His favorite anecdote from The Art Behind the Tape:
It’s funny that you asked that question. One of the cool stories is that Ron G told me he grew up across the street from The Rooftop Nightclub in Harlem. So as a kid, he used to look outside the window and listen to Brucie B get busy and that’s kind of how he learned how to DJ. That’s how he learned how to DJ. When he got into the game, he kind of patterns his movements similar to Kid Capri’s, because he was the trendsetter for how mixtapes were made and marketed. Just listening to Ron G, one of the greatest mixtapes DJs of all time, tell the story about how he was inspired and how he made his mark — to me that’s that King shit right there. That’s the shit that I want to tell. These stories are really important, it wasn’t just one guy doing it and influencing. It was one guy doing it and everybody following and going in their own direction after they learned how to work. You feel me?
