In 2010, STUBBS has managed to become entrenched in the fabric of the music industry as he was presented with amazing potential prospects. Also expanding his technological reach, STUBBS is among a select few already ahead of the curve for the new technology of video deejaying, which has presented him with unique opportunities. Since DJ Cheapshot became on-tour DJ with New Kids on the Block, STUBBS was presented with the opportunity to become the official tour video deejay of the GET BUSY COMMITTEE featuring RYU, APATHY, and SCOOP DEVILLE. STUBBS also played for the SUNSET STRIP MUSIC FESTIVAL in August of 2010 on the World Renowned Sunset Strip along side acts including the SMASHING PUMPKINS, COMMON, SLASH, KID CUDI, and FERGIE in the City of West Hollywood at the legendary Roxy Theatre.
DJ CHEAPSHOT of SKAM ARTIST took STUBBS under his wing and became a mentor to him in early 2011. Aside from teaching him more about the craft of DJing itself, CHEAPSHOT has also shown STUBBS the importance of his business practices and philosophies.
FIRE POO was created by CHEAPSHOT, VICE and ERIC DLUX as a place for DJs gather and enjoy each other’s company in a non-club atmosphere. It is something that the DJ Community has needed for a long time. FIRE POO has grown to become a nation-wide phenomenon. Established DJs in the industry such as Grand Master Flash, Z-trip and Revolution have attended the event. During its incredible growth, CHEAPSHOT made STUBBS a partner of the movement. This has given STUBBS a better understanding of the industry and brought him closer to his peers in the DJ industry. CHEAPSHOT has also been a mentor to STUBBS as a music producer.
