Rahsaan “FLY GUY” Alexander

For the better part of the last decade, Rahsaan Alexander, professionally known as DJ FLY GUY, had been a fixture behind the turntables at the most prominent nightclubs in Miami’s nightlife scene. But all of that came to a screeching halt with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March of 2020. Faced with a global health crisis, the shutdown of his industry, and brewing social unrest, Rahsaan turned his creative energies to a passion he once explored as a high school senior at Miami Killian: photography.
