DJ Craze is a living legend, and we in Miami are spoiled to call him our own.
Sometimes, we need a reminder that the rest of the world looks to the three-time DMC solo world champion for technical advice and musical direction. Sometimes, we need to see how much they want him to come back to whatever-the-hell town in some other country on some other continent to know how fortunate we are.
And while we’re at it... Sometimes, we want to know what naughty things he wants to do to Hillary Clinton.
To satisfy all those needs, Craze did a Reddit AMA yesterday in celebration of his latest EP release, Baby Gurl. It was a chance for fans from all around the globe to come together in one forum and ask weird, pertinent, or totally out-of-left-field questions. We picked through to find our favorite moments. Enjoy.
