Biography

DJ Rashad’s music addiction manifested at age three when he was applauded and in demand for his aping of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. His commanding performance was reveled at family activities, gatherings and barbeques. His parents, impressed by his natural rhythm and timing, enrolled him in music lessons where he mastered the guitar, the drums and the keyboard. DJ Rashad’s talent was soon noted by band instructors where he was “sanctioned” as the solo drummer. His distinctive percussion and acoustic skills earned him the role as the “closer” for school concerts. From there he progressed to performing at talent shows where he used his keyboard to reproduce “sounds”. But it was at 12 that the DJ began to develop a real appreciation for his culture and the “true” music. On a lark, he auditioned for a DJ slot on the renowned WKKC 89.3 radio in Chicago where he was immediately hired and began spinning sounds that soon bonded with him. The early influences of DJs’ Deeon, PJ, Monte and Milton took hold and there was no turning back. DJ Rashad was hooked on Ghetto House Music and there would be no denying him the right and the stage to showcase his talents. He along with friends and co-producers DJs Clent and Spinn soon became the faces of the “Beatdown” Label where true underground music connoisseurs flocked. They also began collaborating with DJ Gant-Man, whom DJ Rashad met and worked with during his early days WKKC.
