New York-based DJ/rapper DJ Kass was born in New York City in 1987 and grew up in the Bronx. Kass' father was a DJ and he grew up learning the tricks of the trade from his dad before starting to do his own gigs as a teenager.
Before striking out with his own original tracks, he dabbled in remixes as well as continuous mixes of other artists' music which he released on his SoundCloud page. His first original singles began appearing around 2016, when he released the energetic party banger "Tamo Open Yo." The next year a remix of the song surfaced, as well as second single "Los Patrones." In 2018, he dropped his most successful single to date, the spare but fiery "Scooby Doo Pa Pa."
