DJ JS-1 recently dropped his first single, “Ridiculous.” Teaming with OC and Pharoahe Monch, the two New York emcees’ verses meshed with JS-1’s beat to create a track that had listeners buzzing. Now, JS-1 returns with the remix. Featuring a brand new, old school, synth-chopped beat courtesy of JS-1 and a surprise guest verse from another legendary New York emcee, Masta Ace, the remix proves to be just as ridiculous as the original. “NO SELLOUT” (Ground Original 2) is now available via Fat Beat Records.
As a member of the world famous Rock Steady Crew, partner of Rahzel (the world’s #1 beatboxer), and occasional tour DJ for KRS-One, DJ JS-1 has toured the planet with over 1,000 shows in more than 32 countries and hundreds of cities.
