Big Time is the only album by Ultra, an American hip hop group composed of Kool Keith and Tim Dog, who had previously collaborated as part of Ultramagnetic MC's. The duo only released one album, which contained a large number of disses towards other rappers. It has been called "the holy Grail of the Kool Keith catalog, owing mostly to its rarity".
