In a cosmic storm of inflection, R2DJ spins his way through POP, hip hop, dance and dubstep. Jesus and faith topics being the only underlying, unifying theme. “I like to take samples, clips, sounds, anything really, things might never have been used in a Christian setting and use them to get the crowds hyped for Christ. I truly believe that the most exciting thing happening in music today is coming from Christian music.” R2DJ started his musical journey as rapper in the Christian hip hop group ILL PROFHETZ. The group performed together for seven years and released 2 albums in that time. As members of his hop hop group pursued other adventures, R2DJ began DJing at youth conferences, weddings, school Grads or anywhere he could use his turntables to lift the name of Jesus.
