Even though DJ Ritz aims to be The World Favorite Cracker, there's more to this Tampa native than a po white trash schtick. He has been a deejay for nearly a decade, releasing MIX CD's hosted by luminaries like Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz, Pitbull, DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia, Young Buck of G-Unit and the list goes on. He got his deejaying start in the mid-90s using the turntables at a local record store for $10 an hour. After four months, he had saved enough money to buy his first pair of Technics 1200 and it was onward and upward since then. His next move was a power move joining Mad Linx’s Tactics and Methods record pool, establishing him as a street-team grinder. Soon, his turntable skills, as well as his passion and ear for music, landed him a slot with Linx’s deejay squad The Shut It Down Squad. Linx, Ritz, DJ Silent Rage, DJ Knucklez, DJ Q-45, DJ LowDown, Tony Montana, DJ Ryno & DJ Mingle Mixx. DJ Ritz and his work have been featured in several online and print publications including MTV.com and Ozone Magazine. Ritz dropped his first Mix CD, "Show You" in 2002, and is currently preparing for a bomb-filled 2009, with WMNF's Saturday Night Shutdown every Sat. Night/Sun. Morning from 12am - 3am and as official deejay for Mo Gutta Game. Stay tuned.
