What is the significance of your name and how did you get that name?

Describe your style?
High Tempo, energetic Upbeat Music that lights a fire under your feet to dance. I am more of a Hip Hop/R&B DJ but I played several instruments from the age of 5 to my senior year in High school so my musical taste and choices are extremely open.
What was the first record you started scratching and mixing on the turntables?
Honestly I couldn’t tell you the exact first track I started spinning but I can tell you the one I played and practiced with the most was LL Cool J Headsprung. It is a great record to scratch with and comes in with a bang.
