Norman Rogers (born August 25, 1966), known as Terminator X, is a retired American DJ best known for his work with hip-hop group Public Enemy, which he left in 1999. He also produced two solo albums, Terminator X & The Valley of the Jeep Beets (1991) and Super Bad (1994), featuring Chuck D, Sister Souljah, Kool DJ Herc, the Cold Crush Brothers, and a bass music track by the Punk Barbarians. In 2013, Terminator X was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Public Enemy.


After retiring from the music scene in 2003, Rogers ran an ostrich stud farm in North Carolina.[1][2] In 2010, Terminator X returned to the recording studio for his 2011 album, Judgement Day, "a tribute to the five elements of hip-hop, which include B-boying, graffiti, rapping, DJ’ing and knowledge."[3]

In 2013 Terminator X began DJ'ing on Chuck D's internet radio station "RapStation.com" with a weekly show titled "The Edge Of Panic Radio Show" hosted by DJ DVS.[citation needed]
