"Social networking, for what I do, is such a key thing for me being a personality," said DJ Skee, "and promoting all the different things I have going on. From my radio shows [and upcoming] concerts, [to] brands I'm working with [and] mixtapes and projects I have coming out. It's your outlet to communicate with fans and hear real-time feedback on what they like."
