  Biography  

G-Wiz, like many East Coast hip hop producers, began as a DJ spinning at basement parties and small clubs in Long Island, Queens and NYC in the mid 1980s.

He made the transition to record producer in the early 1990s, when he handed fellow Long Islander Chuck D a tape full of beats. The hip hop production team, The Bomb Squad, had silently gone their separate ways after Fear of a Black Planet and no new Public Enemy album was imminent. After hearing G-Wiz’s music, Chuck D immediately planned to do an EP with G-Wiz being the sole producer. The two had such chemistry, the original 8 cuts soon turned into 12 and Apocalypse 91... The Enemy Strikes Black was born. Apocalypse 91: The Enemy Strikes Black, as of 2007, is Public Enemy's greatest selling album to date, selling close to 2 million copies and spawning the hits "Can't Truss It" and "Shut Em Down."

G-Wiz went on to produce the artists: Janet Jackson, Aerosmith, U2, Busta Rhymes, Rakim, Run-D.M.C., Method Man, Redman, Ludacris, Twista, KRS-One, Bell Biv Devoe, Peter Gabriel, Lisa Stansfield, Aaron Hall, Big Daddy Kane, Anthrax and Sinéad O'Connor. In 1992, G-Wiz was introduced to the world of film when he composed the score for the Paramount Pictures film, Juice starring Tupac Shakur, as well as producing on the film’s certified platinum soundtrack. Since then, G-Wiz has contributed songs and score to Spike Lee's He Got Game, Bulworth with Warren Beatty, Paramount Pictures Mad City, Fox Television's King of the Hill, and a collaboration with Chuck D to create the main title theme to Fox's Dark Angel starring Jessica Alba
