the Ann Arbor News, a portion of the money was raised from events in Washington

D.C. and New York, while the rest came from private donations in Disco D’s memory.

in to lead workshops and teach the teens the various aspects of turntablism. The

teens also want to paint a mural on the wall in honor of Disco D’s memory. Disco

D was an upcoming producer who crafted tracks like 50 Cent’s "The Ski Mask
