Bigz's official remix of I Just Want the Paper is taken from his new mixtape Quantum Leap, both of which are available to download now. "I Just Want the Paper" samples Notorious B.I.G. and features some of the best of UK hip-hop, including Chipmunk, S.A.S' Mega and Mayhem, G Frsh, Sincere and Smiler.
Nigerian-born and London-raised, Bigz first released his debut singles, "Cor Blimey" and "This is How We Do" back in 2006; just before he was due to release his debut album, his older brother and both of Bigz's business partners, Tayo 'ESQ' Badru and Olu 'Father' Olabagju all died in the space of a year, causing Bigz to take an extended hiatus from the music industry.
While on hiatus, Bigz set up his own record label, Fly Boy Records and his phrase "Flygerian". In his own words, Bigz explains, "Flygerian is my life. It's what I live by. Its more than a word, it's a lifestyle, its being confident and respecting all Nigerians who came before me. Music is just the start; I'm going become a fashion icon."
Since its debut on Radio 1Xtra's Mistajam's show, I Just Want the Paper has got a phenomenal response.
Bigz is also supporting N-Dubz on their nationwide tour on the following dates:
Wednesday 20th July - O2 Academy, Oxford
Thursday 21st July- O2 Academy, Liverpool
Saturday 30th July - Scarborough Open Air Theatre
