DJ Evil E
Evil E is best known as Ice-T's DJ. Ice-T brought him in to his production company, Rhyme Syndicate in the mid 1980s.

He appears on the spoken word track "Evil E-What About Sex?" on the Ice T's OG: Original Gangster album, and raps on Ice T's track "Pimp Behind the Wheels" on the Home Invasion album. He was in a group called Spinmasters with Hen Gee, another member of Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate.
DJ Special Blend
DJ Special Blend
The focus of DJSB's talent and focus is more on making music than just playing it. He is a musician first, then a DJ. However, being a DJ to him means more than just the playback of music of others. DJSB would rather create with a turntable than just push play. This includes scratching, beat juggling, production, live drum sequencing, mixing genres and including these techniques in his own production. His background in music technology, action sports and hip hop culture allows him to create that unique DJSB sound, which is a hybrid of life experiences and mastery of craft.
