Where are you from and how did you become a DJ?

What is the significance of your DJ name? How did you get it?
I got my DJ name by being the guy who would sell knock-off purses, mixtapes, DVDs, shoes, etc at the Swap Meet. Joey Boy from KALV would always buy mixtapes from me and starting calling me Bootleg Kev and it just stuck from there!
