IF YOU DONT KNOW OF ME U MAY BE UNDER A ROCK OR SOMETHING BUT HOLD THE RAW UNDERGROUND DOWN WITH THE STREET CDS...... STRAIGHT OUTTA OF QUEENS NEW YORK AND FIVE MIXTAPE AWARDS LATER STILL BEING SAME AS I ALWAYS WAS.... CONSISTENCE IN EVERYTHING I DO......

2. WHO & WHAT INFLUENCED YOU TO BE A DJ?


JUST MY LOVE FOR MUSIC BASICALLY I ALWYAS THE CAT WITH A THOUSAND CASSETTES IN MY POCKETS AT ANY GIVEN TIME.... I ALWAYS WAS INTO HIP HOP AND THEN I STARTED RHYMING I LEARNED HOW TO PRODUCE AND THEN THE DJING ASPECT BROUGHT IT TOO COMPLETION OF MY HIP HOP TRIANGLE

SAD TO SAY BUT ALOT OF THESE DJS ALL THEY DO IS COPY EACH OTHER AND FOLLOW THE NEXT MAN ITS REALLY DISGUSTING BUT THATS THE WORLD OF HIP HO NOW... I JUST TRY AND BE UNIQUE IN THE SENSE I KNOW WHAT I LIKE AND WHEN I MAKE A CD ITS BASICALLY FOR ME I DO IT FOR MYSELF AND EVERYONE ELSE GETS TO FOLLOW MY TATSE AND WHAT I THINK IS HOT

I MEAN BASICALLY I SET MYSLEF OUT TO ACCOMPLISH MY GOALS AND SLOWLY I TACKLING ALL OF THEM

7. YOUR OPINION ON THE MIXTAPE GAME?

DISGUSTING ....... EVERYONE IS A FOLLOWER OR JUST DOING WHATEVER TO GET MONEY... NO ONE ( EXCLUDING MYSELF) TAKES TIME AND CARES HOW THERE CDS COME TOGETHER JUST ABOUT MAKING A QUICK NAME OR BUCK FOR THEM SELEVS ALOT OF THEM CATS PLAIN OUT SUCK AND LEAVE ME DISGUSTED

8. CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG,YOU HAVE 4 VOLs OF LEGENDS WHAT ARE THEY AND WHAT COMING DOWN THE LINE IN THAT SERIES?

9. YOUR VIEW ON THE HIP HOP GAME? IS IT TAINTED?

VERY ... ITS REAL POLITICAL RIGHT NOW... SO MUCH MONEY INVOLVED SO IT TAKES FROM CREATIVE ASPECT OF IT ... PEOPLE CONCERNED WITH HITS THEN QUALITY MUSIC SO IT TAKES FROM IT AS A WHOLE.... TOO WORRIED ABOUT COMPETION SOUNDSCAN ETC ETC
