The hermano, 5x World Champion legend, Dj Craze put up a Youtube video yesterday of his latest Dj routine using Kanye West‘s “New Slaves”. In this footage, Craze shows a perfect balance of using both traditional Dj skills & embracing new technology at the same time….this video shows that Craze still has the skills to pay the bills while able to be “current” in today’s Dj climate.
And from his own words: “This culture means the world to me and has blessed me with so much. I’m a b-boy at heart and this is my form of expression. I hope y’all paid attention to the message instead of the shots I fired! This is an artform that I feel doesn’t get the respect it deserves but as long as I’m breathing, I will do my best to bring you that heat!!! #realdjing”
Salute to our good friend Craze for always coming with it!
For another installment of Throwback Thursdays, I wanted to post a video of mi hermano, the one & only Dj Craze. Straight up, Craze is hands down the best Dj in the World in the history of Battle Dj’s. He’s one of my favorites and is always exciting to watch. Even after his retirement from the Battling scene, he was able to transition into being one of the best Party Rockers out right now and running his own label, Slow Roast. When we Dj’ed together at The Do-Over Portland a few months ago with the other homie Fourcolor Zack, he was joking he should call himself the “Floyd Mayweather Of Djing”….we were all laughing, but deep down I think he was serious…haha! Craze is an excellent Dj as well as an excellent human being…..that’s my hermano right there!
This video footage is from the DMC 1998 World Championships, where he was defending his title the 2nd time. Peep out this footage & this will show you why he was the 5x DMC World Champion…enjoy!
