Who is DJ Nez?
Representing Atlanta, GA by way of Flint, Michigan, DJ Nez is one of the hardest working DJs in Atlanta. Like many DJs, he got his start doing house parties and various events around the city. He quickly became a master at mixing. Just ask V-103, as DJ Nez placed in the top two of the station’s DJ Mixing Contest in Atlanta, GA. His unique style of blending records in ways never thought possible quickly caught the attention of one of the Southeast’s most known DJs…..the legendary DJ T-Roc of Rocharder Entertainment. Once on board with Rocharder and ideas and plans started to flow, DJ Nez was essential in the next step: the now world famous Rocharder DJs was formed with DJ Nez being named the President. The Rocharder DJ coalition has grown to over 90 hand selected DJs who play throughout Atlanta, New York, DC, Dallas, Jackson, Nashville, San Antonio, Birmingham, Jacksonville, Baltimore, Philadelphia and other major cities as well as internationally in locations such as Germany and France. After years of experience and gaining expertise and valuable industry connections, he was coined as a celebrity show and tour DJ and hired to serve as the official DJ for musical legend and platinum recording artist Jesse Johnson (The Time/Purple Rain). DJ Nez has been a DJ for and worked with such acts as the Shop Boyz, Cash Out, Syleena Johnson, 2Chainz, Young LA, DFB (Parlae, Buddie), Tay Dizm, Ray Lavender, Archie Eversole and more. He was tagged as the feature DJ for SESAC's Strip Showcase in Atlanta spinning for top up and coming artists for major industry influencers such as mogul LA Reid, and providing music for a crowd of music industry excutives and fans alike. DJ Nez is a major supporter of independent artists, before they make it big. He has supported and can be credited for breaking such records as, to name a few, J Futuristic’s (Formerly JMoney) “First Name Last Name”, Shawty Lo’s “Foolish”, R.Kelly’s “Supaman High” featuring OJ da Juiceman, TKNCash’s (Disturbing Tha Peace) “1 of Deze”, and Yung D’s (Three 6 Mafia/Hypnotize Minds) “Don’t I Look Good”. He has been featured in Hip Hop Weekly, Rocharder Magazine, SIR Magazine, Six Twelve Magazine, Hot Block Magazine as well as Ozone Magazine. He truly supports the locals and was nominated for DJ of the Year at the Hot Block Awards in Atlanta. DJ Nez is known not only for blending and record breaking, but he is also the Atlanta DJ who comes to mind when seeking versatility.
Because of his unmatched professionalism and versatility, he was snagged by the ultra luxurious Mandarin Oriental of Buckhead as their on-call DJ, allowing him to play for a host of major influencers and professionals within Atlanta's elite circles. He may be seen spinning one night at an upscale downtown venue with a capacity of 2000 plus, another night at Crucial (purely urban hip-hop/rap), and yet another night at a local tavern spinning Old School R&B, and keeping each crowd rocking! His versatility has positioned him as a go to DJ for select corporate events and political mixers, upscale boutique events, nationally publicized charity events) private parties at fashion boutiques and celebrity shows and tours. He has been seen as a celebrity DJ on television shows such as Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and R&B Divas for VH-1 and TVOne.

Currently you can find him moving the crowd at several venues throughout the country as his travel work resume continues to grow. DJ Nez keeps his ears to the music of the streets, head to the sky and yet his heart remains in the community.
Dedicated to the game as well as the youth, DJ Nez was the feature DJ for Project Walk a Mile in My Shoes, a national charity campaign to collect and distribute shoes for the less fortunate. Major supporters included notables such as Russell Simmons and Diddy, who also featured the charity event on his blog. DJ Nez hosted the official mixtape for the event.
