What made you get into the music industry?
My love for music made me get into the music industry. I love all different types of music! I grew up on Jazz, Hip-Hop and R&B records. I always respected DJ’s and loved the art form. A friend of mine gave me a really bad pair of turntables to start out on. I had to save up to get a pair of technic 1200’s.
