DJ Bio in the Portland Mercury (unedited)
Thursday, August 12th 2004

Dj Wicked has been a staple of the Portland hiphop scene for years, earning a status of one of the best and busiest DJ's around. As his website shows, he prefers the macabre side of things, but he also happens to like MILF's (Mom I'd Like To Fuck" - not the Moro Islamic Liberation Front). His new CD asks the question burning the minds of many men: Got Milf?

Mercury: So what's up with the Got Milf title?

Wicked: Back in Highschool I used to have this huge crush on my buddy's mom (which also happened to be my band teacher). So on the night of our big Christmas concert, I told her my feelings and one thing just led to another. I found myself backstage with her making our own sweet music if you know what I mean? Ever since then I've always had a fascination with Milfs, and with my new "Got Milf?" CD, it's sort of my way of giving back to them. Thank you Ms. Letourneau!

Mercury: Do you love Milf's? and why?

Wicked: Of course. You gotta lov'em? Women are like a fine wine....they only get better with age.

Mercury: What are some advantages of "having Milf?" Good for the bones maybe?

Wicked: Well, I can tell you this definitely does a body good!

Mercury: Is there ever any hot MILF action at your shows?

Wicked: There's always hot milf action at my shows! When I tell people to come check me out as I spin the "golden oldies", I'm not just talking about the music.

Mercury: Are there multiple meanings for Milf?

Wicked: Yeah, Ive heard of a couple of different meanings for "Milf". There's the Moro Islamic Liberation Front which is a terrorist group that formed in the Philippines in the late 70's to establish an independent Islamic state for the Moros. But those aren't the "Milfs" that I'm referring to on my CD, I promise you.

Mercury: Does your CD really explain what a milf is?

Wicked: Yeah, you'll know what a "Milf" is within the first 30 seconds of listening to the CD. It literally spells it out for you. Act like ya know.

Mercury: Do you think those MILF hunter websites are for real? What do you think about those?

Wicked: Man, I hope they're for real. If not, I don't know what I would do? It would be like finding out Santa Claus didn't exist all over again, or that pro wrestling was they say.

Mercury: Do you practice your technical skills a lot?

Wicked: As much as I possibly can, but never enough.

Mercury: How do you feel about the Portland hip-hop scene?

Wicked: The Portland hip-hop scene is way behind the times and I think it sort of always has been. You have a tiny handful of artists that are really making moves of any significance. The older generation has diminished for the most part, and there is an entire new slew of youngsters that are coming up. I've been there for the entire ride and I've seen a lot of people come and go. More than anything, I'm excited to see where the Portland hip-hop scene will be in say 5 years from now. Not until that point do I think we'll have caught up with everybody else in terms of status, credibility and quality.

Mercury: Do you have any thoughts on the underground vs. mainstream debate?

Wicked: Man, the debate between Underground vs. Mainstream hip-hop is one that seems will never end. All I really have to say on the issue is just "keep it true" and do what you can to preserve the culture. Oh, and FUCK Rammin' 59.5! And if I ever mysteriously turn up missing, somebody question Paul Allen.

Mercury: It seems like you're one of the busiest DJ's in Portland

Wicked: Yeah, I'm a busy guy indeed. I've paid my dues and earned my stripes. I straight bust my ass for everything I have, and I take a lot of pride in being self made. No other DJ's out here can match my hustle.
