DJ Design comes from the same time and place in Hip Hip history as Peanut Butter Wolf – from the south San Francisco Bay Area, where rap music in the mid-1980s could occasionally be heard from low rider mini trucks, bad kids’ bedrooms in the suburbs, and the occasional weekend house party right before the cops show up. Design used to steal bikes, he tells us. Bicycle theft led to scratching, and scratching led to beats. During the year 2000, in protest of a Sleazenation Magazine article that dissed his shoes, DJ Design staged a six-month-long death hoax. When Redman lamented his loss on an episode of MTV Cribs, he decided to come out of hiding. He brought with him a 12″ single called Sparkdala, a battle record called Hookie and Baba Flakes Breaks, and a hip hop group called Foreign Legion. He now lives in San Francisco working with Look Records and Foreign Legion.
