DJ Honcho is a native of Northern Virginia. He was raised in a family built on the ideals that music is the soundtrack of life and every moment. With family roots from Trinidad & Tobago and the DC Metropolitan area, his musical appreciation is extremely diverse.
DJ Honcho became hooked on the art of deejaying through the roots of his uncle and local DC DJ Hip-Hop legend, DJ Oso Fresh.

He was then given the name DJ Eno at 12″ Dance Records while digging; later being changed to DJ Honcho by his good friend, DJ So-N-So.
