DJ Jean Raps was born and raised in Pari, São Paulo, and is the youngest of three brothers who are also DJ’s. His uncles were his biggest influence growing up because they used to own all the right equipment and used to play at parties around Canidé, SP. At 15, DJ Jean used to attend raps parties at the Sunset Club in Santana, SP and it was there that he started receiving invitations from many DJ’s such as: DJ Grand Master Duda, DJ Luciano and DJ Dom Black to spin at the famous “Bailes Chic Show”.
However at 41 DJ Jean Raps only plays sporadically at parties and bars around São Paulo. DJ Jean states “What used to be a career now it is just a hobby”.
