This week we have the man known as DJ HULLEWUD. I've known HULLE for a minute now, and he is super passionate about hip hop, and more specifically, the hip hop community surrounding us. Incredibly humble, and always amassed in the hip hop scene in London, Ontario, Hullewud is without a doubt--the backbone to the scene here.
I asked him to write a quick little bio, so you could get to know him:
I was first exposed to rap in 1984 when I purchased the “Breakdance” compilation on K-Tel Records. This transformed into a small period of attempting to be a breakdancer. Become more heavily interested in 1986 when Run-DMC dropped “Raising Hell”...been a hip hop head ever since. My first experience DJ’ing came when I met DJ Res and saw his basement of records and equipment. I purchased my first turntables in 1990 on a summer trip to Chicago. My dad is heavily into music as well and you could pretty much find us digging in every record store we could find on our various trips to Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Calgary, etc.
Was the resident DJ for Dirty Thursdays, Fresh Fridays, Renaissance and also DJ on Sausage Gut Radio on CHRW 94.9FM. I’ve had the privilege of being a personal DJ for Maestro Fresh Wes, Choclair, Dan-e-o, RA The Rugged Man and Fatlip over the years at various events in various cities...the biggest being with Maestro in front of 5000 people in Goderich for the Hurrican Relief Event. I’ve also DJ’ed at Wakestock in Collingwood and other events throughout Ontario.
Been involved with Crate Crusaders, Top Billin’ Entertainment and most recently “Sons Of Boombap”.
