About the DJ
You’ve said you think you know Fin the DJ, but you can’t quite remember from where. That is, unless you are hip hop. Finian St. Omer, aka Fin the DJ started out on the music scene as the emcee, Chaundon.
Growing up in the South Bronx, constantly surrounded by hip hop, Chaundon began writing rhymes at the age of 13. As he attended Adlai E. Stevenson High School, his first performances were rapping in front of other students in the cafeteria and hallways. After transferring from Barber-Scotia College in Concord, North Carolina to North Carolina Central University in Durham in 1999, he came into contact with members of Little Brother, and became a central figure in establishing the reputation of the Justus League.
He also appeared on L.E.G.A.C.Y.‘s Project Mayhem, The Away Team‘s National Anthem, Little Brother’s The Chittlin’ Circuit, The Chitlin Circuit 1.5, The Minstrel Show, DJ Drama Separate but Equal, their latest mixtape with DJ Mick Boogie, And Justus for All, the Hall of Justus’compilation Soldiers of Fortune, Darien Brockington‘s Somebody to Love, Median’s Median’s Relief, Cesar Comanche‘s Squirrel and the Aces Sean Price‘s Jesus Price Supastar, 9th Wonder‘s The Dream Merchant Vol. 2 and Torae‘s Daily Conversation.
In 2008, he released his debut album, Carnage. The album included guest appearances from several other rappers, including Little Brother, 9th Wonder, Jean Grae, and Sean Price. He also released the Black Dynamite LP.
