History

Before Black Chiney came to prominence, founding member Supa Dups (born Dwayne Chin-Quee) was a DJ at Miami's Power 96 radio station (WPOW 96.5) for two years, in his early teens. As Supa got older, he had an interest in music production. In fact, his aunt figured that he was so serious about becoming a producer, so she mortgaged her house in Miami and bought him an Akai MPC-3000. Not long after, Supa began mixing dancehall riddims with hip hop (mainly Miami bass). For other meanings of DJ, see DJ (disambiguation). ...

Bobby Chin (born Robert Lee) was a selector in Kingston, Jamaica before he migrated to the U.S. at the age of 21. He settled in Washington, D.C., and was a selector for his cousin's short-lived Super Power Earthquake sound system. Eventually, Chin joined a Tampa-based sound system called Poison Dart, of which Supa was member. Poison Dart travelled extensively throughout North America and the Caribbean.

After Supa and Chin left Poison Dart, the two began collaborating and they produced many dancehall/hip-hop mixtapes. At one point, Supa had difficulties paying for a $500 cell phone bill, so Supa and Chin released their first mix CD in 1999 entitled Black Chiney 1 - Enter The Dragon to pay the bill. This was the first time the duo used the name Black Chiney, as they did not have a nickname at the time. The mixtape sold in large numbers, and it was also big in the Caribbean. When Miami's DJ Khaled (WEDR 99.1) heard their mixtapes, he asked them to produce more. By the time a fifth volume mixtape was released by Supa and Chin, Black Chiney was still known as a mix CD, and the mixtapes proved to be popular. The pair had initially hid their identities, fearing reprisals from the Jamaican record industry. For the album by Los Abandoned, see Mix Tape (album). ...

In early 2001, the pair finally went public as Black Chiney. Black Chiney enjoyed much success in Jamaica as a result of the mixtapes, but in the summer of 2001, they also earned respect from the soundclashes they took part in. In sound clashes, Chin was the deejay who battled his opponents on stage, whereas Supa would play a riddim as the selector. In 2002, at an annual event dubbed Fully Loaded, the reigning "king" Tony Matterhorn lost the sound clash against Black Chiney. In a rematch later that year in Miami, Matterhorn would be defeated by Black Chiney once again. A Deejay (in a dancehall context) sings or toasts to an instrumental riddim (rhythm). ...

Since Black Chiney toured around the world, often playing at clubs and concerts, they experienced some burnout. As a result, Supa and Chin recruited two new members to help them carry the load in 2003; Willy Chin and Walshy Killa. Willy Chin (born Warren Ho) is actually the younger cousin of Supa, and he had about three years of prior experience as a selector. Walshy Killa (born Leighton Walsh) was mostly known for being the younger brother of Cricket legend Courtney Walsh, until he became a member of Black Chiney. Walshy was formerly a selector based in Brooklyn, New York, but now he shares duties as a selector for Black Chiney and MIXX 96.1 in Miami.

In 2004, Supa produced the first riddim under the group's newly formed Black Chiney Records. It was called Kopa, and it proved to be extremely popular. Artists such as Elephant Man, Vybz Kartel, Capleton, Nina Sky and Akon used the riddim, and some of these versions became hit singles. The Kopa riddim continued to get major club play through 2005, and in 2006, Black Chiney released a riddim called Higher Octane. The latest riddim by Black Chiney is the Drumline/Timeline.
