What made you want to be a DJ?
Music runs in my family, from producers, to Dj’s, so it was always around me, my family loves music I was brought up always around djing, seeing my cousins have complete control over so many people at one time is what got me!
How Long Have You been a DJ?
I’ve been djin since I was 7, started getting serious gigs when I was about 15, I’d say quite a while lol
What dj do you look up to?
Can’t say I look up to any other DJ, but there are dj’s that definetly inspired me coming up like Funkmaster Flex, Red Alert, Tony Touch, Dj Camilo, then moving to florida gotta say guys like Dj Khaled, Dj Irie, Dj Epps, the things that these guys have accomplished as DJ’s is what kept me always wanting to do what I do.
Is this your dream job? If no then what is?
This is definitely my dream job, getting paid to rock audiences state to state in clubs and on radio! Definitely! Its what I always wanted to do!
How long you been with the station?
Before I was on Flava, a few yrs back I use to be a mixer at 99jamz for 2 & a half years and X102.3 for about 5 or 6 months.
What’s your take on the industry today?
Well I remember when hip hop wasn’t an industry, it was jus hip hop, dudes rapping n making music for fun, cause they was nice, or jus because, but the “Industry” is money driven now, so the music changed since then, but it is what it is.
Are there any other fields in the industry you work in?
U could say A&R lol, I somehow always get records from people that are good, n I meet artists n work with them, I like to put new artists together to work all the time. Plus some production on the low,(sssshhh) u may hear something soon..
What’s in your IPod?
DJ KD radio mixes old and new... Not cause I’m cocky or nothing, but because I like to listen to where I came from up to where I am now, n improve and make myself better. I’m my own worst critic, and I’m a radio head!
Favorite record to date?
Any Biggie song.
What do you do when your not DJ’N?
