The phrase hitting the big time for musicians usually is attached with a big performance or winning an award. Specifically for DJs, making it has a lot to do with who they work with. Notable examples would be Neil Armstrong with Jay-Z or a decade earlier Mix Master Mike with The Beastie Boys. But Mick Boogie has one-upped them all.
He has aligned himself with MC Hammer.
Now if you didn’t get my sarcasm I’ll apologize now, but putting together a mixtape hosted by the parchute pants wearing icon is simply genius. You got to give Mick Boogie credit for also mixing the original samples to Hammer’s hits i.e. “Superfreak” to “Can’t Touch This.” This is as definitive as it gets and thankfully without the “Pumps and a Bump” cheetah Speedo.
