DJ Tay Bottlez: far as I mean just getting into music in me I feel like at this point, I still not realizing like you know, DJ could be a potential calling, but like said i'm starting to gravitate more to music and less from sports my view I ended up tearing my acl I ended up.


00:05:15.240 --> 00:05:25.020

DJ Tay Bottlez: Also, breaking my ankle playing basketball so that's what kind of made me, you know the gravitate from sports because getting injured had two surgeries and rehabilitation.
