Expanding his musical prowess, DJ Aladdin ventured into music production, working with notable artists such as Ice T, King Tee, and W.C. He produced Ice T's album "O.G.," which achieved gold status on Warner Bros. Records. DJ Aladdin also contributed to the soundtrack of the film "New Jack City" with the theme song "New Jack Hustler" featuring Ice T.
