Mark ‘DJ Pooh’ Jordan was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 29 June 1969 – his zodiac sign is Cancer and he holds American nationality. He is a record producer, actor, film writer and director, perhaps best known for having worked with famous rappers such as Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg among others.

Early life, family and education

DJ Pooh was raised as an only child in Los Angeles by his father who was a lawyer and his mother who was an accountant – he prefers not to share details of his family with the public.

He attended a local high school at which he became interested in rapping – he and his friends would listen to rap music almost all day.

While attending his senior year, DJ Pooh started creating his own music, and after he matriculated in 1987, he decided to focus on his career as a record producer rather than to pursue a college degree.

Record producing

In 1986, he produced LL Cool J’s album “Bigger and Deffer”, which became a huge hit in the US, and was certified platinum twice. Nine years later, he was invited to work on 2Pac’s album “All Eyez on Me” which was certified diamond, and he then produced Snoop Dogg’s album “The Doggfather”, which was released in 1996 and was certified platinum twice.

Although many people claim to have seen DJ Pooh walking hand in hand with many women over the years, he has never publicly spoken about being in a relationship or marrying anyone – there are also rumors claiming that DJ Pooh is gay, but these have since been proven false.

It is widely believed that he was in a relationship with a mysterious non-celebrity woman in his 30s, and that the two dated for over five years before splitting ways for unknown reasons, and during that time they were often spotted together by DJ Pooh’s fans.
