Victor Blackful, best known as the dynamic On-Air personality, “The Dizz,” owes all his success to his early passion for being a House Music DJ at an early age. Throughout high school, he frequented parties featuring DJs such as Frankie Knuckles, Ron Hardy, Lil’ Louis, and many others. He finally had a chance to break onto the scene at age 20 as the Friday and Saturday resident DJ at The Ultimate. It was that career move that launched his radio debut on WJPC as an On-Air Personality and Mix DJ in 1993.
