Keep an eye out for the coming out of DJJUS.
By no means a newcomer to the music scene Jus has been rapping
and spinning records since he was three. His father a local NYC
area DJ taught Jus how to change records and return them to their
jacket covers. His father then gave Jus two old turntables to
play with around the house. Jus was like a sponge, he mimicked
everything his father did with the turntables and soon he developed
a style of his own. Standing on two milk crates Jus started perfecting
the technique of spinning records. His star was about to shine.
Jus breakout performance at the age of four was at NYC popular radio station
Hot 97 with Ed Lover and Dr. Dre. Jus spun records during the “Morning
Traffic Jam” segment of the show and was an instant hit. Listeners thought
the station was putting on a gimmick. No one could believe a four-year-old
could record the beats like Jus was doing. Callers thought Ed Lover and Dr.
Dre was playing tricks on them. Jus appeared on the radio show a few times
and his popularity led to his own Saturday morning kid oriented radio show
called “The Playground” Jus was the youngest person in the world
with his own radio show.
This led to a tour in Japan playing in front of more than 40,000 fans. Then
Jus performed during half time of the 1996 Super Bowl in San Diego along with
Queen Latifah and the Temptations.
While music is Jus first love he has had a taste of the big and small screens.
Jus appeared in the lead child role in the movie “Music from the Heart” starring
Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Angela Bassett. He later went on to star in
the movie “Prison Song” as Mary J. Bilge’s son. Jus has also
made cameo appearances in various artists’ music videos. His appearance
in Alicia Keys “A Woman’s Worth” video was extremely popular
and well received nationally.
When SoSo Def records and Jermaine Dupre was looking for a DJ to go on tour
with Bow Wow Jus was the answer. Touring with Bow Wow on Scream Tour 2 was
an opportunity of a lifetime. With Bow Wow’s popularity along with the
popularity of B2K Scream Tour 2 sold out all over the country. Jus came in
contact with a lot of influential people in the music industry. He also performed
with Bow Wow during the Miss Teen USA pageant on national television. A lot
of fans had heard of Jus since his earlier days performing on the Apollo and
as part of Biv 10 All Stars but had not seen him perform in a couple of years.
This tour got Jus name back out into the minds and hearts of his growing fans.
When the producers of Scream Tour 3 was put the tour together they decided
to give Jus a chance to perform on his own as the Tour’s DJ. On the road
again with B2K but this time the tour included Mario, Marcus Houston and Nick
Cannon. So KEEP AN EYE OUT for what’s next for this multi talented kid
from Queens, NY.
