Best Hip-Hop DJ

DJ Jabril

There’s a good deal of griping in hip-hop these days—much of it justified—about how mixtape DJs aren’t DJs in the classic sense. But it takes a skill set in and of itself to master the mixtape grind, and in Baltimore these days nobody does it better than DJ Jabril. With the Stash Box series and the Smash-hosted Melt Da Pyrex, Jabril has proven adept at wading through the glut of local hip-hop and picking dope tracks. And with the Block Work series, a prestigious single-artist mixtape in the mold of DJ Drama’s Gangsta Grillz tapes, Jabril has created a signature showcase for some of the city’s best MCs, from Bossman to Backland.
