Def since 92’ DJ Nabs is a native of Durham N.C. who began his career in Atlanta as a mix show DJ for WVEE. After hearing Nabs’ skill on the turntables, upcoming producer Jermaine Dupri quickly teamed up DJ Nabs with the teen rap group Kris Kross.

Nabs would eventually become So So Def’s exclusive DJ backing up Da Brat, Xscape, Jermaine Dupri and Bow Wow. After years of touring, Nabs returned to Atlanta radio as a full time on air personality/mixer on Hot 97.5 (now Hot 107.9). During his three year stint at Hot, “In The Lab With DJ Nabs” became a household name in Atlanta along with his weekly party showcase “Old School Sundays” which was held at a trendy club in Midtown called Kaya (now Club Visions).

  In 1998, Nabs produced his first commercially released mixtape/album for Columbia Records entitled “In The Lab With DJ Nabs: The Live Album”. This project featured the live performances of Kurtis Blow, Big Daddy Kane and Wyclef from “Old School Sunday” and studio tracks from Jagged Edge, Jermaine Dupri and a then unknown Ludacris.

In 1999, Nabs began touring again with Kenan Thompson and Nick Cannon for Nickolodeon’s “All That Music and More Festival” and later with Mariah Carey’s “Rainbow Tour” in 2001, performing with longtime friend Da Brat. In 2002 Nabs produced the remix for Trick Daddy’s ” In The Wind” featuring Ceelo and Big Boi from Outkast.
2003 became the year that DJ Nabs returned to Hot 107.9 and ventured into television with Bryant Reid’s “B.St Live” on Turner South, a half hour performance driven dance show with Dj Nabs spinning the tunes and co hosting.
