DJ Adam D is a hip-hop DJ/guru on WCBG where he hosts the show Only Built 4 Wagner College. He is also a senior marketing major here at Wagner and has had a love for hip-hop music since he was in middle school. His show is Thursdays at 8:00 PM and he brings the freshest beats and the hottest bars. I sat down with him to ask him 5 quick questions.
You’re one of our most energetic DJs. What do you do to get yourself in the proper headspace prior to your broadcast?
I have a certain routine. I go to my internship on Thursdays during the day - so that’s a little inside look into my life- and I get back from that at around 4:30. I’m really busy so after that I go back to my room and start thinking about what new music I’ve heard during the week, and what’s been going on in the hip-hop world. Next I prepare myself mentally and get ready for my fans to hear me loud and clear.
Do you play mostly underground artists on your show?
I do play music by underground artists but I wouldn’t say mostly. I play a good mix of underground stuff, what’s popular now, and some old school classics.
So who should we keep our ears out for right now?
Bones! He’s someone who I’ve really been fucking with lately. Not only him but all of Team Sesh which is his group. Bones, Eddy Baker, Chris Travis, and Xavier Wulf are the rappers and they have top notch producers like Cat Soup, Drew the Architect, 50 Grand, Greafer and others. You definitely won’t hear them on the mainstream radio but you will hear them on my show.
Awesome. So I understand that you like to freestyle…
(proceeds to freestyle)
Yo yo I gotta say one thing yo yo you are listening to WCBG – Radio and this is my show and I gots the flow to bring it and y’all could just sing it take and go home yea and bring it back 1, 2 … 3, 4 I say that shit and they bring it to the floor, right now everybody storms the crowd and I jump up and down and they get real loud and you could see how I’m goin you could see me flex! Everybody askin me yo whats next? Yah!!!
Have you heard of any interesting news in the hip-hop world lately?
Yes, of course! There was something with Lil Uzi Vert that happened recently. His Instagram got hacked and a couple of his songs were leaked, I’m honestly not sure if it was a publicity stunt or not. Check out his Instagram if you haven’t seen it yet, really weird stuff. And as always check out my show Only Built 4 Wagner College on WCBG-Radio.com Thursdays at 8:00 PM Eastern Time baby! I have been DJ Adam D and I bring it live and direct kickin’ it real smooth. Peace!
