Faheem "DJ Priority" Jackson was born and raised in Paterson, New Jersey. Music was the culture of his household while growing up during the 80s. His father, a DJ, always invited him into his home studio to listen and record albums for personal listening at a very young age.
Starting in the mid 90s, he began to djay house parties and college parties. Around 2002, he then started djaying on college radio (The Last Hip Hop radio show) at William Paterson College with fellow dj, Max Jerome. The radio show became a significant median in the area with local artists throughout NJ. During this time, DJ Priority began moderating Max Jerome's website called (www.basically-hiphop.com).
After being introduced to Newark's own Black 45, he began to meet numerous upcoming and established DJs, Producers, Graf Writers, Emcees, Beat Boxers and Breakdancers throughout the Tri-State area. Soon after, DJ Priority, Max Jerome and Black 45 began working together and organized the event (Meet The Producers Beat Battle Invitational) which eventually became the premier Beat Battle in NJ from 2003 to 2009. This also happened simultaneously as he started doing promotions and djaying on a college music tour across the country with Virgin Records.
In 2005, he started learning how to produce music for Hip Hop and R&B artists. He got his first big break by placing beats on Vast Aire's classic album "Dueces Wild" and Mighty Joseph's (Vast Aire & Karniege) "Empire State" albums in 2008 through Myspace.
