Ya boy Tejuan Perry aka Rapper Noyd aka Big Noyd has been the most loyal Mobb Deep soldier of all time, having appeared on everything from Juvenile Hell all the way up to H.N.I.C. 2. His video appearances have been a lot less prolific however, considering he’s dropped eight solo releases on top of appearing on most of the Mobb LP’s (although he was MIA for the whole G-Unit era for some reason). If not for his trip to the pokey when his Episodes Of A Hustla dropped in ’96 we would have been blessed with visuals for “Recognize and Realize” and “The Usual Suspects”. Let’s take a look at all of the videos he’s blessed in a rapping capacity, because if Unkut doesn’t do it, who will?
Mobb Deep feat. Big Noyd - “Give Up The Goods (Just Step)”
This was Noyd’s “Life’s A Bitch” break-out moment, which no doubt helped earn him a solo deal with Loud.
Mobb Deep feat. Noyd - “The Learning (Burn)”
Easily the most expensive video appearance involving Rapper Noyd, as he activates full-on Goonie mode to rep the QBC.
Prodigy feat. Big Noyd - “It’s Nothing”
Possibly one of the last tracks that these two have released together, but it’s just like old times.
Big Noyd – “Things Done Changed”
KOCH records ponied up a few bucks for Noyd’s first solo video, with a beat from M.O.P.‘s Fizzy Womack.
Rakim feat. Mobb Deep & Big Noyd - “Hoodlum”
Notice that Rakim couldn’t be bothered leaving the studio for the video shoot? This is what they mean when they use the term “phoning it in”. Noyd raps for the kids with a cameo from his daughter when she was but a toddler.
Bounty Killa feat. Mobb Deep and Rappin’ Noyd – “Deadly Zone”
The producers of the Blade soundtrack tried to get cute and listed dude as “Rappin’ Noyd” instead of Rapper Noyd, while the video itself is an example of how not to use green screen over the Midnight Express theme.
Infamous Mobb feat. Big Noyd and Prodigy - “Killa Queens”
Appropriately shot on location with extra Rap Hands action for this Infamous Mobb All-Stars track.
Big Noyd – “Light Up The Night”
From the start of 2013, complete with a Havoc beat, this looks like this was shot in Noyd’s current homebase out in Florida, but the palm trees have done nothing to tone down his trademark anti-social raps.
DJ Skizz feat. Hannibal Stax, Big Noyd & Panchi - “Triboro Thoro”
His most recent appearance, showing and proving for his old Queens neighbor DJ Skizz for his first production album.
Bonus: Let us never forget his method acting performance in the Murda Muzik movie, in particular the scene where he rolls up to the pub on his bike at the 5:20 mark, which some local knuckleheads then use to toss a brick into the back window of some broads car…
