Jiggy Walker is an African American inmate featured in Oz. Portrayed by rapper LL Cool. J.


"Prisoner number 98W504, Jiggy Walker. Convicted July 12, '98 - Murder in the second degree. Sentence: 28 years, up for parole in 20."

He is a drug dealer sent to Oz for shooting another man to death at a card game. He is a liar and a cheater - shown attempting to cheat victories in two separate card games. When he was seventeen, he previously served an eighteen year sentence at Lardner State Correctional Facility before being sent to Oz.

As soon he arrived in Emerald City, Walker told his sponsor, Bob Rebadow, that he was Governor James Devlin's former crack dealer. When he finds out about it, Kareem Said asks Walker if he would publicly accuse Devlin in exchange for the possibility of release from Oz. Walker accepts and participates in several interviews.

To prove his innocence, Devlin goes to Oz and conducts a media interview where he confronts Walker. After the Governor proves his innocence, Walker admits he lied. Said and Tim McManus ask him why, and he says he don't want to be forgotten by his family and maybe they would visit him for a little longer if he was famous. He is moved to Unit B and is never seen again.

His reputation as a big talker is briefly mentioned by Augustus Hill during a conversation he has with Malcolm Coyle and Kenny Wangler.
