THE 810 SHOW
Tomas Tello has been involved with hip-hop for nearly 20 years. He has worked with numerous notable emcees, deejays and producers over the years live and in the studio.

Tello (or Scizzahandz), who is also a member of C.S.I., A Lab Cult and The Starving Artists Crew, considers deejaying for Legendary Emcee KRS-ONE (at The Urban League of Flint last summer and at Blondie's in Detroit) one of his most memorable experiences in Hip Hop.
