DJ Aladdin

DJ Aladdin’s musical career began in the late 1970s with a wooden turntable from his uncle and another from his aunt as well as a mixer from Radio Shack. He watched as Hip-Hop exploded in New York and wanted to bring his own unique sounds to his audiences in his neighborhood of Compton, near Los Angeles. His first major battle was with one of his mentors, Tony G. Their battle became more of a showcase, which led him to further opportunities. One of those opportunities was producing the single “New Jack Hustler” on the soundtrack for New Jack City. Aladdin also became a member of Ice-T’s Rhyme Syndicate crew and produced records for Ice-T as well as for Lord Finesse.
