AS I AM covers the late, great mash-up pioneer's entire life from seed to sorrow. His meteoric rise made him the first million-dollar DJ in the world, but alongside his artistic success was a tumultuous personal life: addiction, tabloid romances, and personal tragedy. Featuring contemporaries such as A-Trak, Mark Ronson, and Diplo, this is the tale of a man who changed the landscape of music.
