Be the first you and not the second for nobody else.
When you were spinning for celebrities, is there any celebrity tales you could share with us? Anything crazy? Incriminating but funny?
Go to my website and my new EPK is there. Go to my story, and there is a new 6 minute video I just posted up. It shows how I pranked Eminem and it also showed me sleeping in Rick Ross’ bed. He got so mad and almost threw me out. But I always joke around my friends.
Have you ventured into fashion like designing clothes, shoes, and accessories?
Maybe in future.
How did you come about becoming a DJ? How did you start? Spinning for celebrities or?
I started spinning in different shows and slowly I started spinning all around the world.
Tonight’s event is a Brazilian themed night. Are you going to play any songs related to the Brazilian culture?
I don’t know but if I see some Brazilian women out there shaking then I probably will. Brazilian men, nahh I don’t think so.
Any good memories from previous parties?
You know its good memories every single day. Life is exciting; getting invited to parties every time, so every single day is a great memory for me. Sometimes you have awesome parties, sometimes u have not so awesome parties. I get paid to listen to music everyday and share it with people. How can u have a better job than that?
