Say Lord Jazz hit me one time In front of any B boy or girl, and you will hear Make it funky! This is now 20+ years DJ Lord Jazz has been spinning records on his mighty turntables. The Cleveland-native DJ Lord Jazz met with Newark, NJ's Doitall and Mr. Funke in college as Dj Lord Jazz was looking for mc’s to form a group.He met with Doitall and then Mr.Funke at Shaw University in North Carolina. In 1989 the legendary hip hop group The Lords of the Underground was formed. Though their name might imply violent gangsta rap, the Lords of the Underground match socially conscious raps with hard-hitting beats. A friend of Lord Jazz (Derek Jackson)told him to form the group and he would introduce the group to legendary producer Marley Marl, who later invited them to record at his studio(House of Hitz) with help from K-Def.
Before their debut album (Here Come the Lords) even appeared, the Lords placed three hit singles (Psycho, Funky Child, Chief Rocka) on the rap charts. By the end of the year, the Lords received an award from BET as best rap group of the year. Keepers of the Funk, released a year later, kept the momentum going, and there was a five-year wait before the third album Resurrection dropped in 1999. “Where are the Lords?” people would say. The Lords did not separate, Lord Jazz decided to set up in Paris, France. Very quickly, he managed to be adopted by the whole French hip hop community through projects with the HH crew (Cut Killers crew),Lord Kossity and K Special.He also placed a weekly radio show on Generations Fm called “The Connection”where he blessed Parisian hip hoppers with great music and special guests along with hosting on the mic as well.LordJazz has since moved on from Generations and now does his weekly show on the internet www.conspiracyuk.com,www.lordgang.com and Marley Marls"Future Flavas online" a fresh online internet station,"I love the freedom I have on this show and I do it right from my studio"Jazz says.
In France, no DJ can spin turntables and rock the crowd with the mic as Lord Jazz does! His technical skills and a pure selection transform his sets in original hip hop masterpieces. No surprise to find Lord Jazz on the line-ups of massive events in France and Europe. After collaborating on many production projects(The latest being Passi and Les Salgos), Lord Jazz and his brother have now decided to bring a new contribution to the hip hop movement by creating their own label, Premium Records.We should see the release of Jazz’s first solo project “The Plain Dealer”on Premium Records distributed by Believe Distribution with exclusive instrumentals and featurings,(Jeru da Damaja,Lotug,Ed Og,Vinnie Paz,Phantasm,Joe Bananas,Senica,Aarophat,Ike Turnah) etc as well as the release of a LOTUG DVD. “I’m gonna use the same formula that got us here,Lyrics ,Attitude ,Music and Performance “Jazz says.He and LOTUG are currently in the studio with super producer 9th wonder and Marley Marl for an up and coming album in 2011 to celebrate 20 years in the business.
