As an integral member of not one, but two pioneering Left Coast Hip-Hop collectives; N.W.A. and the Posse, as well as a pre-Ni99az Wit Attitudes Ice Cube led C.I.A. [Cru’ in Action!], triple threat – rapper/deejay/producer – Sir Jinx is a self-professed “West Wing Legend.”
Over the course of a 25-plus year career, the renowned multi-platinum South Central Los Angeles native has logged in countless hours of studio time crafting classic hit records for a multitude of rap and R&B luminaries such as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre (who also happens to be his cousin) Kool G. Rap, Xzibit, Kurupt, Too $hort, Jayo Felony, Yo-Yo, WC and the Maad Circle, Coolio, as well as the late, great icons Teena Marie & Gerald Levert.
In July 2011, Sir Jinx released the exceedingly overdue and stellar collection, General Population, with contributions from the aforementioned Jayo Felony [“Rime Scene”], Roscoe/DPGC [“Bump Bump” & “In My Footsteps”], Devin The Dude [“Gather My Thoughts”], Butch Cassidy [“I Don’t Take You Serious” & “That Type of Girl”], Ras Kass, Rodney-O & Bone Crusher [“The Time Is Now”] and protégés Tri Star & Dat Boi Hop, with outside production courtesy of The Futuristiks (Eminem, Redman), Thayod Ausar (50 Cent, Xzibit) Jesse West (Bad Boy, KRS-1) and Trevor Lawrence (Dr. Dre, Eminem).
Today, Sir Jinx, in association with his Coastal Contra Music Group venture, has returned with a brand new, star-studded musical extravaganza, Sir Jinx…Presents The West Wing.
