Now here is a story about a group of indigenous people in Minnesota that are trying to save their native language “Ojibwe”. Some of the young members of the community are putting their rap skills to good use by incorporating their native tongue in song.

DJ Stoney, The Living Legend

It has been with great pleasure that I've had the chance to work with DJ Stoney -- a.k.a. The Legendary DJ Stoney.

It was a moment in time that I wish I was on the dance floor because everybody was in a state of euphoria.
