TaJuan Akeem Perry (born 7 May 1975), better known by his stage name Big Noyd, is an American rapper from the Queensbridge projects in Queens, New York. He is closely affiliated with duo Mobb Deep, and he is featured on all of their albums with the exception of Blood Money. He made his debut on the song "Stomp 'Em Out" from Mobb Deep's 1993 debut album Juvenile Hell, but he gained more attention from the song "Give Up the Goods (Just Step)" from their second album The Infamous. He later stated that he received his first record contract, for $300,000, because of the verse he performed on that song.

His debut album, Episodes of a Hustla, was released in 1996 on Tommy Boy Records. Noyd was incarcerated at the time of its release. In 2003, he returned with his second album, Only the Strong, on Landspeed Records. The album, just like his debut, featured many Mobb Deep-related appearances. Noyd attributes the poor sales due to Landspeed filing for bankruptcy at the time of the album's release. He subsequently founded the label Noyd Inc. in 2007 to release his own music without label issues.
