Young Guru

Jay-Z’s GRAMMY®-nominated sound engineer and DJ

Hailed as “The Sound of New York," Young Guru is probably best known for shaping some of the biggest talent in hip-hop as a sound engineer, producer and A&R man for the acclaimed Roc-A-Fella Records and Def Jam Recordings. He’s Jay-Z’s trusted right-hand man in the studio, mixing 10 of his 11 albums and earning multiple GRAMMY® nominations and shout-outs on Jay- Z’s tracks. Guru has also worked with Beyoncé, Kanye West, Drake, Talib Kweli and more. Influenced by early Hip Hop, Rock & Roll, Electro, House and Soul music, Young Guru’s skillset has definitively branded him as a true sound genius and orchestrator.
