DJ Scratch (Hip-Hop DJ & Producer)
DJ Scratch is a renowned DJ and producer who has been nominated for three Grammys and 40+ Gold and Platinum Awards. Born in New York as George Spivey, he won the New Music Seminar Battle for World Supremacy DJ Championship in 1988 and then went on tour with Run-D.M.C.. During the tour Scratch and Jam Master J became friends and it was under JMJ's mentorship that Scratch developed his style of showmanship and honed his performance skills. At JMJ's recommendation, EPMD hired Scratch when they needed a DJ with flair. By 1989, DJ Scratch was the official EPMD DJ and by 1992 he was part of the Hitsquad, a collective of Hip-Hop artists associated with EPMD, including Redman, K-Solo, Hurricane G, and Das EFX. Scratch is not only a DJ but a producer and has produced tracks for EPMD, 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J, and many more. He was also the resident DJ for various national TV shows including BET's "Rap City: Tha Basement," was featured in films including Spike Lee's Bamboozled, and was named a Hip-Hop Icon in 2006 by The Source Magazine.moreless
