Before Wale hit the stage last night at the Bowery Ballroom, DJ Clark Kent warmed up the crowd with some classic material. Based on the reaction, it’s hard to tell if Brooklyn was truly in the house.

A week after my appearance on The Combat Jack Show, DJ Clark Kent was this week’s guest. The interview is over two hours long, but here’s a synopsis of their conversation. Dive in.
This man’s history can’t fit in one episode. Pause. Clark talks about how he started dj’ing at 9 years old as he witnessed first hand the birth of Hip Hop, why he felt Jay-Z was a better mc than B.I.G., why he didn’t sign NaS and more. We didn’t even get to the sneakers.
You can probably ask me where the weed is at, and I’ll tell ya. But Maino’s got 5 on it. Here DJ Clark Kent gets Mr. Hustle Hard to hop on the classic Luniz tune. Dum-dum-dum-dum.
DJ Clark Kent and The Remedy stopped by Grind Music Radio last week and talked to Sean C & LV about how much equipment was needed to craft beats back in the day. Superman also mentions that Jay Elect’s “Exhibit C” inspired him to get back into full production mode and then he speaks on Rick Ross’ “Super High”.
Ross hopped on the Def Jam conference call this afternoon and spoke on the reception of his new single “Super High”. During the call, DJ Clark Kent phoned in and discussed how the song came to fruition. Later on, Ross says he named his new album, Teflon Don after his former stage name and confirmed that Jay-Z will be featured on the disc.
This past Friday, Clark Kent stepped behind the 1′s and 2′s at 595 North nightclub in ATL. Hey DJs, take a minute and watch Kent transform into Superman. Just don’t ask for no damn requests! Ha!
