Your name is spelled Blakboy not black boy, is there a special meaning ?
No particular reason as to why I spelled it that way other than trying to make it unique. I'm pro-black and when people hear my name, I want them to know a black and proud guy conquered such feats.
Where are you from?
I was born in Athens, Ga. but I was raised in Washington-Wilkes Ga. I'm from the country basically.
How did you get started? Is it hard to become a Dj?
I was a broke college student and jobs were hard to come by so I created my own job. It isn't hard at all to be a DJ. It just depends on what kind of DJ one wants to be.
What is your favorite place to Dj a party?
I like djayin out of town the most over djayin anywhere else. I like a crowd that is open to true open format DJs.
How long does it take to produce a track?
It all depends on the producer. Some times I can produce a song in less than 30 minutes to perfection or it could take days.
Have you worked with any of the big names in ATL?
I've worked with a few big names. I djayed for CyHi The Prynce, Royce Rizzy, Travis Porter and many more. I've also travelled on tour opening up for guys such as Kendrick Lamar, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, Yo Gotti, and many more.
What artist inspire you?
2Pac is probably the most influential artist that has impacted my view on music and even my own life.
What makes a good Dj?
There are many qualities to a good DJ, but as I mentioned before, it all depends on what the DJ wants to do. The most important qualities to me are skill, crowd control, and being charismatic.
How do you know as a DJ when to "Turn Up" the jam or slow things down with R&B slow song?
You just have to feel out the crowd. It's like a sixth sense. A good DJ will know exactly when to play certain songs.
Finish the statement if DjBlakboy were not a producer he would have become a ....
If I weren't a producer/DJ, then I would be a regular guy with a regular job enjoying my regular life.
I am sorry to hear of one of the Atlanta's rising Hip hop stars Bankroll Fresh shot and killed Friday. Its a shame when anyone so young full of life is cut down. In your opinion how can we help stop the violence?
I don't know much about the streets but I'm aware of the way things operate. I hate to say but to end violence will take some time but it can be done. First we have to unify. If we can't at least come together, then we will forever deal with unfortunate situations as the Bankroll passing. Bankroll was a good guy and it hurt me when I got the news. I send prayers and condolences to his family.
