It's actually a long story. I was 15 in New Jersey at a club with my cousin and she took me to the DJ booth where her friend was spinning. He asked if I DJed and to be cool I said "yes." He said he had to piss and to take care of his next mix. He showed me and it looked easy. So, I grabbed the record pushed it back and forth on beat and then moved the crossfader like he showed me. And it was on beat! When he got back he said, "This is DJ Jimmy Jam on 95.5 WAYV hanging out with my boy who looks like he's from Hollywood, DJ Hollywood here at Tatengers Nightclub." I kept it.
