In case you missed it the first time (originally posted in 2009)…

***BIG shouts to my homie Rob over at Southern Hospitality and the whole crew. I’m honoured to be a part of this series. I won’t say anymore you can read what they wrote***

The ‘Twelve 12″s’ series is back once again, for the (rather coveted) twelfth instalment, and this time representing for Toronto it’s – Big Jacks!

Big Jacks has been rocking spots all over the U.S. and Canada for the last decade, as well as holding it down on T-Dot radio every week, bringing his love and knowledge of music to the world. He’s also opened up for some of the greatest names in hip-hop – A Tribe Called Quest, Dj Premier, Krs, Pete Rock to name a few and has toured alongside Jigga’s current DJ Neil Armstrong (another SH Fave we may add). Not only that but he even DJs and programs the music for a large women’s clothing chain! Now that is ‘versatility’ (don’t worry, you’ll get the reference when you’ve copped the mix). Anyway, I’m sure you’re all familiar with his work after the incredible mix with DJ Eleven ‘Great Minds’ that we featured here a couple of weeks ago, which finds Big Jacks tearing through the 80s groove with an ear and skills few have. In fact, an ability that comes from not only a genuine feel for music but years of digging through the racks to find those absolute gems, as I’m sure rap historians out there will appreciate after taking one look at the cover! As well as the aforementioned Nyborn (still my most wanted rap 12″!) you’ll find some more random, but classically dope records like Sir Ibu’s ‘I’m The Peacemaker’ and ‘Bizzie Boyz ‘Hold The Lafta’. This is heaven to people who, like me, love that late 80s/early 90s rap sound and a perfect kick off to the week. Incredible stuff.

In case you missed the first eleven instalments from myself (Rob), Superix, James Lebens, DJ Ayres, DJ Dub, DJ Hudson, Matt Evans, Spin Doctor, Matthew Africa, Cosmo Baker & DJ Eleven – you can still catch them here and watch out for another ‘Twelve 12s coming very soon…
