"DJ Mary Mac was introduced to the art of turntables and mixing by her older brother while he practiced daily in the basement of their family’s Queens, NY home. With a combination of natural talent and passion, she quickly made a name for herself as a sought-after female DJ. She was soon approached by Def Jam A&R as she was spinning at a NYC loft party. She was asked to DJ for their newest hip-hop artist [Boss]. This is the position that led to her involvement in the nationwide Phat Jam Tour, which featured Def Jam recording artists Run DMC, Redman and Onyx. She is consistently exemplifying her role as a pioneer for female DJs and aggressively paves a path for the next generation of female DJs. It is truly just a matter of time before the world is awakened by the full impact of DJ Mary Mac... the international premier female DJ!"
"Hailing from Brooklyn, Big Ben is a prominent name in the New York nightlife circuit, having mastered moving the crowd at an early age. Ben was inspired to become a DJ by his older brother, a disco DJ. Big Ben discovered Hip-Hop on his first trip to the record store and has not looked back since. He deejayed his first party at the age of 14, and by 19 he broke into the NYC club scene, where he started being booked at the hottest clubs and catching the attention of NYC's most exclusive party promoters as well as record label reps."
"Hailing from Flatbush, Brooklyn, DJ Profile has been an industry magnate from 2002. On the wheels, he's dj'd alongside the greats, Funk Flex, Mister Cee, Max Glazer, DJ Self, Cipha Sounds and Q-Tip, just to name a few. In his mild-mannered life, the 34-year old is editor and writer for magazines such as KING, XXL and Vibe".
"DJ Spinna is something of an anomaly in music. A humbling example of what it takes to truly succeed within the framework of multiple fields. With a steadfast work ethic, an obsessively extensive vinyl library and the willingness to pursue the full extents of his roots (Funk, Soul R&B and Jazz), foundation (Hip-Hop) and future (Electronic/Dance music) without any restraints. A cornerstone of Hip-Hop’s late 90’s indie-uprise, DJ Spinna made much of his first impression on listeners as the musical background of his group The Jigmastas as well as providing the canvas for an array of that era’s lyrical giants including Eminem, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch and De La Soul."
Well they said 30 Days, 30 DJ's & 30 Mixes, well they got 2 out of 3, LOL, guess they couldn't find 30 different DJ's so they doubled up? Oh well not too worry, Mister Cee is a quality DJ, I don't mind if they double up on him :P
"Mister Cee made his mark in the industry as the DJ for the legendary Big Daddy Kane as well as the man that discovered the late Notorious Biggie Smalls. Cee can be heard weekdays during his Mister Cee at Noon segment where he plays a mix of your favorite throwback tunes and current Hip Hop and R&B hits. Known as The Finisher, Brooklyn born Cee also “finishes up strong” with the “Friday Nite Live” show alongside J. Medina."
Ill mix of Funk and Rock Bboy breaks.
Unfortunately I only have 128 kbps rip of the mix.
39 minutes of pure dopeness.

"Hailing from Queens New York, DJ Freedom Child brings a purist sensibility to his DJing. From an early age he tried to reproduce the techniques and sound of Marley Marl from the Marley Marl In Control show on 107.5 WBLS that he listened to as a kid on the living room stereo. He was one of the DJs of the Nocturnal Transmissions radio show on 105.9."
"Joseph Rizzo a.k.a. “DJ Riz” was born and raised in Brooklyn. His father bought him his first turntable at the age of 14. It was in college when Riz first started doing radio. He DJ’d on the famous “P5” hip hop show at Hofstra with Jeff Foss. Furthermore, he did “The Hip Hop Spot” with Wildman Steve at Adelphi University in which they won “Best College Hip Hop Radio Show” at the Gavin Seminar in 1995. These 2 stations were instrumental in the late 80’s & early 90’s for numerous talents in Hip-Hop."
"Born in The Bronx New York, DJ 4our 5ive found his first love of Hip Hop. 4our 5ive moved to Brentwood Long Island where he attended Brentwood High School with the rap duo EPMD. He collaborated with the group to lay scratches on their debut album Strictly Business, released in 1988. 4our 5ive later went on to what was his first 40 city tour, Run’s House headlined by the legendary RUN DMC & Jam Master Jay. Since then he has worked with artist such as Craig Mack, Notorious B.I.G, Diddy, Ma$e, Charli Baltimore, Jim Jones, Cam’ron, JoJo, Lil Cease, Lil Kim, Fabolous, Jay-Z, Young Jeezy & Lil Wayne."
"This DJ does more than keep the party hype. He’s given the difficult task of forging intimate relationships by creating memories through melodies. Already regarded as one of Chocolate City’s best disc jockeys, DJ Alizay’s life story is propelled by his love of the two turntables.
As far as tune selection goes, this is probably my favorite so far out of the series but that been said I haven't really had a chance to listen to all of them in their entirety.
"Mr. Choc undeniably stands as one of the most successful, accomplished and skilled DJs of all time. 'There are DJs that are artists and that make records sing, and then there are DJs that are record players,' he says. 'And I don't feel that I'm a record player.' Neither does anyone who has seen him in action."
