DLUX: THELIGHT I have said this many times. People have such a hard time saying my name that I would change it under normal circumstances. I know it looks simple reading however, it is another matter just hearing the name. After being introduced as deluxe da life, deluh tha lie, and other sort of abominations of the name, you would think I would just simplify and just go by "DLUX." But at last, the name is too important to me and here is why. It was kind of those moments that you see in the movies; the defining moment where the main character's life is changed and the rest is history. On a college tour as a Prospective Gent of the PGC we took a trip to Clark-Atlanta University. Keep in mind that before this trip I was looking for a Dj Name. Dj Des D, Nah! Dj Diamond Cuts, nope! Dj Contra (not the video game, short contradiction), hell no! How about Dluxcuts, maybe. Deluxe with no e's because I thought that was different and cool. I hadn't made up my mind yet and I come the motto of Morehouse college. Engraved in the ground was "Et Facta Est Lux" meaning "And There was Light." Lux=Light, dlux=d light, drop the cuts because I was more than a dj or a beat maker, and it was kind of corny. When I think of Light I think of attaining knowledge, removing ignorance, and gaining enlightenment. As a spoken word hip hop poetry artist I seek to enlighten the minds of the crowd from a spirit of truth and understanding. I use to just go by Dlux but there are many folks using the name. When people hear the name the meaning didn't seem to connect. I mean folks act like they don't know latin, go fig! I added "The Light" so the meaning would just smack you in the face. There you have it! The story of my name and why no matter how it's gets butchered in the future, I am and shall stay DLUX: THELIGHT! Unless I change mind ? Oh, side note. I added ":" recently to clearly communicate "the light" as a definition of "DLUX." 1, DLUXTHELIGHT DLUXTHELIGHT.COM and MUSIC.DLUXTHELIGHT.COM Oh Yeah, I forgot to mention one important thing, buy the album!
