GreenLight was born in Macomb, Michigan to a sergeant general. He found his life bounce from state to state. His father passed at the young age of 7 and his Mother at 17. Lamar turned to music for his outlet, involving himself with everything from choir to band. While in middle school Lamar went with his cousin, a DJ at the time by the name of “DJ Chinchilla”, after the performance Lamar became fascinated with this new art of rocking a crowd. He then began to further his knowledge and experience by following his cousin, collecting and preparing for his chance. The chance came in 9th grade for a younger peer’s birthday party. “I only had two portable cd players, a six channel radio shack mixer and two small house speakers” -says Lamar, who’s stage name was “DJ Drummatistic”. “Everyone always asks what and how did I come with my name, it was a marching band song that I took a liking to” From there Drummatistic (Lamar) went from house parties to weddings, to doing all of his school dances, including homecoming and prom.
After Graduating from West Feliciana High School, Lamar moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to further his education and passion. Shortly after, he linked up with a corporate DJ company. Here is where he learned the business side of the industry as well as being trained for every occasion. Soon Drummatistic became one of the most requested disc jockeys in the company, setting him apart by becoming a skilled mixologist. At the beginning of 2012 Lamar was now going by a different stage name, (DJ GreenLight) “It was easier to pronounce”-Lamar.
