Real DJ’s?

Dj 2 001

It seems that everyday I’m reading about people criticizing this or that DJ about being real, or that he or she doesn’t have any real skill.

Other trends have gone through similar surges; Hip Hop MC’ing, Producing, Break Dancing, Mix Martial Arts, and Sport are just a few. Sure there are some DJ’s that are better than others, and yes there are some “DJ’s” that get bookings as DJ’s based off of other skills/talents/metrics. By why the negativity and hate in our community? And yes, it is a community!
