So Many Shrimp Radio Ep. 4 — DJ Oreo


DJ Oreo comes from Chicago’s West Side. A former Jesse White Tumbler, he first began DJing at the infamous War Zone dance battles as a teenager. After hearing him spin between sets at a King Louie concert, Chance the Rapper picked Oreo up as his official DJ; David first met Oreo when covering Chance for Complex as the rapper opened for Mac Miller, touring the midwest in an RV. Chance, of course, would go on to touch bigger stages, and Oreo followed as they performed around the world. Since that time, Oreo founded Oreofest, a huge hip-hop party in Chicago, and became Lil Yachty’s DJ on his recent tour with Rae Sremmurd. (Read more on him in this great profile by friend of the show Leor Galil.)

Sunday, January 15 he came through David’s place and spoke with David and Charne about his experiences coming up in the footwork scene. A killer storyteller, he discussed how much being the Jesse White Tumblers helps footworking (not at all), his philosophy behind Oreofest, his plans for an album in 2017, and the first time he met Jay Z.

Thanks again to Nick the Roommate for recording & engineering this project, and Tamika from Swim Team for co-producing.
