It’s also been shamefully slept-on, if you let Tray Pizzy tell it.

About the Curator - Doran Nelson
Doran Nelson Hailing from the Bronx, New York, upon hearing his first rap record, it was love at first listen. At a time when hip hop was still young, fresh and new he began DJing. Initially Inf began blending his father’s soul records with hip hop instrumentals purchased from the local record stores that his pocket change had become so familiar with. Now, amongst a neighbourhood following and growing demand, his freestyle mixes suddenly became valued. Spinning heads as well as records, before he knew it, Inf found himself hosting block parties, school dances, talent shows and as he proclaims “wherever there were people and music…so was I.”
Naturally,Doran's appreciation for authentic HipHop music has him in the mix of a lot of tastemakers depending on his distinctive taste for up & coming artist. Today doran is a dj over at www.dtfradio with partner and friend named Doggie Diamonds Tv which airs live every Wednesday night 7-9pm via tunein app under DTF RADIO.
