DJ Jubilee (born Jerome Temple) is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Background[edit]

Temple grew up in the St. Thomas Housing Development in New Orleans.[1] He graduated from Grambling State University and is a football coach and a special education teacher.[2]

Music career[edit]

DJ Jubilee began DJing at parties in the 1980s and achieved significant recognition for his 1993 cassette single Do The Jubilee All.[3] This song contains the first recorded use of the word 'twerk'.[4]

DJ Jubilee's 1998 album Take It To the St. Thomas debuted at #61 on Billboard’s Top R&B albums chart for the week of May 9, 1998.[1]

In November 2013, DJ Jubilee headlined the first bounce show to be performed at New Orleans' Preservation Hall with the Big Easy Bounce Band.[5][6]

The 2000 504 Boyz hit single "Wobble Wobble" was inspired by a DJ Jubilee lyric.[7]

Legal issues[edit]

Take Fo' Records unsuccessfully sued Cash Money Records alleging that Juvenile's "Back That Azz Up" infringed the copyright of DJ Jubilee's "Back That A$$ Up".[8]
