About DJ J Scrilla

Scrilla has carved out a career as a critically acclaimed underground hip-hop record producer, crypto-artist, audio engineer and DJ.  He has deep roots in both the traditional music industry and the blockchain industry. 

Currently, J-Scrilla is working on releasing new music with K-Beta, an album from the duo entitled “Bad Rap,” a new solo album- “Proof Of Work”-  featuring Uptown XO, Conway The MAchine, K-Beta, Flee Lord and scores more,  and an instrumental album which are all due to be released on Man Bites Dog Records this fall.

Additionally, a new album from the duo formerly known as Guns-N-Butter (Chops and Scrilla,) is in the works with Griselda’s own, Benny The Butcher and will be released late summer 2019.

Scrilla first officially spoke about cryptoart at a Government blockchain meetups in DC. A year later he spoke at the now legendary Rare Digital Art Festival in New York, runs an Art On The Blockchain Meet-Up group in Washington D.C., and has delivered presentations titled “Intro To Crypto Art and Crypto Music” in Atlanta, Baltimore, and DC

Scrilla is also the creator and manager of one of the most prominent memes in the Bitcoin space – DJPEPE – the first ever Bitcoin meme to escape the blockchain and teach humans cryptoart.

Additionally, Scrilla is working on a series of crypto music projects that are part video, part song and part art, with some members of the blockchain community. He released “Cant Smoke A Bitcoin” featuring Peter Schiff and Chris Derose in 2018, which also featured the first ever Proof Of Share token “CANTSMOKEBTC” issued through Counterparty (XCP.) 

Scrilla began making cryptoart through the Rare Pepe Trading channels in 2016 and has since become one of the most prolific artists in the blockchain space, having issued (and sold) more than 40 cryptoart pieces. You can also check out some of his pieces here.  He has over 20 years of DJ and record producing experience and has carved out productions with hip hop legends such as Cassidy, Raekwon, Mobb Deep, Nipsey Hussle and hundreds more.
