During his development as a DJ, he also got involved in production and artistry. He started doing house parties,
talent shows, community functions, and clubs. Later around early 1988, he started recording music in the studio
with some
Close friends (B.O.B/N.O.N) in Knoxville, Tennessee and developed valuable production and performance skills
that developed at a rapid pace. Around 1989, he and the group started doing openings for major artists such as:
Kool Moe
Dee, MC Lyte, and Biz Markie. Shortly after, the group experienced failures with record deals and having to
learn the way of the industry the hard way.

the past and learned that proper management was a major piece missing from the equation and this lead
his group to their failures. DJ Easy B started developing relationships with individuals in management, radio,
and high media positions the lessons that he learned from those individuals taught him more about the industry
the other side of the fence. Attending college as a media major also helped him to understand, develop, and
arm himself with the right intellect to survive in this industry.
