Early Life

DJ Suss One was born November 8th, 1978 in Brooklyn, New York to his parents Raymond and Peggy Sussman.[1] The family eventually relocated to the city of Westchester, New York when Sussman was 8 years old.

[3] [2] This would end up being where he got his first job as well, working at a local CVS and using the money to fund his budding DJ career at the ripe age of 13. He would first prove his skills locally, performing as the DJ of local high school parties as he mastered his craft and began to set the stage for his successful career in the music industry.
