The Hungry DJ Possey started at The Mo’Better Food Market and later Mandela Farmers Market in West Oakland. DJ’s D- Roachski (David N. Roach and Black Like Me (Yafeu Tyhimba), shared the wheels of steel at the Mo’ Better Food Farmers market to reach the greater community to come out and support African American farmers. We played all vinyl and mostly oldies but goodies to create a harmonic vibe at the market. Our selection of music consisted of songs like ” A Change is going to Come,” Sam Cooke,’Clean Up The Ghetto, By The Phiadephia All-Stars, Tobacco Road by Lou Rawls, Revolution, by Bob Marley and the Wailers, “Strange Fruit, by Billie Holiday, “As”, by Stevie Wonder and the list goes on…
The music above tells an important part of America’s history.
The HungryDJPossey atttempts to continue this legacy of music by promoting the people who utilize music to bring people together.
“We are hungry for justice and peace”
