Luxetips Kids! DJ Kidd Koby Roc
Find joy in life!
A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of hanging out at Whiskey Park Lounge at the W Midtown listening to the tunes of DJ Kidd Koby Roc.
DJ Kidd Koby Roc is a musical sensation and he has been DJing since he was 9 years old. Wow! He is now 16 and a major force to be reckoned with.
He was KILLING it at Whiskey Park and I was eager to learn the story of this talented teen. He graciously agreed to give Luxetips! an interview and he is an inspiration to kids and adults alike. Check out what he had to say:
Luxetips: Thank you for the interview. You were incredible last week at Whiskey Park! What sparked your interest in being a DJ?
Kidd Koby Roc: My Dad purchased my older brother a set of turntables and I would watch my brother DJ. My father was into music as well and he and my brother would do DJ battles. Later my brother went to the Army and I begin using his turntables and loved it! This is how was introduced to DJing.
Luxetips: When was your first professional show?
Kidd Koby Roc: My first professional event occurred when I was 11 years old. My family owned a record and cosmetics store in East Atlanta and I would DJ outside the store. As a result, the barbershop next door hired me to DJ and I made my first $100. After that, I was hired by the rapper T.I. to DJ for his school community tour aimed at stopping the violence in schools. After the T.I. event I begin to get more offers to work and the offers just kept pouring in.
Luxetips: Wow! So have you worked with any other famous entertainers?
Kidd Koby Roc: Yes. I have worked with Wacka Flocka, Future, Gucci Mane, Travis Porter, OMG Girlz, Lil Twist, and Young Tone.
Luxetips: Who are your role models in this industry?
Kidd Koby Roc: I love DJ Jazzy Jeff. He is someone I look up to and admire. I watch his Performances on YouTube religiously. I also l love Dead Mouse. I would travel anywhere in the world to see Dead Mouse!
Luxetips: DJ Kidd Koby Roc, you have accomplished a lot in a short period of time. I can’t believe you are only 16. What are your ultimate career goals as you develop as an artist?
Kidd Koby Roc: My goals are to be famous and known for DJing because it is what I love. However, I also want to be known as one of the top producers in the world. I do make beats and I want to become a mega-producer.
Luxetips: And I know you will! I can’t wait to see your next DJ set. Thank you for your time DJ Kidd Koby Roc.
Kidd Koby Roc: Thank you!
