New Signing: DJ Yella | News | MN2S

We are excited to welcome legendary hip hop producer DJ Yella to the MN2S booking agency DJ roster.

 

Alongside Dr Dre, Eazy E, Ice Cube, MC Ren and Arabian Prince, DJ Yella was one of the key members of NWA, arguably the most influential hip hop group of all time. NWA’s politically-charged brand of gangsta rap inspired and influenced generations of West Coast rappers, including the likes of Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar.
 

 
DJ Yella’s contribution to the NWA legacy came in the form of his fantastic production work on all three NWA studio albums, and Eazy E’s debut album, all of which he co-produced with Dr Dre.

After the breakup of NWA, DJ Yella produced swathes of great work from JJ Fad, HWA, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Eazy E, whose final album he oversaw.

In 1996 DJ Yella released his debut solo album One Mo Nigga ta Go, where he handled both production and vocals for the first time over an entire album. After that he retired from music to pursue a career as a director of adult films. He was a prolific pornographer, producing over 300 films over 12 years.

In 2011 DJ Yella returned to music, releasing another solo album and honing his chops as a live DJ. After the successful release of the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton last year and NWA’s imminent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, interest in DJ Yella is at an all time high. For a DJ set from a hip hop legend, DJ Yella is the perfect choice. MN2S is delighted to have him on board.
