As we are a month away from Black History epoch, I am inspired to compose short biographies on some of my hottest family members who are currently on the rise and making history.
As 2018 came to a head I was able to reflect on just how truly blessed I am to have such powerful inspirations around me, and I don’t need to look very far. Whenever I need to be inspired, I real live got family members who are
stars in their own right, living out their God-given destiny.
I remember visiting with he and my uncle as a kid in Va. He would always be practicing on his drum sets lol, nonstop, getting on my nerves. LOL! But I could tell …it took him to another place, music was his peace. It is his God-given talent; raw and untouched.
Now look at him, bringing some of the hottest beats to everyone all around the world .
He was born, Marqus Brown in Baltimore, MD, and is currently based in Oakland and L.A. Some of his best work includes, not limited to being named by XXL magazine’s 30 Best Hip Hop Producers of 2016. Marqus began releasing his Tonite Show series back in 2006, which have featured artists such as Yukmouth and Raekwon.
He’s produced several mixtapes and has worked with various other artists, such as Nas.
So proud of my cuzzo DJFresh! He is definitely starting his new year out on the right foot with Wiz Khalifa partying on New Year’s Day to his beats.
Check out this tight beat he produced for Wiz Khalifa. Wiz Klalifa looks into the camera, while the beats of djfreshdjfreshdjfresh swoon in the background, states ” This n**ga has inspired me to rap”.
