In a recent interview with Billboard, the official Seahawks DJ DV One revealed that he’s in a bind when it comes to playing any Future during home games, even though all the players want to hear Hendrix:
Among the players, last year it was Drake and Rick Ross. This year, I’ve been getting a lot of requests for Future. But that dynamic is weird too, because I can barely play Future with Ciara running around and that’s her baby’s dad. It’s just that he has a dope-[expletive] album out right now, players like to hear it, it definitely gets you pumped up—even though it’s low-tempo, it’s still stuff that you want to hear—and then you’ve got Ciara running up with little baby Future and she’s dating Russell so it’s like, “Oh f–k.”
If they were to ask me to play “Tony Montana” I’d be like, get the hell out of here. If they ask me to play “Commas” or “Trap N—-s” or any of this type of [stuff], I’m playing that all day. It’s a weird balance—how do I play this and feel comfortable?
I also feel weird playing Ciara, because I was playing Ciara before she started dating Russell. I’d play “Goodies” and stuff like that for the crowd because it’s good music that white people know—it’s dance-y music, it’s popular, it’s stuff that you can get away with playing. Now that she’s dating Russell, I don’t want people to be like, “He’s just playing that because she’s dating Russell.”
