Thank you for a thorough & informative story on the life & times of DJ Scientific. The world needs people like him and we need to hear stories about people like him. He represents the much-needed aesthetic of "Edutainment", a term coined by one of our peers & mentors, KRS One.

Thanks again for covering intelligence & maturity within Hiphop Culture. It does exist, even though it isn't covered enough in the news. You guys were ON POINT w/ this story. Peace...
