DJ Espo - 2001 Mixtape (The Beginning)

DJ Espo - 2001 Mixtape (The Beginning)

Playing tracks by

Ic Presents Show, Jagged Edge, Busta Rhymes, 112, Juvenile and more.

There's actually a story that goes with this mix. Before the story though - I recorded this with hopes of it landing in the hands of someone who could help me get on. Meaning, a club gig, house party, ANYTHING. I wanna say I even made a few copies of it and gave it to some friends.

So here's the story!

I had my first ever club gig opening up at this local teen party. A big radio DJ was headlining the club that night, and I gave him a copy of this same mix (Shout out to Chris the Rebel!)

From what people tell me, another DJ I was running with at the time, gave Chris or somebody else that worked at the radio station MY mix, and told them it was his :(

So the radio guys ended up realizing the mix was actually mine, and the boss at the radio station (Jazzy Jim) wanted to meet me. I stole my Moms car (sorry Mom) and drove to the record store Jazzy had just opened up (Straight Hits Vinyl Shop) - that day he told me he heard my tape and asked if I wanted to come DJ on the radio.

J, this is an awesome mix and the story behind it is even better. Much respect for the hustle and being one of the realest DJs to ever do it.

I remember you giving us a mix tape and we were like, “Hell no he didn’t do that!”. It was so good and you were so young, we didn’t believe it. You are gifted, J. Keep rockin it! Love watching you rise.
