DJ Imperial JayCee first played records in the parks back in 1974. The world of Disco had created a career for DJ Kool Herc, a hero in JayCee's Bronx neighborhood, which inspired him to take out records in the local park to entertain people. In 1977, he officially joined Herc's crew of DJs just as the world of Hip Hop was being formed. JayCee focused on making music to move people, to inspire dancing and to rock a party! During those early days, he latched onto a song that has forever been tied to his musical performances, "Good Times!"
