Don Hot debuted at house parties, small soirees and eventually progressed to weddings.
At the age of 17, Don Hot’s skill, motivation and fiery personality landed him his first major gig. He played for Young Jeezy at Revolution Night Club. This was only the beginning of a long list of celebrity clientele to come. A few months later Don Hot was booked at Revolution again to mix at the after party of Sean Paul’s concert.

Don Hot was influenced by several south florida deejays such as King Waggy T, Money D(Don One), Slick Vick(Jam Pony Express), Uncle Al, and Dj Khaled. His greatest influence came from his own family.
