Hello my beautiful ninjas!!! It’s Saturday again!! You know what that means…. It’s time for my A.S.S!!! This week I have a very talented dude named James, aka Ghost DTX. He hails from Dallas, Tx.

I’ll definitely show you a pic of the piece later on. You guys know the questions come first. With questions, come short intros.. because.. well… I want Ghost to tell you about himself… not me… That being said… let’s roll out these questions!!!

I am currently the Dallas Majik Ninja Ent. and Strange Music Street team lead.
