Born and raised in the inner city of Baltimore, MD. Dj Reddz used to watch music videos and performances that had 2 turntables.
Immediately fixated on the physical characteristics of the turntables themselves, and having a few relatives in his family that were already craftsman of the trade, prompted his passion to want to become as skilled as possible as a Dj. At age 11, he decided that he wanted to become a student of the game and dedicated himself to being the best Dj he could possibly be. Initially focused on the craft of bar counts, timing and flawless transitions, his interest started out as a hobby and ultimately ended up as a career. As years went on, he tracked his progression from basic scratches to more complex scratches and blends, dedicating himself daily to the complexity of the craft. Influenced by local celebrity Dj’s such as; Dj Boobie, Dj Mike Crosby, SupaFunkRegulata CeLo, Dj Titan, Dj Rod Braxton, amongst others.
Around 19 years old, his hobby became a business. Through his tenure, he worked at a local music store that was extremelypopular and influential in Baltimore City called Metro 2. He eventually hooked up with partner and life-long friend S.Dot and NiteLife Entertainment was created. The intention of NiteLife Entertainment was to provide quality from the patrons to the actual entertainment itself, which was Dj Reddz and S.Dot. Starting off mixing in neighborhood bars and smaller night clubs, the duos’ popularity grew substantially to the point where they were working frequently in the top clubs in Baltimore City. Also, they performed at numerous concerts for some of the biggest artist in the industry! From the likes of Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Trey Songz, T.I., and Rick Ross to name a few.
The notoriety from the hard work then led to Dj Reddz becoming a member of CBS Radio’s “WPGC 95.5 fm” in Washington D.C.
