DJ Tendaji Lathan has been a fixture in the L.A. club scene for the last ten years. He got his start DJing back in 1992 while attending college in the Bay Area. Upon returning to Los Angeles, it wasn't long before Tendaji began making his mark spinning at various clubs and events. After paying his dues in the late 90s, things began to take off for Tendaji in the new millennium. In the summer of 2001 Tendaji toured with Cedric the Entertainer on his national comedy tour. He would take the stage and spin a short set to get the crowd hyped before Cedric took the stage. This lead to various gigs spinning at A-List events. In 2002, Tendaji returned to the Bay Area to DJ the Def Poetry Jam stage production which was based on the hit HBO series. After a short but very successful run in San Francisco, Def Poetry Jam made its debut on Broadway in NYC. The show ran for 10 months and won a Tony Award in 2003. While in New York, Tendaji DJ'd at many different parties and events, many of which were associated with Def Jam Records and Phat Farm Clothing. Tendaji soon returned home to Los Angeles, and has been doing high-end events on a regular basis ever since.
