Kazi 88.7 Austin Texas Deejay Slyce


Are you originally from Austin Texas

No, I was born in Lubbock TX and raised all over the country because my father was in the Air Force

Coming up as a youth was your childhood

My childhood was fast really can’t remember too much because we moved from state to state often. there were times in my childhood where I spent a lot of times in daycare on Air Force bases


When did you start recognizing you have a talent with music
Right around the 10th grade in high school I was playing football at San Bernardino high school and my teammates word DJs and MCS this was the time frame when rap was first introduced into my life up until then I had been listening to funk R&B light rock and classical music

Were you brought up in the church environment

No we never really went to church except if we were at our grandmother’s house for the summer

How did you come up with the name Deejay Slyce


At first, I wanted to be a rapper and my stage name was blast Master kid slice

This was a name that I had made-up once I had started trying to make rap songs

Then it got shortened to just kid slice by this time I was a working DJ. all this was in a time frame of 1985 through 1989. Most people who are close to me just call me SLYCE DJ is a title.

Did  you attend any college

Yes, I attended 2 semesters of Community College. I attended McClellan community college in Waco TX. I was also married at the time with two kids. A full-time job at Black Eyed pea and deejaying on the weekend at a popular nightclub and put it in studio work producing some songs.

When did you start getting into radio broadcasting.

That was may of 2014on Waco’s first black radio station 1049 the beat. I got a chance to come in and board operation for the Russ Parr morning show. Eventually it led to mixing on air and then having my own air shift.

Hiw did you end up becoming a part of the KAZI organization

A good friend of mine was getting an interviewing on a show on KAZI and asked me to come. The host of the show asked me to come and guest DJ the night I did the general manager at the time Steve savage ask me to join KAZI. I’ve been there ever since that was in 2017.


So  you were there around the time my friend DJ teddy and Steve savage were there

Definitely I attribute my smooth transition into the Austin community to Steve savage for allowing me to get in places and do what I do and then my boy teddy bear me and him we have a strong friendship. Definitely have to thank those two for taking me under the wing and showing me Austin TX

They call you the voice and soul of Austin TX how do you get that title or was it already created before you started working at KAZI


The voice and soul of Austin has always referred to KAZI 88.7 FM. The radio station as a whole. I’m never thought that I would be or could be the voice and soul of Austin since I’m not from Austin.

Do you have your own radio show during the day on KAZI.

Yes , it’s called the revamp it airs 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM central Standard Time Monday through Friday except if there’s a holiday that falls on the weekday or we broadcast City Council. You could check it out by logging into KAZIFM.ORG just click the listen live tab or download the TuneIn radio app to a smart device and search KAZI Austin and you can listen that way as well.


Is KAZI 88.7 FM the only station in Austin TX that plays a mixture of different genres of music including hip hop and R&B or is there another competitor in Austin TX.

We are the only one that’s what makes this so special and we are black-owned. Question how is the broadcasting life treating you.

It is treating me OK so far it is allowing me to connect where I need to be connected and plus there are some perks you know like free stuff; I love free stuff especially when it comes to food.

I understand recently that KAZI 88.7 FM went through some staff changes earlier this year and a lot of the old staff aren’t there anymore can you touch on that situation.

Sorry my friend I can’t answer that question I don’t have the authority to.

If there was something you could change when it comes to these crazy radio broadcasting politics what would it be and why would you change it.


One thing I would change would be the ability to obtain and FM or AM frequency 2 minorities.

And all black-owned radio station is a powerful thing for a black community.

What would you say was your crazy experience since you’ve been in broadcasting.

I would have to say almost getting trampled by grown women trying to get to Bow Wow at a meet and greet in Waco TX craziest thing ever grown women man grown women.

You also do live remotes have you done any wild tailgating at any Texas Longhorn games.?
Not not yet keyword yet.

Who is your college football team you’re going with.

Oh I roll with the Ohio State Buckeyes.

What about NBA and NFL.

For the NBA i rock with spurs and for the NFL I roll with Cleveland browns, Dawgpound for life.

I know the ladies when they read this are going to want to know what’s your relationship status.

My relationship status is single. Been married been divorced.

What advice would you have for any artists wanting to submit their music to a radio station for airplay.

First build a relationship with the jocks then make sure your music is clean radio edited and be humble and persistent.

Is it hard for artists to get their music into a radio station playlist rotation.

Yes, it is for commercial radio station. For community radio stations it’s all about who you know at the station and the relationship with commercial radio stations they’re pretty much ran by the record companies and the program directors. community radio stations I ran by volunteers if you know the volunteer or the DJ that’s playing then you have a real shot.


A lot of rappers are dying in the music industry either by drugs or overdose or they get murdered what is your opinion or thoughts on the situation.

Ooverdosing on drugs is just an individual’s responsibility you have the choice whether you want to take the drug or not it’s glamorized and TV social media and, in the music, but the deaths are very real and the pain Is real. The violence is just mind blowing it’s almost saying if rappers of this generation are being mind controlled to do these extreme things when rap music first came out it wasn’t about killing it was about coming together. flirted with the promises of making a lot of money you have this culture now.

Do you think payola still exists in the music industry.

Yes, no doubt I think it was there from the beginning and I think it’s going to be there to the end.


What genre of music do you listen to in your downtime.

Honestly , I try not to listen to music when I have downtime. unless I’m listening to a song somebody sent me to play on the air.

What other skills do you have.

Well a very talented at a lot of things one being music DJ producing editing and since I’m a marine shooting anything radio first entertaining management and also counseling.


Have you ever thought about creating your own podcast.


Yes, I have thought about it but I came to the conclusion that I just don’t have the amount of time that I would need to properly do that.

What would you say is the hardest part about your job.

I would have to say dealing with people who don’t know radio.

Do you also do radio interviews and if so, who was your best interview.


Yes , I do radio interviews the best one so far has been the godfather of rap Kurtis Blow. Question what was your craziest caller who called in to request a song or anything else to you.

I would have to say it was lonely lady that just wanted to hear my voice and she called me every morning just to talk and say hi.

When you’re not on the air jamming out what are you doing in your spare time. Any hobbies.

Oh that’s easy in my spare time I’m either on Madden since we all have NCAA college football no more it’s coming back but we don’t have it just yet or I’m watching horror films. And when I find the time, I like the bowl. every now and then I’ll hop in the studio make a couple of beats.

What are your thoughts on the black communities in Austin TX.
Oh that’s a simple one, we need to support each other.


What changes do you feel should be made to better our black communities not just in Austin Texas but around the country.

Well the first thing that needs to happen is we need to start being self-sufficient that means the money we spend doesn’t even go anywhere else but in our own communities for as long as possible we don’t have anybody that has money that’s black investing in the community as far as land wise food wise transportation wise school wise and financial banks, and hospitals. Plus, I’ve seen in a lot of cities if you’re not in a certain circle you won’t have access.

Are you apart of any organization in your community.
Yes , I’m part of the Texas broadcaster’s association.


Now that South by Southwest is back what’s that looking like for Kazi, do y’all still participate and interview musicians?

Absolutely the whole goal is to spotlight and showcase up and coming artists during South by Southwest.

With all the growth in Austin TX, what’s the future looking like for Kazi 88.7 FM.

It looks like it’s going to be a positive growth for the radio station. There are things that are in place that I’m looking very positive in my opinion.

What’s the future looking like for DEEJAY SLYCE with KAZI.

Well I can say this doesn’t look like I’m going anywhere for a hot minute. But things change I’ll just have to be ready for it.

What advice would you get to anyone wanting to get into radio broadcasting.


Be persistent, learn to think fast, and know how to talk. Be humble, and try to be as entertaining as you can.

If there was one thing you could go back and change about your life or a decision you made in your life what would it be and why.

Honestly , I wouldn’t go back and change anything all my experiences have led me to where I am today.

Is there anything you want to mention to the peeps that we didn’t touch on.

I do want to say this though, I feel like artist should understand DJs are needed for your exposure. And they should have at least one strong relationship with a DJ.

YUNGSTAR AKA YUNGMAN ABD TRAPSTAR MIGO FREESTYLE/INTERVIEW

Mike D Screwed Up Click breaks his silence

 

Trae Tha Truth Speaks

Mystikal Co Defendent Lil Hood Speaks

Trapstar Migo From Huntsville Texas

Supastars Magazine got to find another hidden talent through Yungstar from the SUC aka Yungman. Won’t you tell the people who you are and where you from?

What’s up World… I appreciate the time you are taking to read this… My name is Trapstar Migo, and I’m from a small town outside of Houston called  Huntsville TX. I’m sure you’ve seen the big White statue on the side of interstate 45 on the way to Dallas, yup that’s my City. The Home Team, V’s up for the Ville!

When were you first introduced to music?

Well being from 2 immigrated parents from Mexico,  I didn’t have the normal story like everybody else, u know, hearing how they grew up with their parents playing music in the house…. I first heard rap music from my neighbor Cameron Lemon(maybe rest in peace). He had a cassette of BoneThugs n Harmony. And I heard it and was in love with hiphop. The beat. The Rhymes. The whole vibe. I traded him a fishing lure for the tape. Lol.  Idk why that’s what he wanted for the tape but we were little kids so it happened lol  .


How did you come up with the name 936 trap star migo?

The name was actually given to me in Arkansas. Shout out to my patnas in Little Rock. I met my boy Snizz through Pooh and the rest was history. The name speaks for its self so if u know u know… and the 936 part comes from my home town. Ima 936 baby.

Not only do you rap but you also produce and engineer your own music as well?

Yes. I finally realized I had a certain way I heard things that other engineers didn’t do for me so I leanered to do it my self. I engineer. Mix. Shoot videos. Do graphic design. Besides rapping I do everything else as well.

How did you learn all these talents you have doing music if you don’t mind me asking?

Like I said, nobody was doing what I needed or doing it for me… amd paying for studio time gets expensive so I jumped on youtube and taught my self step by step. All off Youtube.

How did you and Yungstar aka Yungman end up working together?

I met Yung way back in the day through my brother Jro. I would always drive to Houston and pull up on him. My circle has always been small, so I didn’t have many friends in Houston so we began rocking more and like I always say, if you fwm then u stuck with me. That’s Big Bro frfr. Most of my knowledge about the real life comes from him. He has always been 1000 with me  showed me many things I’ll pass down to my son one day and I’m thankful for him. It’s deeper than rap…. we just so happen to rap. We Family first.

She’s the baddest was that track produced you and written by you?

I didn’t produce that track but youcan say I wrote it but I actually don’t write raps. I freestyle and record  punching in my songs… i come up with the verse or song as I go… nothing is premeditated.  I do what the beat makes me feel I should say.


The Free SPM track also displayed your versatility when it comes to writing your music was that taught to you by someone or was it something that’s comes to you naturally?

Like I said it was all freestyle recording. Self taught. I can freestyle for hours. Lol no cap. I study rap so if there is a certain sound or rhyme scheme I want to mimick, it comes natural.

Your Blu Lobster Str8 Flowin vol 1 was also another mixtape you dropped that has some bangers on it which track on there would say goes the hardest to you and why?

I actually did that whole little tape in 2 nights. No hooks,  just recording mean ass verses with no topics about how I was feeling at the time. Kind of like a mental exercise. But I really like My Ankles because the last bar says, “they didn’t see my vision they low angles,  and now I’m so far in the sky if they shot up at this guy, I swear they wouldn’t even hit my ankles” Lol. And I like the one called “shroomflo”. Go check them out.

Off you Late Check In Cd there’s a song called Shyt Talker was that directed at someone?because if not you have a good way of painting a story so if someone listens to it it will make them wonder if you are or not?

My boy Pop Goffney came up with that hook one day at the Blu Lobster…. we really were talking to everybody but not in a beefing type of way, more of just describing who we are type of way. that’s what we are. Big shit talkers because we back it up and we would talk shit to anybody we feel needs to hear it.  Him , her, or them, 🎶 “and ready for whatever so what they wanna do” -POP 🎶

The song with Aintchuu Kane is another song that you snapped on was that song written or a freestyle?

Once again everything I do is freestyle. But let me take this time to highlight and put some light on AintChuuKane The Franchise. One of the hardest out right now and I’m proud of how far he has came. Also Fatt Macc the Alpha is the coldest and has versatile singing n rapping style that is uncomparable to. Be on the look out for them.  STP 4-Life


With all these mixtapes that you got circulating on net and streets which one would you say is best work so far?

My best work is still sitting on my hard drive as of now and I really feel like my best work is yet to come.  The music I released were just quick songs I put out just to widen my catalog.  I just wanted more things to pop up if you ever searched my name.

With so many over night rappers being born everyday it seems so what are you gonna bring different to the rapgame?

I’m bringing the art of real rap back. Story telling. Speaking about My real situations and feelings. They haven’t seen what I seen or been through what I’ve been through, And defiantly don’t think like me. I let people see how things how I see them or from My point of view. If u listen u hear how my mind thinks.

Are you gonna stay independent or are you looking for lable deal?

 I would like to stay independent but get some kind of Major Distribution Deal. But honestly we never know what the future holds. This is God’s plan for me so we shall see which direction he wants me to go whenever that time comes… I’m on God’s time so I really don’t know.  I wouldn’t mind signing but they have to get my whole team. Ima package deal.

Is it hard to get noticed in the music scene in Houston Texas since it’s a lot of competition out there?

It’s not hard to get noticed. It’s hard to get support.  People will notice you but getting them to listen or become a fan is a little harder. You have to make music “they” like instead of music you like. It’s about grasping the listener by doing music they want to hear everyday.

What would you say is the main reason what keeps you from getting in the music industry to the level where you will be with these major hip hop artists ?

A commercial or radio song. Without a radio song, it’s hard to be main stream.

Do you see yourself being compared to SPM because of the way you sound on the mic when you start spitting on a track?

I would say I’m more compared to spm because every since I moved to Houston I been on the south side. Everyday I’m  in the  Southpark area.  In HERSCHELWOOD. Dead-end. Sunnyside. It’s always funny when people hear me rap and say, you the new south park Mexican.  I’m not the New SPM, it’s only 1 of him. I’m just a Mexican in Southpark holding down the section.

Who would you say lyrically is the hardest essay on the mic in the United States?

I’m going to say me.  I’m the Hardest Essay in the World. But I don’t put my self in that category.  I’m the Hardest Artist Period. No race or color. I’m not just “hard for a Mexican” like they say, I’m hard period. The hardest. But it’s not about saying u the best, its about competing against the best and showing them you are better. It’s all friendly completion just like a 1 on 1 basketball game. You don’t go hoop with your friends planning to lose or tie, u wanna win. That’s how I think about rap. I always wanna win.  Some people take that statement and think I’m saying im better than everybody but I say that to push them to go harder. If somebody does anything better than me, I don’t concern my self with their win, I think about my loss and it makes me want to be better. That’s how everybody should think.

Since you been producing  who all have you worked with?

There is too many to name. Most of your known names in Houston. Because of Yung I’ve worked with alot of the SUC and alot of big upand coming rappers. AL Crocka is my favorite artist working with tho…. his style and way of recording taught me alot . And he always pushes me to rap harder. Because I know If I come weak he will smoke me on da track lol. And i try to not let that happen.  Lol. But to name a few, Yungstar SUC, Wood SUC, Knock n Duke of the Herschelwood Hard Headz, Bellion Boss, Mexican OT, AL-CROCKA,  Manny,  Ashton Kush,  Propain,  Yung Redd, Scooyunda and Niq of the Gritboys, Will Lean SUC, Ronnie Spencer… and a many more.

What advice would you have anyone wanting to get into the music industry?

Don’t depend on anybody. Do as much for your self as you can.  It’s only going to go as far as you push to take it.  In the words of the late great Fat Pat, you gotta put it down if you really wanna crawl down, it’s not going to fall at your front door.

Are you working on anything else new right now?

Yes I have several projects finished I’m about to drop and I have a couple of major projects I’m working on… I will always be working on new material.

Will you be working with any artists on any new music?

 AintChuuKane,  Fatt Macc and I have a STP project coming, AL Crocka and i have a mixtape finished about to drop. Me and Yungstar have a project finished. Knock n Duke amd I have a 8152 album coming, Bellion Boss and I are working on a project. I’m working working.

Can we expect any work with you and Yungstar aka Yungman in the future?

We have about 20 songs right now ready to go but it’s up to him to give the green light to drop them so hopefully yall get that soon. Don’t think because he hasn’t been releasing music he lost it,  He hasn’t lost it, and I think he  is rapping way better now than he did then. Plus he has a story to tell so it’s going to be a classic project.

If someone wants to get in touch with you to network for booking or studio work how can they contact you?

My Instagram is –   936trapstarmigo  my email is –  officialbooking936@gmail.com , I check them everyday so my response time is quick.  I also do tattoos at a professional level so you can reach me there if u need any work. But note that I’m not cheap. I do quality over quantity. Cheap tattoos ain’t good, and good tattoos ain’t cheap.  You get what you pay for. Lol

Is there anything you wanna add just in case we did not mention to your fans in this interview?

This is God’s plan, and I am a firm believer that putting him first I will accomplish all of my goals.  I found myself and I love who I’m becoming. I’m turning into who I’m suppose to be.  I’m in my own lane and right now I’m tunnel vision with my career and I don’t see anything outside of that. I’m not not average, I’m not normal, I am the Trapstar Migo. And BTW: Shout Out to my Barber Bam , @barbershoppapi … get at him for the Ice Water Fades!

Any last words or shout outs?
