On this episode we have DJ R-Tistic! A Cali native, R-Tistic has been making a name for himself spinning at all the most popular clubs in LA and even being the main stage DJ for Paid Dues 2013 and Rock the Bells 2011. Before DJing, his first passion was being a producer. R-tistic tells us how he got his start in production and becoming one of the in-house producers for Black Wall Street, which is the crew and label of rapper The Game. Florida A&M is where he first began DJing and making a name for himself. He tells us how early on he saw the importance of research in being a DJ. One of his biggest moments came recently when he won the 2014 McDonald’s Flavor Battle judged by DJ Clue, Spinderella, Just Blaze, and DJ Element. R-tistic’s claim to fame also comes from his extremely dope and highly ambitious West Coast timeline mix. That mix spans West Coast Hip Hop from 1981 to 2012. 500 songs in a little over an hour. That’s a DJ you have to take seriously!
Other topics include: Juvenile, The Thong Song, New Orleans, songs that must die, limitations in Pop music, drama from the McDonalds battle, hustling, and music technology.
