To say that A-Trak has been around the world (and I, I, I) would be an understatement. The first DJ to win all three major DJ competition titles (DMC, ITF and Vestax), he famously is the youngest person to ever win the DMC World DJ Championship, he was Kanye West’s tour DJ, co-founded Fool’s Gold Records with his brother and Nick Catchdubs, and is currently a resident DJ at the Wynn in Las Vegas.
Because of his life, there’s no shortage of interesting – and at times hilarious – stories, some of which he shares with Eric and Jeff Rosenthal on their podcast “A Waste Of Time.” During their time together, the three talk on everything from the Kanye days, how one Rosenthal had to buy some of Consequence’s albums on the spot in order to meet the G.O.O.D. Music crew, his times with the likes of Juicy J, Peeway Longway, Q-Tip and others, the whereabouts of the oft-delayed Federal Reserve project with Cam’ron, and more.
Below, A-Trak tells a funny Cam’ron and Dame Dash story, because Cam’ron and Dame Dash.
