    BRIEF BIO

    Dj R1 started making and playing music many years ago, 1981 to be exact, with his good friend Christopher Wong Won. You may know Chris as Fresh Kid Ice from The 2 Live Crew. Both R1 and Chris being of Caribbean descent took to each other musically and began experimenting making Rap Beats with an 808 Drum machine.

     

    R1 and Chris eventually started playing house parties. R1 would DJ and Chris would MC. They eventually graduated High School and both joined the Air Force. R1 was told he could not fly fighter planes so he quit the Air Force. Chris however went on and met the fellows who would eventually form 2 Live Crew.

     

    R1 started working with Chris in the early days of the group. He eventually left to start work at a major airline. Being recently divorced R1 rejoined Chris and the group in 2016 and started touring again. R1 eventually became Chris' personal manager and co-managed Chinaman Records which produced Chris' final album, Breaking Glass Ceilings. After Chris' death in 2017, R1 started DJing at a local radio station which then led him to DJing at Power Plug Radio as one of the 4 Horsemen DJs. You can listen to R1 sets every weekday from 3:40 pm - 5:00 pm, Fridays from 5:00 pm - 8 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm.
