The Philadelphia bred DJ, who was the first DJ inducted into Technics' DJ Hall of Fame, is known for revolutionizing the art of turntablism by with the "transformer," "Pee Herman" and "Chirp" styles of scratching, cited shady music business practices as the main reason he was quitting.
"The music is fun but dealing with these agents & promoters is overbearing for me (personally)," DJ Cash Money revealed. "I have no regrets as I have had one hell of a career...This is a soul searching decision that this business is just not healthy for me."
