Cipha Sounds is a wearer of many hats. He hosts a music podcast called Juan Epstein, he's a comedian, and he's a former host of the legendary HOT 97 radio station. But before that, Cipha Sounds was a road DJ for the likes of Lil' Kim, Jay-Z and Dave Chappelle. Being on tour with performers can get rowdy, but his favourite road story isn't about what happened behind-the-scenes — it's what happened on stage. This is Cipha Sounds' edition of the q Road Story.
