I came up when hip hop was Red Alert and Mr. Magic. Real DJ’s didn’t need laptops and beat counters to keep them on point. All we had was ears, eyes and soul. We (DJs) used our eyes to see the dark grooves where the breaks were and our ears to cue and your soul to put it all together. DJ’s looked up to show love and were humble people and very helpful to the up and coming DJs like kids in the hood. DJing saved my life and for that I am thankful and humbled.
