Behind every elite DJ coalition there is a great leader who envisions a movement much bigger than their own. Troy2davent saw the growth and success of the Slip N Slide DJ's long before he became president. This Gainesville, Fl. native first got his start in the music industry as a rapper signed with ARTIST DIRECT. He knew his potential in the industry went a lot farther then rapping, so he began his endeavors as an aspiring businessman. Most that knew him admired his grind and persistence in excellence, which is how he got his nick name "the number one hustler". His drive and vision soon caught the attention of his long time idol, Slip N Slide Records CEO, Ted Lucas. Troy2davent got his start with Slip N Slide Records doing promotions and street team work. Troy2davent states, "It does not matter how small a job is. As long as you do your job with excellence, you will succeed! I had to do everything I had to do to impress Ted Lucas". With that same attitude Troy quickly acquired an A &R position with the label. Soon thereafter, he founded Slip N Slide Radio where he was also the on air personality. This is when he allowed his admiration for dj's flourish and decided that he wanted to work alongside them.
On the radio side of things, Troy was quickly becoming Mr. Exclusive because he was doing interviews with some of today's top entertainers in the music industry. His growing relationship with these entertainers helped birth his highly controversial mixtape series, "KRIP2NITE". The "KRIP2NITE" mix tapes were quickly becoming a way that Troy could help artists get exposure in different markets. Many have been featured on these mixtapes from nationally known southern artists to chart topping artists from the east coast. With the success of Slip N Slide Radio and several other business ventures, Troy finally earned the level of respect and attention he sought out from Ted Lucas.
Mr. Lucas soon realized that Troy was the right man to lead his dj coalition. Consequently, Troy became the President of the Slip N Slide DJ's. With his leadership and visionary skills, Troy has developed the Slip N Slide DJ's from simply being the official dj's to Slip N Slide Records to a bonafide, elite and worldwide dj coalition. There are dj's in almost every country outside of the United States, as well as in every state within the U.S. Troy2davent has also developed the Slip N Slide Dj's into several different branches which include: Slip N Slide MIXTAPES, Slip N Slide RADIO, Slip N Slide DJ's MODELS, Slip N Slide DJ's PROMO, and Slip N Slide DJ's TV.
