I had an uncle 13 years older than me that was a real influential part of my life. He used to be in the crib cutting up records on the Technics. When I came through, I was hearin’ him cut up Rock the Bells and Slick Rick, EPMD, KRS-One. I looked up to him so much, that’s where I really fell in love with the culture. Growing up in the South Bronx, seeing different things and being around different situations."
