The World Famous Brucie Bee talks about Dj starchild (this was prior to his passing) :

How my DJ.ing progressed was my man Lance (Not Lightning Lance.) used to let D.J. Star Child stay at his crib. When I got with Star Child I got on to the clubs. Star Child was doing a lot of clubs and skating rinks. He told me just come hang out with him. Back then I think he was jut making $40 a night. Out of the 40 he would give me $20. I always knew how to cut but he taught me how to mix and blend records and keep it like just one flow. I first played at the East side Living Room, which was once called the 371! That spot was on 166th street between Finley and College. Star Child was rocking there and he put me on.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of DJ Starchild.
