Dj Stop N Go Biography
August 9th 1989 in the city of Racine , Wisconsin Martel Craft was born . As a kid he grew a love for music.
His music passion came from his father (Billy Craft) who would play a lot of old school R&B around him. On his Mother's (Jamie Bedford) side of the family he would sit by the stereo and listen to the radio (V100.7 FM) a lot.
While listening to the radio he would record his favorite songs on blank cassette tapes and listen to them on his cassette walkman .
Fast forwarding to high school (Horlick High School) he continued to grow his love for music. In 2004 his cousin Psde Gib introduced him to the world of recording himself on music.
Sunny , Rell and Tae from his neighborhood block Roosevelt Avenue , all linked up one day and recorded their first song together on Psde Gib laptop.
They recorded their first song on T.I. 's 24 Instrumental in his father's kitchen.
They really were just having fun but he took recording as an artist seriously now. Writing lyrics and recording more songs.
At this point he is now going by the rap name Fame B (Fame Brilliant). In high school already known for selling industry cds Fame B decides to give his demo to a high school friend Leroy Walker (Aka Mighty Smurf).
Mighty Smurf was already in a rap group on the northside of Racine named YMH (Young Money Hustlers).
Members of the group , YMH Tice , YMH Stunna and YMH Selfmade heard Fame B demo and decided to join him in the rap group .
YMH TY (ShoooterDown Jones) was also added in YMH around this time and they all instantly became family.
At this point this is when Fame B first recorded in a real studio environment on a microphone.
As time went on Fame B decided to pursue a different side of music.
After high school ended in 2008 he started paying more attention to Djs like Dj Drama and the way Djs were hosting mixtapes. As a hobby he began learning the ropes of mixing music and started buying Dj equipment. He also began learning how to produce beats which gave him his ear for beat matching.
Fame B is originally from Roosevelt Avenue which is on the westside of Racine but he also grew up on the northside of Racine as well.
On the northside Fame B grew a bond with artists by the name of Brooks and Streets. One day he decided to mix one of Brooks and Streets songs "Army Of 2"
"Army Of 2" is produced by legendary Racine producer D Roc.
Without letting Brooks and Streets know that he mixed the song. Fame B let them hear it.
Brooks and Streets' reaction to the song was good.
Brooks encouraged Fame B to keep going and influenced him to mix more songs.
Now the Dj venture begins.
Still known as Fame B. Brooks and his lady Ashley Wright help Fame B come up with a Dj name.
Brooks and Ashley are credited for coming up with the name Dj Stop N Go.
In 2009 Brooks was the first person to say the name "Dj Stop N Go" publicly on the record "Burn One" that was recorded at D Roc studio on the northside of Racine.
Now instead of being called Fame B. Dj Stop N Go is born.
Brooks and Dj Stop N Go put their first mixtape together titled "Northside Takeova" that was the first mixtape hosted by Dj Stop N Go. "Northside Takeova" was released only in the streets on the northside of Racine.
"Northside Takeova" also featured Berto F , Zone , and Streets.
Around this time Dj Stop N Go was also linking with an artist and engineer on the Northside of Racine by the name Zane Yung.
Zane Yung was part of a popular rap group in Racine named "BiB Gang". "BiB Gang" member SD Da Badd Mann (Aka Psde Lipe) and Dj Stop N Go were already close through SD Da Badd Mann's brother Pj Lockridge (Aka Marathon P) so the mutual bond was solid.

November 21 St 2009, SD Da Badd Mann released the mixtape "Homicide" on Datpiff.com hosted by Dj Stop N Go.

The connection with Supastar J Kwik came from Dj Stop N Go reaching out to him through Myspace.
Now with Dj Stop N Go's buzz growing more on the northside of Racine. He decided to work his name more on the southside of Racine by linking back up with SD Da Badd Mann.
