DJ 8 Ball: DC Urban Scene's #1 DJ
"The bigger the cap, the bigger the peelin..."
It's 9:00 pm on a Thursday -- Ladies Night -- and 3000 watts of Ice Cube is pumpin outta Club V. The crowd is already jumpin to DJ 8 Ball's first song and the floor stays packed all night, with the best hip hop cuts comin one after another. That's life -- DJ 8 Ball style. And that's what's made him the Washington DC urban lifestyle's #1 DJ.

"If you feelin like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off..."
Specializing in hip-hop, R&B, and house music, DJ 8 Ball spins regularly to packed houses at DC's hottest clubs and parties. Whenever DJ 8 Ball is in the house, everybody knows where the party at.

"Let's get this party started right..."

"Don't tell me that you understand until you hear the man..."
It's not all about pimpin neither. DJ 8 Ball educates the crowds as he entertains. A proud follower of Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, he volunteers with youth organizations throughout the DC area. And when he's on the mic, DJ 8 Ball is always spreading the wisdom and the knowledge -- educating the people through music, truth, and respect.

"The darker the flesh then the deeper the roots..."
DJ 8 Ball brings his own style to clubs and parties, a blend of Southern crunk with his laid-back West Coast roots. Before bum rushin the DC club scene, he learned the ropes spinning in underground hip hop clubs all over LA. Being the best DJ in the business has been his dream and his life since he was growing up in Long Beach, watching the legends like DJ Smoove and C-Freak do their thing.

He's a partner in 187 Productions, a local music promotion and production company that showcases some of the freshest hip-hop talent in the DC area. It's been years of hard work, but he's pulled it all together to be the best. It's good on top, but you gotta keep working to stay there. Nobody knows the business like DJ 8 Ball and he's livin it every day.
