DMC DJ Online Battle Round 10

Guess who decided to submit a Round 10 submission to DMC DJ Online?  It’s the Bay Area’s 89 Skratch Gangstaz DJ Snayk Eyez.  This guy was big in the battle scene in the 1990’s and early 2000’s.  A remarkable turntablist with 2 tracks featured on Return of the DJ volumes 4 and 5 and has a short cameo in the documentary Scratch, by Doug Pray.  Let’s see if he can win this round.

Also, I didn’t know Homer Simpson submitted a video to battle for Round 10 as well?:

This is DJ Fong Fong.  Found out about this dude by checking out his numerous tablist videos on youtube.  You can check him out here:  http://www.youtube.com/user/djsynaps
