[With the Golden State Warriors suffering a blowout Game 3 loss last night (June 8) in the NBA Finals, the team’s official deejay D Sharp breaks down their home games warm-up playlist.]
Everyone has been asking me for my playlist and I was like, “Let me put my playlist up and let me figure out a way to share it with people.” I get the requests from fans, I get it from players, everybody. So now here it is.
I think it’s really important to pay homage to the classics. I come from deejaying when we carried crates and you had to have four crates to rock a party properly. Those records are dear to me. They’re records I always play in the arena. They’re records that when I play them, people love them.
I feel like the younger generation has to know what good hip-hop is. I’m not saying this new hip-hop is bad because I love this stuff too. I love everything but we gotta pay homage. We have to give them proper credit.
I try to do that when I’m on the floor playing for the warm-up and I’m just a huge fan of hip-hop and music in general.
