Featuring: DJ Los
D.J. Los is a rap producer, writer and D.J. who has a distinct sound that he has been cultivating since a kid growing up in Detroit. Born April 23, 1972, he developed an interest in music at an early age. He often traveled with his father, Carl “Butch” Small to the Parliament/Funkadelic studio, where his dad did percussion work for the popular 1970s and 80s group.
D. J. Los wasted no time in displaying his talent, earning his first vocal and instrumental credit on Bootsy Collins’ 1979 album “This Boot is Made for Funkin” when he was a mere seven years old. Connecting with rap long before hip-hop dominated the airwaves, he was influenced by many who are now considered the godfathers of rap, like Run D.M.C., L.L. Cool J., Whodini, E.P.M.D. and Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince – all acts featuring a phenomenal DJ.
