In one conversation, you can see that DJ Montay is humble. Though he reps one of the most consistent and hard-working teams in the Dirty South, Oomp Camp Records and Southern Style DJs, Montay Humphrey has produced such hits as DJ Unk’s, “Walk It Out” and “2Step,” Baby D’s “I’m Bout Money,” Flo Rida’s “Low,” Shawty Lo’s “Foolish,” and Academy-Award winning Three 6 Mafia “I’d Rather.”
The producer got his start “buggin [legendary artist] DJ Jelly at the flea market,” proclaims Montay. “I was buggin him with my mixtapes. Then Oomp started up a record label. He wouldn’t let me in at first. But he came around. I was like, 15.” Clearly, Montay had talent. “I always loved music as a kid I was like I can do productions I can try it out I am a beat maker.”
Now, Montay finds himself treated as a veteran in the game. Did you know that Montay is also seasoned in radio? “I’ve been doing radio for like 10 years,” he proclaims. “I started with Gregg Street.” Now, you can find him on WHTA (Hot 107.9) in Atlanta.
The grind still takes a toll as Montay is still hungry for greater success. “I do my craft 24-7. I see my kids in the morning and I’m gone from sunup to sundown.” When asked about spending time working on mixtapes versus actual production, he starts to ponder the question. “There’s a lot of people doing mixtapes. I still do mine at the same time there’s more money for me in the production.”
Montay is gearing up for a very HOT 2009. “I got Flo Rida’s next single. Hopefully, I got T.I.‘s next single. Look for a track with Chamillionaire featuring The Game and Ludacris. Also, new Oomp Camp coming up! We got Baby D coming out of jail soon and he’s coming up! We’ve got a bunch of stuff coming from Oomp Camp!” BE Magazine promises to keep you updated with more on DJ Montay in the near future.
