Music is a tool

Music is a tool

Music is a tool and with the right tools any skilled technician can get the job done. I can rock any venue given the opportunity even if I don't fit the image. Just because I'm black doesn't mean I can't rock a majority white club. Just because I can rock those clubs doesn't mean I can't rock the new hiphop and rap spots. Don't try and put me in a box I'm a professional, versatile DJ no matter what my skin color makes you think. 

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

The Platform and a little advice

The Platform and a little advice

I had the opportunity to participate as a judge during at The Platform Concert. They had a lot of great prizes for the artist. I'm glad I could be apart of such a great event. Props to all the artist that put themselves out there and join the competition. It's not an easy thing to take a loss. It's not an easy thing to put your pride on the line and allow your art to be judged. Artist keep grinding, stay connected and build your brand because in the end it's just business. 

Talking about practice

Talking about practice

I love being a DJ but I'm also competitive I want to be the best. Not better than the next man just better than I was yesterday lol if that makes any sense at all. My guy Royel Urban came to the lab last night to go over his set for a show we're doing this weekend. Then I played a few beats I've been working on and got a little scratch session in while we were talking about work flow.
