Repped the USA in the World DMC Championships, 2 Yr Winter Music Conference Scratch Title Winner
I began djing because of my older brother. We had a Technic and a Kenwood turntable, he was a party rocker from the mid 80's up till the early 90's. I remember being a nosey little kid riding my bike back and forth of the garage, where he would be scratching, while an MC was rapping. I was sooo interested, when he would be gone, I was copying what he was doing. When I started in 1995, he saw how dedicated I was, and he surprised me by purchasing another Technic 1200 for me. When I had the two turntables set-up, I knew instantly "It's On!" Mixing and throwing in a little scratch here and there was my style. From only watching my big brother from my younger days, that's all the coaching I ever had, no videos cuz I couldn't afford them, and no dj friend's cuz I was always working or asleep.
I remember the first dj battle I got served sooo bad, it was the 2003 guitar center, and again at the DMC Los Angeles pre-lims. Since then though, I was always working hard, with awesome support from my family, and my 2 best buddies, you know them as J-Reign and Lodus, but you know us 3 as the WestCoast-1-Ders! I was a man on a mission, winning certain competitions and getting a taste of glory. From getting around, I got to meet some REALLY cool people, and I got to work with some very inspirational people as well. So beleive me, I will find new LA hats to wear this year, and I will be in your city soon to give this one more go, thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate it.
