Born in Washington D.C.  but soon moves to Maryland, where he grows up with the music of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, A Tribe Called Quest, EPMD,Pharell, Mary J Blige and a whole host of other artist  . Curating music for the most culturally definitive figures of our time began long ago for DJ RTP. His love of music and appreciation of sounds both classic and cutting-edge date back at a young age when he discovered pivotal hip hop records and artist from the 80's and 90's '. He visited record stores, bought equipment to make beats  every weekend and studied the back of each vinyl sleeve he came across, learning who wrote and produced his favorite songs. DJRTP started as a producer first working with local artist then reality TV and film production.  Today, DJRTP continues to DJ local clubs, prom's, weddings and events.
