Past members

The Juice Crew was a hip hop collective of largely Queensbridge-based artists in the mid to late-1980s. Founded by producer Marley Marl and radio DJ Mr. Magic, the group was housed by Tyrone William's Cold Chillin' Records. The crew produced many answer records and "beefs" - primarily with rival radio jock Kool DJ Red Alert and the South Bronx's Boogie Down Productions - as well as the 1988 posse cut "The Symphony". Although the collective never released an album together, it is notable for starting the careers of Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, Masta Ace and Biz Markie.
