Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG NEW YORK, NY -- After trailblazing around the globe numerous times with Gang Starr as a core member of the Gang Starr Foundation, Big Shug, who has appeared on Gang Starr’s classics such as 1994’s Hard To Earn “F.A.L.A.,” 1998’s Moment Of Truth “The Militia” and 2003’s Gold-certified The Ownerz “Capture” (Militia Pt.3), follow’s up his 2005 debut, Who’s Hard, with his sophomore LP---Streetchamp.

Fans of Gang Starr and Big Shug have been waiting anxiously for this de facto team member to re-emerge and Shug answers the street’s call with Streetchamp, which will be released on July 17th, 2007 courtesy of Babygrande Records.

Staying true to the Gang Starr Foundation formula, Big Shug recreates his indelible bond with DJ Premier on Streetchamp with three tracks, including the street-banger “It Just Don’t Stop.” For round two, however, Shug also taps rising producer MoSS (AZ, Joell Ortiz, Sean Price, Ghostface Killah as well as contributions on forthcoming LP’s from Sheek Louch, Red Cafe) to guide his sonic tour de force. Streetchamp also features guest appearances from Termanology and Sean Price and Infamous Mobb’s Big Twins with the latter two joining forces on the massive posse cut “Leg Breakers.”

Be sure to also check out Big Shug as he holds down co-hosting duties on DJ Premier’s Sirius Satellite Radio show “Live From HeadQCourterz” every Friday night from midnight-2AM.
