THIS IS MY STORY.
DJ Misterhustla (Tomi, born 1990) started his career as a mixtape DJ in 2009. The very first mixtape, titled Overseas Hustle: Chapter One, was hosted by Georgia rapper Jimmy HenneC and Chicago rapper Mr Robotic (fka Bullet). After that he linked up with his Miami label Poe Boy Music Group (home to Flo Rida, Rick Ross and others) and released Overseas Hustle vol. 2 with Poe Boy's DJ Smokey Bear, hosted by their artists Mista Mac and Billy Blue. This mixtape was widely recognized in Miami's local scene and music blogs and got Misterhustla a couple of shows in then legendary 24hourhiphop.com's internet radio. Later on he did mixtapes with Nyanda of Brick & Lace, Ace Hood, and others.
