I want to go to - what's that hot country with a lot of money? - Dubai.
As an individual I was known as the DJ or the mixer.
Conquer your neighbourhood, conquer your city, conquer your country, and then go after the rest of the world. That's my mantra.
We gotta stop fighting amongst each other. I think the only rift should be when take it the stage and try to out perform each other.
Normal kids in their teens want to go and date girls and do mischievous things, your hormones are jumping around, but I stayed in my bedroom in search of something.
All you have to know is mathematically how many times to scratch it and when to let it go - when certain things will enhance the record you're listening to.
The type of mixing that was out then was blending from one record to the next or waiting for the record to go off and wait for the jock to put the needle back on.
Do not let any record company disturb your creative flow. You are not writing for the record company. You're writing for the public.
But I had two very special people who helped to take my style to the next level. Thank God for my first MC Cowboy and my first student Grand Wizard Theodore, and to go out after creating this art form and finding everyone jamming to it - that too was pretty scary.
Disco was brand new then and there were a few jocks that had monstrous sound systems but they wouldn't dare play this kind of music. They would never play a record where only two minutes of the song was all it was worth. They wouldn't buy those types of records.
I don't want to be classified as an old-skool DJ or new-skool DJ. I want to be classified as an all-skool DJ who plays it all. I also want to learn to DJ house music in my own fashion.
Hip Hop has become real constrained. The creative juices and creative flows have been diminished.
For us to keep claiming this isn't Hip Hop and that isn't Hip Hop doesn't make sense to me.
I had love for Breakout; I had love for Bambaataa. I had love for Kool Herc.
We can even sing off key, but if it's produced properly it can be a hit.
