By DJ Scream
Allow me to reintroduce myself. I am yours truly, DJ Scream — known to some as Mr. Heavy in The Streets and to others as the Hoodrich General.
I’m a native of the A-Town and have been creating mixtapes for close to a decade now. Some of the names that I have put on in the area include Shawty Lo, Rocko, Crime Mob, Yung Ralph, J Money, Soulja Boy and some others. Working with these artists has been a pleasure, and the fact that we have dropped street classics that people still bump is even more of a thrill.
What has separated my movement from others has been work ethic. I am constantly either on the phone or in the studio with the artists I work with. I go as far as seeking beats and sometimes even hook-writers to make sure my projects come out as quality as possible. There is NO pressing “burn” on the CD drive until these projects display the maximum of the artists’ potential.
Look for more Atlanta artists to catapult into the mainstream from the “Heavy in the Streets” movement this year. I’m putting the house on J Money, F.L.Y and the Duct Tape Ent Squadron.
Farewell ’til next time, from the 2009 SEA Mixtape DJ of the Year!
