1. What made you start DJing?

I started fully DJing after DJing in college, I DJ'd the incoming freshman parties and I fell in love with the entire feeling and culture of DJing.

2. Are you from Arizona and what do you feel Arizona brings different to the music industry?

I was born in Baltimore, Maryland, however I have been in Arizona since 1995 so yes I do claim AZ as my home state, I feel Arizona can bring a whole new perspective on life and a different struggle story to explain that we've never seen in Hip Hop before.

3. Breakdown the Arizona DJing scene and is it hard to work with other DJ's in your area?

The AZ DJing scene is fairly competitive because of the lack of clubs and venues to spin at, but I believe that really shows a difference in DJs who are serious and who are not. I work with and have great relationships with many DJs in my hometown, Sierra Vista,
4. You have a couple of major shows coming up. can you speak and the following: The Dates, The Locations (Addresses) and how did those gigs come about?

I have a new residency, which is a weekly permanent gig, at 2 clubs Starting Feb. 2nd I will be at Empire Hookah Lounge in Tucson, AZ every Friday, and Cilantros Bar in Douglas, AZ every Saturday. Both of these came about by doing proper marketing and promoting of my brand, club owners and managers have met and messaged me many times and I feel these two spots are best fit for me.

5. How important do you feel the DJ is scene within today's music culture?

I feel like in Hip Hop the DJ is always the vehicle for the artists even today, though the DJ role may have been changed a bit from its roots/origins, however it still holds a very solid importance.
