DJ DISCO WIZ GETS HIS PROPS
By ELENA ROMERO

Luis “DJ Disco Wiz” Cedeño believes in second chances.

As the first Latino hip-hop deejay, it’s now that this 48-year-old Bronx native is getting his props. With the release of his memoir, “It’s Just Begun” , the Puerto Rican and Cuban Cedeño is taking his rightful place in music history.

“My goal is to save lives and to touch young kids,” says Cedeño, a two-time cancer survivor whose musical career was cut short at age 17 after being incarcerated for attempted murder. “A lot of people don’t survive the things that I did.”

Cedeño first made a 25-year career as a chef heading up the kitchen at two of New York’s most prestigious private clubs before returning to his first love– hip-hop. Once the deejay arm to Casanova Fly, a.k.a. Grandmaster Caz of the legendary group the Cold Crush Brothers (together, they invented the mix plate), Cedeño chronicles his hard knock life with no fluff.

Using a brutally honest tone, he shares his bouts with abuse, violence, drugs to ultimately finding inner peace.

“Wiz’s memoir represents the kind of hip-hop generation story that seldom, if ever, gets told,” says Carlito Rodriguez, the former editor of The Source and who is currently developing Cedeño’s story into a film.

“It’s not about music, cash and cars, it’s about a young man finding his redemption via prison, living a double-life on the constant hustle, and ultimately, falling in love with the woman who would save his life.”
