The World Famous Beat Junkies are one of the most revered and influential DJ crews in hip hop. Here’s a short documentary that breaks down the origin of the crew, spotlights each member, and celebrates two decades on the turntables. Word is, they’re getting ready to go on a world wide tour (US, Europe, and Asia), and we’ll be sure to post dates when they become available. I remember seeing J Rocc earlier this year and the shit was fuckin’ amazing, so I definitely need to see the whole crew in action. Word, I just seen the documentary twice.

The World Famous Beat Junkies, comprised of members J-Rocc, DJ Babu, D-Styles, DJ Rhettmatic, DJ What?!, Mr. Choc, Icy Ice, Curse, DJ Shortkut, Melo-D, Symphony and DJ Havik have been putting in work on the turntables since they were first established in 1992. Known internationally as the premiere DJ crew, their longevity is a testament to their immense musical talents. In celebration of the legendary Beat Junkies, LRG presents For the Record – a short documentary profiling the collective with contributions from the likes of A Trak, Q Bert and Peanut Butter Wolf – with DJ Jazzy Jeff commenting that “there are no DJ’s out today that haven’t been influenced by the Beat Junkies at all.”
