Scott Monroe Sterling (2 March 1962 - 27 August 1987), better known by his stage name Scott La Rock, was an American DJ and a founding member of the hip hop group Boogie Down Productions. While working as a social worker, he met rapper KRS-One at a shelter where KRS resided. The pair formed Boogie Down Productions with D-Nice, a cousin of the shelter's security guard. Their 1987 debut album, Criminal Minded, is considered a classic hip hop album.

Sterling was fatally shot while attempting to defuse a confrontation at the age of twenty-five years old.
