DJ Hideo was a very popular and highly respected Los Angeles DJ who is perhaps best remembered as the mix show director, production assistant and on-air turntablist at local powerhouse radio station, KKBT, “The Beat.”  While there, Hideo build a sizable following thanks to his on-air spinning for the popular Steve Harvey and John Salley programs, among others.  Hideo became a key fixture of L.A.’s hip hop scene while performing with some of the biggest names of the genre as well as DJ’ing at high-profile events.  Throughout the years, he has opened for the likes of Coolio, Ludacris and Xzibit.  He also produced and hosted the West Coast Takeover show on Sirius/XM.  By doing all this and more, Hideo rightfully earned the moniker of “The Hardest Working DJ On The West Coast.”  On April 24, 2010, DJ Hideo, age 42, died after a long struggle with colon and liver cancer.
