“The reason why I’m doing this is because most of these people that got injured are people who support us, we are local djs in the community and these are people that show us support every other weekend. Like for example Misty Powell, Ayesha Ramirez, Warisi Flores I know all of them personally, I know most of the other people they are all friends and people who support me every day all of those people are people who support us every day.”
