DJ Xclusive City, grew up under the influence of his Haitian parents, who migrated from Haiti to the US and really had to struggle to provide for five children while working multiple jobs. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, and fell in love with music at a young age. He used to accompany his parents to church where he began playing the drums at church, then later picking up the bass guitar and teaching himself how to play that as well. During this time, the young boy spent a lot of time sitting by the radio listening to DJs patiently waiting for them to play his favorite songs so he could record them. Around 12 years old, he began making mixtapes for his classmates, using a CD burner and old hip-hop records he borrowed from his uncle. Xclusive City even helped his uncle’s crew in carrying equipment, loading-trucks, and wrapping wires.
Xclusive City’s time with his uncles and other musicians instilled passion and love for music, specifically DJing. What made him admire these professionals the most was the way they were able to control the music., how their tracks pumped people up with excitement, and how beautifully they can make the audience shake their bodies.
