June 6, 2019 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. This is a site called Fiverr. They've got a lot of things going on, but if you notice in the search box, I have DJ drops and that is because I can go on this site and get all these different people, men, women, accents, no accents to do drops for me. So I've got a gig coming up in the next two weeks and I need to get a couple DJ drops done.
