Daniel Grogan, a.k.a DJ Bird, a prolific sound maker, mixologist, and stage DJ, is a turntable legend and one of the original founding members of the southern hip-hop rap sensation. The group's music has topped the Billboard 200 and received notoriety as the award-winning Top R&B/Hip-Hop Album. In addition, their songs have been featured on various movie song tracks.

DJ Bird invites his readers aboard his mystical musical life of keeping it Trill (true and real) with UGK. Bound together by brotherhood and the love for hip-hop and southern rap music. DJ Bird details intimate accounts of his life with his music associates revealing untold stories of UGKs road to becoming established as world hit-makers. Born with a bigger vision that Port Arthur, Texas could ever contain, DJ Bird and the UGK brotherhood set out to put Texas on a musical map. Gripped by personal setbacks and the tragic loss of his dearest friend and brother Pimp C (Chad L. Butler); Bird had a bound determination to overcome his personal demons of cocaine and alcohol addiction. DJ Bird still triumphs. Shoveled by the devastation of two powerful hurricanes Ike and Harvey, DJ Bird teaches his reader, how to make a powerful come back.

The devil doesn't sleep, so I want either, protect yourself, and always do the right thing.

I have stayed true to that promise even until now, in music and the DJ World. My greatest platform in this life is located behind a set of turntables and a mixing board. Because of my dedication to my craft, you can still find me in all the Texas turn-up spot. UGK 4 Life.
