The Heat Magazine: What’s your point of view on violence in New Orleans?

D.J. Slash: It’s out of hand and it’s self genocide within our own communities. No amount of police presence will curb the problems of inferior education systems, poverty, unemployment, the so called war on drugs and effects of Willie Lynchism.

The Heat Magazine: The Heat understands you are a true hip hop enthusiast, how does that affect you as a deejay/producer?
