“I got hooked up by going to places connecting with Funk Flex at clubs,  then met up with DJ ENUFF and spoke about my career,” Cranberry explains to BW how he came to spin on Hot 97. “Next thing I know they gave me a big shout out on the radio, saying I’m the youngest DJ in charge. I used to go to Hot 97, standing outside connecting with the other DJs, trying to get a name for myself & I spun at couple clubs and the rest is history.”

DJ Cranberry had already started making a name for himself in Mount Vernon and throughout Westchester County and the Bronx as part of HotSkull Entertainment. HotSkull Ent was more than just a crew of DJ’s, it became a self-contained movement that started in Mount Vernon, New York by 4 young men DJ Myte, DJ Brimzy, DJ Cranberry, and DJ Nando. Since Hotskull Ent. was founded in 2012, the company has now expanded to a full entertainment company, supplying DJ’s, event host, photographers, videographers and sound technicians.
