DJ MONTAY

When Atlanta-based DJ and music producer Montay Humphrey, a.k.a. DJ Montay, walks into a club, it’s not uncommon for the dance floor to be packed with sweaty revelers bumping and grinding to one of his songs. As the producer behind such smashes as the T-Pain and Flo Rida collaboration “Low” and Unk’s “Walk It Out,” Montay has become royalty of sorts in his native ATL—an in-demand club and mix tape DJ as well as one of the most sought-after beat makers in town.

“It’s not about me being a celebrity,” he says, humbly. “It’s just that I grew up around here, so I know everyone. People congratulate me on what I’ve done, but I’m pretty much the same person I’ve always been.”
A huge music lover since his mom bought him his first drum machine at the age of 8, Montay has amassed 30 tattoos—most of them direct reflections that he is more music-lover-next-door than demanding superstar producer. In addition to the names of his three young children, he’s also got the names of his father, who died when he was 5, and his stepfather, who died when he was 11, plus his own initials (his first ink) and a cross on his arm. The rest of the work, much of which was done by Randy of Tattoos by Randy in Jonesboro, GA, is music-centric, including a turntable, a keyboard, and a drum machine. And then there’s the music note next to his right eye. “I got it before everybody started getting all these tattoos on their face,” Montay says, sounding annoyed. Then he breaks into a laugh. “It didn’t hurt that bad. It just felt like a little scratch.”
So what’s next? More tattoos (“After my first two, I went crazy. … They’re artwork, and they’re really addicting,” he says), as well as more songs to keep the party hot. “It feels good to see everybody dancing,” he says. “Music makes everybody feel better. It’s something that keeps a lot of people away from their stress and their problems. It cures everything in the world.”
