Swizz Beatz Introduces
Alicia Keys DJ AK-47 to the World…
After her husband Swizzy got a little tired of spinning for the crowd at a recent party at Yotel in NYC, talented wifey Alicia Keys was asked if she wanted to show off her skills on the 1’s and 2’s. It was at that moment, as the lights began flickering on her jacket, that DJ AK-47 was born…
That’s some Black Moon, Gangstarr, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, and more that she was rocking. Based off the song selection alone, I’d say she’s on the right path, but what do truly genuine DJs think about this? Can anyone spin a few songs and then call themselves a DJ?

Regardless of what the general opinion of DMX’s latest acts and actions are, he hasn’t been arrested, and seems to be making a legitimate go at getting clean, sober, and back on top. We can’t hate on that, but I’m sure some of you will!
