DJ Rectangle is an American DJ/Turntablist and Hip hop/R&B record producer.

DJ Rectangle first won the U.S DMC championship in 1993 and in the same year became the official DJ for West Coast rapper Warren G.

Commencing his world tour with platinum recording artist Warren G, DJ Rectangle demonstrated his skills to the international audience through extensive concert dates as well as television appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Jon Stewart Show, Late Night with David Letterman, MTV Spring Break, and London’s Top of the Pops. Rectangle has also toured with the likes of R Kelly and Jermaine Dupri.

To further establish his place in history, he began releasing his legendary mixtapes. Rectangle was the first DJ to integrate freestyles from major recording artists into his mixes. Beyond that, he released battle records to contribute back to the DJ culture for those who wanted to follow in his footsteps. These battle records have been used by many successive DJs to win multiple World Championships.

DJ Rectangle then went on to become a Grammy Award nominated producer working with the likes of Eminem, Dirt Nasty, Funkdoobiest, The Luniz, The Whoridas, and Xzibit. He has produced tracks used on Television shows such as E! True Hollywood Story, Saturday Night Live and the Super Bowl XLIII as well as Major Motion Picture soundtracks such as Set It Off, Fakin' da Funk and 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin'.

In 2008 DJ Rectangle received a Grammy Award nomination for his extensive production work on Latin sensation La Mala Rodríguez's Malamarismo album.
