The 5th Platoon DJs have every reason to be proud…and it’s things like this that just remind us of why we love & appreciate DJs the way we do.
“Proud of my Squads multiple accomplishments. I’m usually very humble but sometimes you have to stand behind your body of work” -Vinroc
“Everyone played a role in my dj crew 5th Platoon, Kuttin Kandi and Roli Rho were the super stars on the east coast, Vinroc was the 2 time ITF champ, Do Boy was one of the most technically proficient turntablists and undeniably one of the fiercest competitors of the time period, and of course later on you had I.Emerge, who was a monster and the last back to back USA DMC world champ.
Then you had me and Deejay Daddydog . If we were a basketball team, we’d be the guys coming off the bench handling scrub minutes when we were winning by 20. We were the members of A$AP that no ones heard of.
I remember one time – for all up and coming djs who complain about money , not getting what you deserve etc etc – this one time daddy dog and I drove all the way from NYC to Boston to DJ a party at Harvard. about 3 hour drive. We had to bring our equipment .They paid us I think.. 125 bucks. After tolls and gas , we split about 75 dollars between us for about 10 hours of work.
Because Daddy Dog and I were the other guys on this great team, we were the ones who had to grind, and even though we are fast approaching our 20 year djing, its something that we continue to do.
This is a relatively new vid, something daddy dog put up a that I think is still sick, shows how much Daddy Dog is still keeping up with the jonzes.
Deejay daddy dog is a monster indeed.” – Neil Armstrong
