You guys know I love nothing more than to showcase hot talent and this opportunity makes Me feel extra good because back when i was just starting out D.J. Rokkstarr took a chance at showcasing My talent on his radio station. It feels good to have a platform to share that love back with him. I’ve watched him over the years continue to reinvent, brand and market himself like no other D.J. in the Baltimore area. But honestly to call him a D.J. is almost an insult…he is so much more. Read on to find out more about him
City/State: Baltimore, MD
Company: RedZone Studio/True Illusion Media
1. You seem to be a Jack of off media trades, How did you get started in the business?
At age 14, I began my journey into the music industry as a local DJ spinning at high school parties throughout Baltimore city and county. I ventured in to music production at 17, creating music for likeminded artists. My love for music grew exponentially as I expanded my knowledge into the business side of the industry and launched my first entertainment company called BlackWax Entertainment.
2. You have a background in radio, what stations were you affiliated and what type shows were you on?
I’ve worked with many local stations such as 92Q, 93.9 WKYS, WPB Radio as wells owning an internet station of my own called X105.1 Radio.
3. What made you branch out on your own and start Redzone Studio?
From the time I began making my own mixtape to promote my music, other artists and DJs became very interested in where my custom materials came from. I then brought supply to the demand and created an avenue where they can boost their image in the local market and I could make money in the process.
