    I started doing my YouTube series a year after joining hubpages.  I considered it a way to reach the public outside the Hub who share my interests: vinyl records, crate digging and music production, particularly the art of sampling.  The smug try to quickly debunk sampling like it isn't an artform but it certainly is.  If someone makes a mosaic, no one complains they didn't take all the pictures.

    Either way you feel about it, I WENT VIRAL!  instantly.
    My first video TOP 10 SAMPLES IN HIP-HOP HISTORY is now up over 600k.

    FAST FORWARD to now
    John Legend is producing an Off-Broadway play about the legend Dick Gregory and it's starring the great Joe Morton. Joe has asked me to DJ the private afterparty for this Opening Night event 5/19. Playing Prince 45's for Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle might be coming off the Bucket List my friends!

    and today this happened...
