WU WORLDWIDE DJ COALITON FEATURE DJ GHETTO

Kenya DeLoach, a.k.a.,DJ Ghetto,Ken Khaoss and Reverend Nightmare of the Action Figure Crew,first became interested in DJing from watching his older cousin DJ Kid Swift, who would leave church early so that he could come home and cut in his church clothes. Also seeing neighborhood DJs setting up their equipment on their front porches and doing block parties. He was really impressed with the way that the DJs scratched and mixed in the records keeping the crowd alive. After witnessing this along with hearing stories about great party DJs like the legendary DJ Lightnin’ Rich, Kenya became determined to just get some DJ equipment as soon as he was old enough to work. Later he started to lose interest in just doing parties because of the declining appreciation and knowledge of hip hop and the recognition of DJs as hip hop artists. With this negative school of thought becoming wide spread with young people, he then decided just to concentrated on being an artist and perfecting his skills to live hip hop. He linked up with DJ Dice who was in his art class at Overbrook H.S. and they would practice on his tables, they watched videos like the one of crew mate, DJ Miz winning the New Music Seminars (NMS) Battle for world supremacy and vowed to bring the title back home. 

 In 1989, He got a job working at local drug store and saved up and bought one Technics SL1200 turntable and a Gemini mixer from Kid Swift. DJ Ghetto perfected his scratching on this one turntable and continued to work until he was able to purchase another turntable. He linked up with crew mate, DJ Kid Kaos, a protégé of Swift and the two would battle each other every week. Ghetto toured around the city battling and defeating many DJs and competing in talent shows and local organized battles that became popular after the release of the movie JUICE.

 

In 1992 Ghetto was invited to compete in the supremacy but had to abort the trip to NYC because of severe weather and traffic, but was able to compete the following two years going up against top DJs like DJ Rectangle (DMC US Champion), Mr. Sinister (X-cutioners),DJ Short Kut (Scratchpklz),DJ Noise (NMS Champion), DJ Supreme (NMS Champion), and DJ Vanguard(JUICE),he was eliminated the first time on a very controversial call by the judges.

DJ Roc Raida (X-cutioners),

After being seen worldwide on the DMC video tapes Ghetto recorded with Bomb Hip Hop Magazines Return of the DJ Compilation Album, the music that he did on that album was featured in the movie Scratch,he has also made appearances in the Battlesounds Documentary, and On The Go Magazines Street Soldierz Video. He got to go out on tours opening up for artist like DAS EFX, Dougie Fresh, and ONYX. He has since toured the US with the RZA, and the world with the Spooks. Ghetto came home from these tours still hungry, still battling DJs in one on one battles, also going on the radio to battle defeating everyone including that weekly battle’s previous champions, becoming an undisputed champion of champions.
