In each major city, there are very few DJs that have been able to make a significant stance after being dormant for nearly a decade. DJ Heron of Miami is that guy who didn’t just resurrected his brand, but also the Hip hop scene in Miami. He has made himself so relevant, that we felt it was imperative for people to know his past. Heron didn’t build his rep over night, so we had to sit down with him and document his humble beginning. This is the first of a multi-part interview.
In this interview learn about how he and DJ Khris.. aka DJ Klassik brought NY hip Hop to Miami while in high school, among ther stories.

About DJ Heron
It would be cliché if this piece began with tell tales of DJ Heron’s upbringing during a time when Hip Hop was merely an embryo in the now multi-billion-dollar industry, or by overconfidently assuring the reader of just how dope DJ Heron is. So instead, let’s just spew out the facts; this man has opened up for so many of Hip Hop’s prominent acts. And if that’s not enough, DJ Heron is responsible for the infamous yearly tribute weekend to one of Hip Hop’s most impactful producers and rappers of our generation; Slum Village group member, James Dewitt Yancy, better known as J Dilla. Yet and still, DJ Heron’s boast list doesn’t end there. He has DJ’d for a long list of artists and has closely worked on projects with one which he calls his mentor, DJ Maseo of De La Soul.
