I learned how to dj when I was around 6 years old growing up in Brooklyn, New York City. My brother DJ Willie Wil who is 7 years older than me brought home his first dj equipment when he was only 12 years old. He had a GLi PMX 9000 Preamplifier/Mixer and two Technics 1200s. When he got older and went to work I use to mess around with his stuff. The rest became history for me. I remember my brother's boombox too. It was a Sharp 777 with 4 sub woofers, dual tape deck, echo chamber and yes a fader knob for the tape decks. I use to mix music with tape decks ya'll. That's how it all began for me. Djing was always in my blood. My brother was how I became inspired to be a DJ. My brother is my idol! I breathe first then I dj! It's that simple!
