Don "Magic" Juan (born Donald Campbell, aka The Chairman of the Board, Archbishop Don 'Da Magic' Juan, Bishop Magic Juan, and Bishop) is an American hip hop artist, actor, fashion designer, and pimp from Chicago.
Juan's climb to mainstream celebrity began when he met Snoop Dogg backstage at one of his concerts. They soon became good friends, and Juan became Snoop's "spiritual advisor". He also acts as a "spiritual advisor" to Gina Gershon as seen in an episode of the documentary series Rocked with Gina Gershon. To date, Juan has not released any albums of his own, although in 2003, Snoop Dogg stated that he was working on producing Juan's first album. Juan did release a compilation album of '70s and '80s soul classics in 2006, titled Green is for the Money, Gold is for the Honeys.
Juan has had several supporting roles in music, videos, and live stage shows of established rap artists, including a remix of 50 Cent's "P.I.M.P.", (as well as being featured in the music video), and a spoken-word interlude on Da Brat's album Unrestricted. He is also featured in Twista's song "Pimp On" from the Kamikaze album, and "Bo$$ Playa" from Snoop Dogg's album Paid tha Cost to Be da Boss. Juan can also be seen as part of Snoop's entourage in movies such as Starsky & Hutch and Old School. His TV appearances include the Ice-T episode of Behind the Music, Girls Next Door, The Daily Show, Rob and Big, and Viva La Bam. Juan also appears in the B-Real music video "Los Angeles" directed by Director Hugo V, Pimps Up, Ho's Down, a documentary about the pimping lifestyle, and the Hughes Brothers-directed documentary American Pimp.
Juan was caricatured in Aaron McGruder's comic strip The Boondocks for a November–December 2003 story arc during which Boondocks characters Huey and Caesar were attempting to find then-U.S. National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice a boyfriend. He also had a small role as a pimp associated to the character Money Mike, played by Katt Williams, in the film Friday After Next starring Ice Cube. Juan made a brief appearance on the first episode of Mind of Mencia. The character Silky Johnson (a player hater: an individual in stereotypical pimp attire known for hurling verbal insults) from Chapelle's Show is based largely on Juan. In 2007, Juan was honored with his own colorway of the McNally skateboard shoe by Emerica. (Courtesy Wikipedia)
