Mr. Divine-The Mind was formerly a disk jockey back in the late 80's, when Jazzy Jeff and Joe Cooley were the top 2 d.j.'s. When keyboard samplers were introduced, he quickly purchased his first and started crafting music in the early 90's. Soon he was the go to man for some tight street music. Operating out of the back of grandma's house, he decided to get his groups in some better quality studios. This is where he met Aubrey Francis, now manager for Juvenile. Aubrey liked Divine's style and work ethics in the studio and chose him out of a list of producers to audition tracks to Juvenile for his new UTP label. Instant chemistry put him on tour with the UTP camp for a year and a half, and allowed Divine to not only see half the U.S., but also put his stamp on 3 national releases. Divine classifies his music as timeless, because he doesn't follow the sounds that's happening at the time. He chooses to play rather than tap and loop.
