face I’ve seen. She’s the only constant in my life.”
 
On the street side, Big Scoob delivers the high-energy “On Me” and the rugged “Trap” with B-Legit and Boogieman. “Say What” finds him saluting his crew. These songs are key components to Big Scoob’s musical and personal DNA. “It’s truth,” Big Scoob comments. “That’s who I am. If I’m talking to the homies and need to pull up in a certain area, that’s who they know. That’s who I need to be in that certain situation.”
 
Now, with Duality, Big Scoob has returned to the type of hard-hitting and introspective music that has made him one of rap’s best unsung artists for the last decade-plus. “I’m a provider and a hustler,” he says. “That’s what I do. I just had to stop doubting myself and get up and get it.”
