DJ Folk has been in the music industry for 11 years now. In that time, he’s held various roles including everything from music retail, to interning at Grand Hustle and being an A&R for CTE, Jeezy’s Label. It is safe to say DJ Folk has dabbled in a little bit of everything. “I was a marketing rep intern for the Grand Hustle Mid-Atlantic Region: North/South Carolina, Maryland, DC,” he recalled. “I would go to the different stores like independent stores and Best Buy, and set up the POP’s and handout CD’s and posters at the shows, and all the promotional material like rubber bands. That was back in the Trap Muzik days when T.I. was doing “Rubberband Man,” so we would pass them out.” Constantly juggling responsibilities that also include managing talent and being an entrepreneur, DJ Folk breaks down his current and long-term goals in the music biz.
