Some of my earlier influences started with the radio dj's like DJ Red Alart and others that were a part of the group such as DJ Scratch or Jam Master Jay. As the art form grew over time, so did the talent of the artist. We started to recognize the mixtape DJs and producers. Kid Capri from Uptown, DJ Clue from Queens had the mixtape game on smash. Dr. Dre and Puff Daddy had us on the edge of our seats, DJ Premier and RZA had us rewinding our tapes. The Kendrick Lamars and Drakes of today are our Nas and Jay Z. Wiz Khalifa is my Snoop Dog. We are a global community pushing the envelope to the cutting edge and I will support all artist that maintains the principles of Hip Hop.
