Got in the game: 2006

Why I do it: I witnessed some of the Jersey originals Brick Bandits spinning live and watched how they made the crowd go crazy with their slick mixes and heart-pounding mash-ups, and from there I realized I wanted to have crowds going crazy just like them.

I’d like to add: I would like to thank everyone who comes out to support me. Without the people, I am nothing. You are my biggest source of inspiration. I would like to thank my mentor Lou Pedrick, who has gotten me to where I am now. Also, my new manager Heleana Henderson. She’s the best I have worked with so far. I want to thank my brother again, DJ SLiiNK, he was the one who gave me my name and also taught me what he knew. Last but not least, I want to thank all of my influences. They push me to go outside of my boundaries and set new heights.
