Last night was an amazing night in the DJ Community. Last night in San Francisco was the US National Red Bull 3Style Finals. An eclectic group of insanely talented DJ's took the stage to battle it out and see who would come out on top. Talent such as Chris Villa, Fingersmith, Matsu, and Dynamax crushed their sets.
However last night, it was the hometown hero who came out victorious. DJ LazyBoy, who has been battling skin cancer since 1996 and recently had surgery to continue fighting it, was crowned the US Champion!
LazyBoy has been relentless in the DJ battle community for a number of years and last night he was sharp, funny, and incredibly skilled in his set. All of these attributes led to him grabbing that title of Champion and has taught us all a valuable lesson along the way.
He posted on his instagram that his computer was having problems before the event and that if the event would've been anywhere else but SF, he might've not been able to compete because of health issues. However he never gave up. He knew how valuable this moment was and that he had to seize his opportunity.
LazyBoy has taught us again the age old lesson of no matter what. He was going to show up as focused as ever , no matter what. He was going to compete and win, no matter what.
Congratulations to DJ LazyBoy for being this years 2019 Red Bull 3Style US National Champion! Good Luck in the Finals!
Many people have asked me how is it possible that I have 3 kids, two which are newborn twins, and still have the time to make music, record videos, and record and engineer projects for artists. The short answer is I have an amazing wife that helps me schedule all of this out! ❤️
Just last night my wife and I planned out the times that I would need to step out for the week and having a support system like that is amazing. It’s not easy and I know there are days that I don’t want to even open my computer because my motivation is so low.
However I know that quitting is the easy way out. I learned that at a young age and learned that the most best rewards are the most difficult to reach. I am fortunate to be from a family of immigrants because they taught me to never settle with what you have. They came to the United States with nothing and have blessed us with the opportunity to attend college and now start my own music business.
So sure settling/quitting is a for sure thing but you’ll never know what you could’ve achieved.
