DJ EF CUTTIN: You Are Now Rockin’ With the Best

Recent NOLA Underground Hip Hop Award winner for “Hottest Club DJ”, DJ EF Cuttin has been in the music industry for a very long time.

Seasoned, experienced and extremely knowledgeable, EF Cuttin is a legend. He’s a CORE DJ, a GO DJ and a radio host. He’s also the tour DJ for one of the hottest rappers around, Curren$y.

“Thank you, and thanks to everybody who voted 4 me. I’m truly grateful.” – DJ EF Cuttin on winning a NOLA Underground Hip Hop Awards

Long known as one of the South’s go to DJs for breaking records, EF Cuttin also brings to the table a knowledge of the industry and the artists with which he works. Whether you find him on Twitter debating about one of his favorite sports teams, or in the club DJ’ing, EF Cuttin knows how to capture the attention of the masses.

We were honored to speak with EF Cuttin and here’s what he had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What music influenced you, growing up?

EF CUTTIN: I grew up on everything from soul/funk to rock to, of course, hip hop, I used to have to play the records for my mom’s parties from age 7 till I moved away, so I had a pretty diverse set (LMAO). But when I heard Grandmaster Flash cut up Chic’s “Good Times”, I knew this was what I was meant to do.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How does it feel to know that through your work, you have helped to shape a genre of music & influence an entire city’s musical tastes?

EF CUTTIN: It’s humbling. It’s a good feeling to be thought of as among the best of your profession, especially in a city as musically rich as New Orleans. It is truly an honor.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What do you see as the future of hip hop music?

EF CUTTIN: Hip Hop is cyclical, with the subject matter shifting from party, and stun’n to street politics and conscious rap to wordplay, punchlines, and cadence. That’s the cycle it will continue to run on. The key to its future lies in the quality of the product. As long as good artists continue to be heard and have an opportunity to gain listeners and fans, Hip Hop will surpass Rock N Roll as the soundtrack to America.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What artists would you like to work with?

EF CUTTIN: I’m blessed to have been able to work with so many artists in some capacity, whether it was spinning a party, sending beats, DJ’ing a set, or touring with them. I would like to work with Jay Electronica, Mos Def, Rick Ross, Childish Gambino, NaTee, Allie Baby – I could go on and on.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: EF Cuttin’s a legend, so with that in mind, where will we see the legend in 5-10 years?

EF CUTTIN: In 5 years, I want to be touring and killing the festival/event circuit on a worldwide scale, and in 10 I want to have started a consulting firm specializing in all things Hip Hop related. Hip Hop is now three generations strong, and we must make sure it is here for generations to come, and that comes from teaching the history so they appreciate the opportunity.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We salute you, EF Cuttin! Keep promoting the Hip Hop culture so it will be perpetuated forever.
