This Philly rap star dominated DJ battles in the mid to late ‘80s, even posing with his trophies on 12-inch covers with his MC, Marvelous.
He helped invent the Transformer scratch with other Philadelphian DJ luminaries such as Jazzy Jeff and Spinbad, and drove what would be known as turntablism into the mainstream.
Pushing scratches and juggling to new levels gave him a fearsome reputation on the circuit, and made him an inspiration to many that followed.
He not only changed the game, but he’s one of the only old skool pioneers who can still take out the new cats on the scene today.
Still touring, still tearing. Still wearing a t-shirt that says “if it don’t ch-ching, don’t gimme a ring!”
