You know those nights when you decide last minute to
take a little road trip to see one of your favorites?
Found out the talented and sexy Dj June who is a resident at
in the Tropicana/Atlantic City was spinning the night of her
birthday and the guest DJ was the legendary
Now my “fan” relationship with Clinton Sparks spans over a decade plus.
Coming to NYC since ’98 I, of course, would pick up mixtapes and bring them
back home to Portland, OR to share with my “friends”.
This Boston DJ killed it every time, had the exclusives and was doing it before most.
He brought a style that I would describe as “beast mode” just listen to this intro..

So for the first time in my Hiphop career I got to see him spin live
and in the true fan form I watched, listened and made a point to tell him “I loved HIM”
while he set the tables on fire. The party-goers at Providence probably didn’t even know
what they were witnessing but I DID and loved every minute. A great venue, great drinks, great service, sexy crowd, amazing light show just to top off the whole night.
Once his set was over I of course made my way to him… couldn’t miss my chance.
I shared my admiration without sounding like a creep and of course confessed to bootleggin’
his mixtapes but hey I bet there are more people in Oregon who know who he is thanks to me.
Something about that time in Hiphop that I really miss.
So to be personally handed a mixtape from someone I use to brag about was the best ending to a great night. (except the fact that the person taking pic didn’t know how to use camera…but I don’t care if I look crazy)
But I can now cross this Dj off my bucket list.
Not that I wouldn’t want to see him again… and again but
such a pleasure to be a fan for a night.
Also found a great interview with him on HHDX from 2006
