A Story of Inspiration, Passion, and Dedication
Not many people realize this, but the goals they set in lives, are in many ways a result of the surroundings they are exposed to. Even Xclusive City’s dream to become a top DJ was influenced by his father and his uncles. Born in a Carribean household to Haitian parents who migrated from Haiti to the United States, as a Haitian-American musician, Xclusive City spent a lot of his time in the company of DJs and music artists.
