About crate Kings

Digging deep since 2006

Crate Kings is the creative home of DJ Semantik. Originally founded to meet the then under served needs of hip-hop producers and DJs, Crate Kings grew to reach over 400,000 visitors each month. Over the years we’ve featured countless interviews, videos, studio galleries, contests, beat battles, and news.

Through this time Crate Kings cemented its reputation as a consistent voice in hip-hop music production, beat making, and DJing. We have been dedicated to the thriving community of hip-hop music producers, DJ’s, and vinyl enthusiasts. For many years the website served as a trusted source for clear, timely, and insightful information.

Today Crate Kings is the primary space for my thoughts, ideas, and experiments in hip-hop music. I hope you enjoy.
