Biography

Philadelphia, United States (1996 – present)

Jedi Mind Tricks (JMT) is a hip hop group formed in 1996 with two members from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and one from Camden, New Jersey. The group was founded by two high school friends rapper Vinnie Paz (Vincenzo Luvineri) and producer / DJ Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind (Kevin Baldwin). In 1999 the New Jersey rapper Jus Allah (James Bostick) joined the group to record the 2nd studio album by JMT, Violent by Design but left shortly after for reasons that remain unexplained. The track “The Rebuilding” (2006) marked his unofficial return to JMT since the split, but made a full fledged return aside Vinnie Paz for the 6th studio album, A History of Violence (2008).

DJ Kwestion is also a part of the group, mainly scratching choruses on the turntable. Kwestion (or Kwes) is also a part of the group Skratch Makaniks. Kwestion was a replacement for JMT’s previous tour DJ, Drew Dollars, who is no longer affiliated with the group.

JMT has collaborations with both regional MCs and rap veterans, including GZA, Kool G Rap, 7L & Esoteric, Sean Price, Ras Kass, Canibus, Percee P, Killah Priest, Louis Logic, R.A. the Rugged Man, Tragedy Khadafi, and Ill Bill. The group has sold 250,000 albums in the United States and 300,000 albums worldwide, all of which were released independently.

    Albums without Stoupe are boring as hell, new one is solid as fuck. Sick beats.

    Shoutouts to everyone who down-voted all of the classic pics of Vinnie, Jus and Stoupe for some reason and left us with a bunch of wack pictures of DJ Kwestion [2]

    Violent By Design and Servants In Heaven, Kings In Hell are unfuckable. But with saying that, you can't go wrong with any Jedi Mind Tricks album. It goes without saying, but The Thief And The Fallen KILLS.

    The album is solid, but even if it would be horrible I wouldn't care, because I'm so happy to hear Stoupe on the production.

    Оправдал ожидания. Вах-вах, наконец-то никаких пищалок, свистелок, залупы от того же стубангаса. Все гладенько и приятно.

    Great hip hop-artist. A History of Violence is my favorite from their disco

    Nafister, huge if true! Stoupe is a very important part of JMT, no doubt about it. Some of the sickest beats out there. Although I actually enjoyed Violence Begets Violence a lot to be quite honest.
