Scott was not only the DJ of A$AP Mob. He was also the official DJ for A$APRocky and the Cozy Boys. Scott was also a producer who managed various artists and served as a creative partner to A$AP Mob.

Scott was born in Atlanta, Georgia and joined A$AP Mob shortly after moving to New York City. Prior to Rocky’s surge of fame in the early 2010s, Rocky and the late A$AP Yams asked Scott to be Rocky’s official DJ. Shortly after, Scott began managing artists. It’s currently unclear how J. Scott passed.
