Buzz is growing around DJ C Squared. Could it be his uber famous parents? (He’s Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman‘s son) Or could it be the $10K checks he’s been getting to spin at high profile events (including, most recently a New Year’s Eve party hosted by Mario Lopez.) Whatever the case, 16-year-old Connor Cruise is making a name for himself outside of the shadow of his famous family name.

And if you’re wondering if the hype is warranted… it definitely is. The kid’s got talent. But don’t take my word for it: check out his most recent mix here:

While there were internet rumors that Connor may have signed a deal with Lil’ Wayne‘s Young Money crew, neither side has confirmed the story. For now, you can follow him on Twitter to keep up with his latest moves.
