Interview with DJ Nero Maserati @ChiTownDjNero

At what age did you decide to become a DJ?

 I started in the 80's at 13yrs old in Chicago. Then our music was House music and Steppers music. I was introduced to hip-hop from the Sugar Hill Gang and progressed into listening to Gangster Rap music. We had a station  that is still currently on WHPK 88.1. After that I changed my prospective music choice and fell into the Urban scene.

Name a few of your biggest influences in hip hop? 

I was influenced by both coast (West and East), the South, and the Midwest. I can't just name one artist or group. But I can say the 80's Era of hip-hop and rap (gangster) was my influences.

What are some of the things you’re working on right now?

 Right now I'm pushing my mixtapes and soon in 2015 dropping official singles. I'm currently releasing my mixtapes through several sites: SPINRILLA, DATPIFF, MIXCONNECT. You can find my collection by searching Dj Nero Maserati on any one of those sites. My collection is at over 120,000 views, 6,000 downloads, and 20,000 streams. Soon I will be launching my own website and tripling those numbers.

What advice can you give other upcoming artists and or DJ's?

 Invest in your self. Believe in your business. Understand the business. Take constructive advice and put real people in your corner. "Yes" men are low key haters. Everything don't sound or look good. Put time into what you do(practice, practice, practice). In order to be great at your craft rather rapper, singer, or dj you have to work at it.

How has life changed for you since becoming a DJ?

 I meet a lot of national and local artist. Doing shows living my dream. Becoming the owner of the Rap Factory. 

Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?

 I have played at a lot of clubs. Also dj for many national acts such as Project Pat, Travis Porter, Waka Flocka, Maino, Yo-Yo, and Scarface to name a few.

Are there any artists/talent that you’ve worked with that we should be watching? 

The artist I can point out is myself. Chicago's Hottest Dj Nero Maserati. Look out for more mixtapes and the premier of my singles and Ep. Also the launch of my website. Check my collection out on SPINRILLA
