Virginia rap veteran Mad Skillz wears many hats. The MC, producer, videgrapher and DJ spent a month in Europe as the official DJ for Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint Tour.
“I always knew how to DJ,” he says in this clip. “If you look at a lot of older Mad Skillz records back in the day I was doing scratches on my own stuff. I was one of those kids that grew up on hip-hop. We did everything. Where I come from we did all of the elements of hip-hop but I just did rapping better. But I could always DJ.”
Here he discusses the tour, his favorite DJ and his new found passion for being behind the turntables.
