DJ Bazooka Joe made a name for himself in the late 90’s/2000’s with his ‘Truck Jewls’ mixtapes which are highly sought after even today for the abundant quality of underground hip-hop contained on each and every mix. Joe has also had a successful DJ career working the NYC club and lounge circuit and even serving as tour DJ for Native Tongue legend, Dres of Black Sheep. Today, Joe’s focus is on production with credits that include Dres, Jarobi of Tribe Called Quest, Craig G, Sadat X, Monsta Island Czars & AG to name a few.
In 2009 after producing a full album with New Orleans’ MC, Impulss, Joe hooked up with Prospek and The Guerrilla Publishing Company and a creative connection was instantly sparked which naturally evolved into a strong artistic collaboration. Joe has NY boom bap in his DNA and after releasing some well received projects over the last few years including his critically acclaimed debut LP, “The Slang Parade”, he is moving full steam ahead with major contributions on various GPNYC projects as well as his collaborative collective with Prospek called “Cold School”.
In addition to DJing and producing, Bazooka Joe owns the media production company SounDecisions.
