DJ FUZE BIOGRAPHY

DJ FUZE is a hip-hop DJ / Music Producer known mostly for his work in the early 1990s with the multi-platinum, P-Funk inspired rap group, “digital underground.” Fuze co-produced several songs on digital underground’s first major release entitled “Sex Packets.” Most notable of these songs is the bay area classic “Freaks of the Industry,” which still receives regular rotation in clubs and on urban radio stations throughout Northern California. Fuze was the DJ for digital underground during the groups entire platinum period, and thus toured with the likes of Public Enemy, Big Daddy Kane, L.L. Cool J, Naughty By Nature, Kid and Play, Queen Latifah, Third Base, 2 Live Crew, Ice Cube, Ice T, Too Short, Heavy D and The Boys, The D.O.C., EPMD, BBD, etc. FUZE also appeared alongside digital underground in the Hollywood cult film flop entitled “Nothing But Trouble,” which starred Dan Akroyd, John Candy, Chevy Chase, and Demi Moore.

DJ FUZE also collaborated with the late superstar Tupac Shakur on his debut album entitled “2PACALYPSE NOW.” In addition to naming the album, FUZE produced the revolutionary song “Violent,” an immediate Oakland “trunk hit,” due to its bass heavy, dancehall inspired production, (Junior Reeds classic “Pirate Anthem”), as well as its revolutionary lyrics, which described a suicidal shoot-out with corrupt police. DJ FUZE appeared several times alongside Tupac in the award winning documentary film “Tupac Resurection,” as well as in Tupac’s first two music videos, including “Trapped” and “Brenda’s Got A Baby”.

DJ FUZE was also one half of the group “Raw Fusion” along with fellow DU member Money-B. In 1991, the two scored a minor bay area radio hit entitled “Throw Your Hands In The Air,” which was the first single from their debut album “Live From The Styleetron.” The video, which featured cameo appearances by rappers Tupac and Saafir, was the first major video production by now legendary directors “The Hughes Brothers” who later directed “Menace To Society,” “Dead Presidents,” “American Pimp,” and “From Hell.”

In 1994, DJ FUZE began working with the now legendary Oakland duo “The Luniz,” and produced three songs on their debut multi-platinum release entitled “Operation Stackola.” Fuze toured internationally with the LUNIZ during their platinum period, supporting their smash hit “I Got Five On It”, and thus shared arena stages with the likes of The Notorious BIG, Jodeci, Mary J Blige, Puff Daddy, Missy Elliot, Timbaland, Genuine, etc.

DJ FUZE also produced a minor Bay Area hit entitled “Can You Feel Me” for legendary Oakland rapper Dru Down in 1996. Dru Down’s “Can You Feel Me” was actually a copy tune of the Fat Boys classic, “Can You Feel It,” which was produced by Kurtis Blow.
