The Rocks Off 100: OG Bobby Trill, Bombon Beatmaker
I'm happy to have someone on my team that understands my passion and supports me through it all. Things got really tough especially with the Red Bull Thr3eStyle because I felt like i wasn't going to have as much time to prepare as the other DJs who are all professional DJs.
I'm usually a procrastinator, but it was really important for me to show Houston and Red Bull what I have to offer, so I sucked it up and prepared a little bit each day sometimes only getting a few hours sleep until I had to be at work the next morning. All of the hard work paid off in the end lol!
Music Scene Pet Peeve: "EASY!" OGT computer-shouts. "If you read this, please stop telling the DJ what they should play. Some of us handle it better than others, but I'd have to say 99 percent of DJs hate that. We know what we are doing, people, but you cant please everyone."

"All of these mean so much to me for different reasons," he says.
