Looking at me, you wouldn't believe that I'm a 24-year vet as a DJ. Starting at the age of 5, my love of music began with a huge record collection that my father, an ex-drummer, started for me when I was only 2 years old. From Kindergarten to now, the love of music only grew bigger. As a teenager, I kept my passion for music by becoming a DJ for a rap group, and was often seen bangin on tables during lunchtime as my peers free-styled or battled in the lunchroom. I took those beat skills and learned how to use a drum machine to make my own tracks (just as dope as what I heard on the radio). My popularity began to spread among the high school students at Finney High, where I was often hired as the DJ for the house parties. While in high school, I took a radio class at Golightly Career & Technical Center to learn all about radio. While at Golightly, I earned an internship in WJLB's promotions department. Impressed with my editing skills, then program director Steve Hegwood brought me in months later to become a producer for the evening show. I knew that being at JLB was a once-in-a-lifetime deal, and learned all I could (I'm a fast learner!). I was producer of evening, then afternoon shows, a mix-show DJ, a production assistant (where I made commercials), and an on-air personality. Since I've been at WJLB, I stayed in tune with the Hip Hop coommunity and was respected by almost every rapper & DJ in the city. I quickly became friends with individuals who frequented the Hip Hop Shop during the mid to late 90's. By 1999, I became the DJ for monster group D12 (Shady/Interscope Records) In between all this, I also moonlighted as a coordinator for Penmp Entertainmnent, one of Detroit's premiere promotions & marketing companies, headed by Rapper/Marketing wonder, T Da Pimp. I became the technical producer for the morning show, where I had a segment every Wednesday and Thursday called "DDT's New Music Report". I now host "Whats Next on the Menu" every Saturday, bringing unsigned Detroit artists to the airwaves. Along with hosting "What's Next on the Menu," I'm in the midst of completing several mixtapes, and am now the DJ for Mr. Porter (D12/Mr. Porter Productions/Runyon Ave Records). I'm also taking part in music production for several artists including D12, 50 Cent (Shady/Interscope Records), Snoop Dogg (Doggy Style/Geffen), Pharoahe Monch (SRC/Universal), P.H.E.A.R. (Runyon Ave Records), Miss Nissa (Runyon Ave Reocrds), and Shard, among others. You can also hear my music production on TV and radio commercials. I am now a member of the illustrious Hood Hard Hitmaker DJs, and the Mixbosses.
