As I am sitting in my new Lab and cutting it up on the Numark V7's (be on the lookout for the review coming very soon!!!), I can't help but to think of the DJ that got me into scratching in the first place...The Grandmaster DJ Qbert! I remember back in the 90's when he would just destroy any set of decks that was placed in front of him. Or when he would put out one of those wacky and crazy instructional videos featuring the whole Invisibl Skratch Piklz Team (with DJ Q-bert, Mix Master Mike, and DJ Apollo, who left the group in 1993. The group later added DJ Disk, Shortkut, DJ Flare, Yogafrog, D-Styles, and A-Trak). It's not like this is some old school guy who is no longer relevant, as he is still killing it to this day! From juggling, to drumming, to inventing scratches, Qbert has proved to the World that he is truly one of a kind and definitely worthy of being called one of the greatest DJ's to ever touch a set of turntables. He was recently entered into the DMC hall of fame where he achieved the following victories (Some say that if he never stopped entering DMC, he would have possibly won 4 more titles):
-DMC USA Champion 1991 (Solo)
-DMC World Champion 1992 - Rock Steady DJs (Qbert, Mixmaster Mike & Apollo)
-DMC World Champion 1993 - Dreamteam (Qbert & Mixmaster Mike)
-DMC World Champion 1994 - Dreamteam (Qbert & Mixmaster Mike)
I could go on and on, but as DJ Qbert has proved time and time again....Actions speak louder than words...
