Thig is the famous mad hustling genius from the streets of Chicago. Recording under the names Thigahmahjiggee and Sharkula, he's been a fixture in the neighborhoods and on public transit, selling his wares and preaching the hip-hop gospel. But what distinguishes Thig from the pack is ability to translate what he does across social and artistic divides. In addition to the excellent straight up hip-hop work he's done, he's been involved in wide range of genre-crossing projects, including collaborations with Mark DeNardo and features on albums by acts like Pigface and Bagman.
