This week Melly Starz interviews a well-known deejay, Deejay X Seven. He started his career as a deejay when he was shown a program called Virtual dj. He wasn’t taking it seriously but still did private events and was the official deejay for a local rapper. What really inspired Deejay X Seven to take things seriously was his son. While in the womb his son was very responsive to the music that X Seven would play. Now he is a constant reminder for X Seven to keep moving forward and working hard. Which he definitely has. He has worked at a wide array of clubs such as Mekka, Kaffé Krystal, Café Bodegita, Nocturnal, KCafe, and even Skyline among many others.

He is the oldest of four and because of it he has amazing leadership skills. He describes himself as an artist in every sense of the word since he is a triple threat. He is a visual artist as well as a rapper whom also writes poetry. Ph-Lobby graduated with his Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from Alabama State University in Montgomery, Alabama. One thing that he discovered while in school there was how to hone his artist abilities in literature. He hopes to begin the journey of pursuing his Master’s in Media Design and Technology from Full Sail University starting by the end of this year. He has worked as a substitute teacher and as we know every experience helps us in life.
