Alum Creates Hip-Hop Play List for Carnival Cruise Line

Jeffrey Hedgemon (DJ Skoot) ’08 recently curated a 50-song playlist of his favorite tracks to help Carnival Cruise Line commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop. The Mobile, AL native has served as Carnival's Pro DJ for five years. The playlist was made especially for fans of the genre getting in some final vacation travel.

“I love my job and was thrilled to curate this playlist for Carnival Cruise Line," said Hedgemon. "Our slogan is ‘Start here, go anywhere,’ and I am living proof of that on the other side of the world. I just went to Ireland and Liverpool and am touring Iceland, but I plan to be back on The Hill for Homecoming!”

DJ Skoot recently spoke with Rolling Out about the 50th Anniversary playlist.
