” Tat Money Speaks “
Just got back from Portland, Oregon for a 48 hour heavy digging experience….I was pleasantly surprised that “P-Town” had so many top notch record stores ( Big up to my man C-SLAYER for showing me around and opening up his private collection for the kid )..
Anyway, now that I’m back in Vietnam, California expect extreme heat on the blog this week….Another legendary Philly DJ gets the interview treatment : the good dude over at the OLD TO THE NEW BLOG recently rocked a interview with TAT MONEY……….Say word.
“Where were you hoping your passion for deejay-ing was going to lead to back then?
“I always knew that I could do something with it, but exactly what I didn’t know. I wanted to be in the game real bad and I felt like I was so close to it that I could almost reach out and touch it. So it was frustrating in a sense even though I always felt like I could make it happen. So to make it happen, I got my myself a job in a local record store because I’d read that Mantronik had used to work in a record store when he was trying to get into the game. So I got myself a job at the best record store in town, which was Funk-O-Mart downtown. I went down there two times and brought a ton of records. It must have been about a hundred and fifty dollars worth of records. It was a whole lot of records. I could barely even carry them home (laughs). The second time I went in there the owner saw me and was like, ‘You know a lot about records. Do you want a job?’ and I said ‘Yes!’ It happened just like that which was exactly what I wanted to happen. So I started working there every day.”
