Song Spotlight: Jigg's "Big Faces" Is a Synthy Tribute to the Benjamin

Over the past year since releasing his strip club friendly "Peek-A-Boo" in 2009, Jigg has been working on his High Grade project, which is rumored to be a mixtape, then later confirmed to be an album packed with original material. The Liberty City native has received a great response to the freestyles he's released lately, taking on Drake's "Over," Clipse's "Grindin," and Alicia Keys' "Unthinkable."

From online and street buzz alone, Jigg was able to take the last couple months and kick off a promo tour through the Southeast. Its all in a day's work when you're an artist. The key is to get yourself out there.

"Big Faces" is Jigg's latest single. He actually started circulating the record out to various DJs back in January or so. But after a good eight or nine months of hype, Jigg finally decided to release the song online to give everyone a good sample of what to expect from his upcoming release. Apparently, "Big Faces" is a tribute to the almighty Benjamin. The synthesizer-based beat compliments Jigg's aggressive spit-fire flow for another street-heavy record.
