    DJ LAZ - Episode 13

    DJ LAZ - Episode 13

    Lazaro Mendez, better known by his stage name DJ Laz  is a Cuban-American rapper and DJ. He hosted his weekday radio show in Miami on WPOW 96.5 FM, branded as "Power 96", for 22 years until he left the company in April 2012. Beginning July 4, 2012, the new DJ Laz Morning Show began after arbitration on the newly reformatted WRMA DJ 106.7, a Bilingual Dance/Rhythmic formatted station.


    He is best known for his limp which came from his battle with polio as a child. Doctors told his parents that he would never walk again and to Laz, he knew he would and make history by proving the doctors wrong.  He not only was able to walk again, (but, with a limp), he turned what most people would call, “disabled” to “abled” and was dubbed by his nephew Pitbull, “The Pimp with the Limp” and the rest is history.  

    In 2021, DJ Laz joined the iHeartRadio Miami family of their new 90's station, Totally 93.9 FM, hosting weekday afternoons.  He stated that he was really happy with that choice, especially during the afternoon time slot rather than the morning time slot. DJ Laz can also  be found on Sirius XM on Pitbull's Globalization Channel 13.

    Naughty Natalia had the chance to catch up with her old friend and hear about some his wild experiences in radio and in life!

    As one half of the production duo Caligula, he is a fixture in Miami Nightlife and transcends genres seamlessly the way he does scenes. From a downtown dance spot, mega South Beach club or an underground speakeasy, there isn’t a venue Damaged Goods hasn’t stamped with his signature, high energy and forever evolving style.

    Residencies at Mansion, Mokai and Set and an International Sponsorship with Smirnoff Vodka soon followed and so did the opportunity to play alongside heavyweights Deadmau5, Steve Angello, Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, Afrojack and more.
