King
Author will never forget the day that changed his life. During a visit
to his sister’s house as a high school student, his brother-in-law
introduced him to a set of turntables. That night, he spent hours
trying to figure out the science of mixing records. He later purchased
a set of turntables and became known as the go-to DJ for house parties
in his neighborhood.


Now as a
member of the Super Friends, King Author is making sure that the world
recognizes his skills on the wheels of steel.

“I had the talent, but it took a minute for me to get on,” King Author
says. “But once I got down with DJ Scorpio, everything snowballed for
me. I was everywhere and before I knew it, I was on the radio at Hot
107.9.”


King Author’s rise with Scorpio began in 2002 when the two revived the
Atlanta club, The Library. “Nobody really cared about The Library at
first,” he says. “But Scorpio threw a birthday party and everybody came
to show love. It was so packed that there was nowhere to stand except
in the booth. From then on, The Library was packed every week.”

Although The Library has since closed, King Author continues to DJ at
clubs in Atlanta and will release several mixtapes in 2007. But with
the FBI raiding the offices of DJ Drama last March; King Author
predicts a change in the mixtape game.

“Once you sell 50 to 70,000 CDs, the FBI is going to start looking [at
your operation],” he says. “This will probably force the major labels
to sign more DJs because mixtapes are the biggest thing going now in
rap.”
