RSD has been at KZSC since early November 2016, first contributing to two blogs along with DJ Elbo, the 2016-2017 Hip-Hop Director. He then later became DJ Elbo's mentee of "Got Rapps?" in Winter 2017.
RSD graduated the Intro to Radio course in Winter 2017. He was the first person to interview the hottest rap group in the world, SOB X RBE on February 4, 2017, receiving recognition by HYPEBEAST, XXL, theFader, & COMPLEX, alongside receiving Volunteer of the (Winter) Quarter, logging 44 hours, the most by an Intro to Radio student (according to DJPK).
In Spring 2017, RSD became the first person to host a student-run Island Reggae show "Highway To Irie" (Saturday's 10PM-12AM), receiving assistance by DJ Mu & DJ MoKat. With that, he interviewed huge artists like Katchafire, Sammy J, Rebel Souljahz, Eli-Mac & Jordan T.

In the Winter 2018, RSD discontinued “Got Rapps” and created Vitamin D (R&B) & hosted Slug Talk to put more focus on his academics.
