SmokeScreen Flips and Events

SmokeScreen Flips and Events

Couple a snaps from my recent events + a dope flip I did for Smokescreen. Catch there show on Saturday or catch the album when they drop it.

Today I was the the DJ for the opening act @ Edgewater Live. It was a good time despite the grey skies. Shout out to @wolfridernaj and the #LolCle crew. #DJNuERA #DoingDJStuff
I had a blast djing at Take 5 Jazz Lounge. The band (@OfficialJpennelope) was amazing, the food (Shrimp and grits) was amazing.
I'm thankful for every opportunity I've been given as a professional DJ. Sometimes I have the chance to be apart of some very special events. Last night I played music for @sneakersmcgee (Brendan Whitt) during the staged reading of his new book "A summer in Harlem" it was a great experience.

Why Hiphop is the greatest genre

Why Hiphop is the greatest genre

I only have one reason why I believe Hiphop is the greatest genre of music.

To my knowledge Hiphop is the only genre of music that consistently introduces its listeners to other genres of music and artist. 

I'm a DJ so trust me I can post examples for days but I don't really feel like doing that lol. Instead I encourage you to take a look a your favorite songs new or old and see what they sampled via http://www.whosampled.com

As a matter of fact I will drop one gem on y'all from that new Jay Z Album 4:44

Selector Battle Recap [ Major Glory ]

Selector Battle Recap [ Major Glory ]

Congratulations DJ Reg P enjoy that $150 💰💰 cash money prize! Enjoy that title of Supreme Selector while your djing Lyrical Rhythms at the end of the month! #SelectorDJBattle Witness the shift in culture as DJ's step into the public arena and showcase there skill.

Real Rap, Culture, and my guy.

As I grow as DJ and meet new people I'm starting to see that everyones idea of what a DJ is isn't the same. I believe that all DJ's should have the ability to showcase. It's important to put back into the culture we all benefit from when we call ourselves DJ's. Its about doing what you do best and showcasing your skills for the world. I think a lot of DJ's are apprehensive about battling because of the stigma attached with losing. Its not 1995 anymore lol it doesn't matter if you win or lose. Its about being authentic. If you call yourself a DJ you should have no problem showcasing after all you do it overnight you have a gig. Just condense your 5 hr set into 5 minutes. Just my opinion though.  

 

On another note my guy WSWDS dropped a nice little quick mix while we kicking it at his crib yesterday. I was like bro you need to quit playing and post that shit. Your welcome world. Enjoy The Pre Heat!

Following your dreams [waking dream creation]

Following your dreams [waking dream creation]

When thinking about keys to success the most important factor is doing something that you truly have a passion for. If you don't have a true passion for your craft you won't be willing to sacrifice the extra work and time it takes to progress. That's just my opinion though. On another note I'm excited about my new art work and hat I got from Waking Dream Creations. Check em out on IG @WakingDreamCreations 

This is the hat I got

This is the hat I got

I even wore it in the DMC Battle 💪😎

You can see a quick vid of everything I got on my Instagram. Big ups to the this guy pursuing his dreams. Real recognize real so I had to support and spend BREAD!!! Not just a repost I link up with bro and gave my hard earned money. Now that's what I call support. Just my opinion though.

It was great to take break from all the practice I've been doing in preparation for the final regional DMC battle in Pittsburgh and just chop it about music. Friday the 19th I'll be going to Pittsburg to represent Cleveland in the world's largest, longest running most reputable DJ competition. I can't wait!

With that being said I've been working on a project with Hip-HopDigital.Com music hand selected not because of affiliations but because the product is A1. The product was RIGHT and we Supported!

Last night I had the opportunity to rock my guy Aaron James's release party. It was a dope, he definitely went the extra mile with his presentation. The one thing that our most to me was his stage presence and ability to control the crowd. I was definitely impressed. I'm excited to see what the future holds for my guy.  Check the project out on live mixtape.
