Job Title

DJ Evil E was thirteen years old when he heard the pioneering artist Grandmaster Flash, which inspired E to get his own turntable rig. As a young DJ, Evil E was inspired by a performance in Los Angeles by Ice T. As it turned out the two would meet and become collaborators on many musical projects over the next forty years. One of his proudest moments in his long career was working with Ice T on the title track for the movie “Colors.” Evil E’s rapping skills can be heard on the Ice T track “Pimp Behind the Wheels” on the Home Invasion album, which was released in 1993.
