The talented DJ is adamant about reaching the top of his game, and he isn’t showing any signs of slowing down real soon. In fact, throughout his entire career, he has amassed experiences and milestones that only a few have managed to attain.
DJ Hypemanricky became a well-known artist once he started hosting parties at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Eventually, he upped his game and hosted many events all across the city of Paterson. From his humble beginnings as a DJ touring around with a Desktop computer, since the more advanced technology wasn’t out yet, to his first ever massive gig, DJ Hypemanricky has never let down a crowd, bringing out the thunder wherever he goes.

“I feel nobody can out hype me when it comes to moving a crowd in a stadium or club. I’m a one-man band. That’s it,” he passionately explained.
When asked what motivated him to build his own brand, DJ Hypemanricky replied, “The people, The love, The energy. And when people overlook my talents and book other DJs because they believe that I can’t rock like the rest of the DJs in the market. So when I get on the set, I prove them wrong. Either it is a party or on the radio. I know I am one of the best in the game, and I know I will be there one day.”
Five years from now, DJ Hypemanricky sees himself on Hot 97’ or 105.1FM or maybe even 107.5FM. His short-term goal is to get on one of those stations one day while also moving forward in his rapidly emerging career and online radio brand. “I feel a lot more people are going to start paying more attention to internet radio, and that will be our station BoominLive Radio,” shared Ricky.
