When examining the career of the iconic and legendary West Coast multi-platinum producer Sir Jinx you’ll notice that he has several key and historical moments, including being one of the first to produce a collaboration record between the California cities of Oakland and Los Angeles with the Too Short and Ice Cube record “Ain’t Nothin’ But A Word To Me”, helping to usher in the first female west coast emcee with Yo-Yo, putting together the first collaboration between the West, East and South regions with the skillfully-produced “Two To The Head” with Kool G Rap, Ice Cube, Scarface, and Bushwick Bill; as well as even producing the entire Kool G Rap album Live and Let Die and being credited with being the first west coast producer to produce an entire east coast project, and of course producing the hardest diss track of all time with Ice Cube’s “No Vaseline”.
Producing classic albums and songs for some of the most instrumental artists in Hip-Hop like Ice Cube, Kool G Rap, Yo-Yo, Ice-T, Xzibit and numerous others, Sir Jinx has and continues to be an indisputable and significant part of Hip-Hop history.
From his early, and pivotal, C.I.A group work with Ice Cube leading to monumental classics like AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted and Death Certificate, Sir Jinx and his roots in Hip-Hop are irrefutably embedded.
Happy Birthday, Sir Jinx!
