Thanks Soul! Was Suppose To Check Scratch Out Wit EPMD At The Rock The Bells Last Year Here In Toronto But As He Came Out To Get Setup Some F.A.G. Threw A Bottle At Him, Hit Him In The Chest, Beer All Over His Decks, Mixer & Laptop. Scratch Ripped Off His Shirt Threw It In The Crowd & Started To Yell For The Person To Come Forward & Man Up With Him Backstage. Guy Was Too Pussy No One Pointed Him Out Or Saw Anything Which I Didn't Get, I Was Too Far Back To See Or I Would Of Grabbed Him For Making Me Miss EPMD ! Maybe The Extra Hour Wait In Line, The Promise Of Raekwon, Redman, Smif-N-Wessun, Supernatural & EPMD But Only Supernat & EPMD Showing Up As Well As The Long Ass Wait In Between Sets Had Something To Do Wit It But Still...

Excellent, thanks Soul. Saw DJ Scratch with EPMD in London back in the day. Displayed plenty of skills that night including taking his sweatshirt off whilst keeping the scratch going. Love it when he drops Pal Joey in at the end of the mix there. Cheers!

Wow... Let it be known that Scratch is good peoples and is a legend when it comes to the DJ game... When u see him, show him respect or u might get smacked (literally).

Scratch kills it on here, I have a clip of him from WNYU and he does some of the same routines. That Kid Capri is dope too. Keep up the good mixes

good looks. Never met scratch or anything like that but like anyone who owns turntables i'm a huge fan.

One reason I'll always respect scratch is i was browsing myspace one time, and I think it was Bob James site..and scratch had left a message on there letting Bob know how much he appreciated his music. For some reason seeing him do that always stuck in my head.
