RADIO ONE/ATLANTA has hired DJ NABS for PM drive at Classic Hip-Hop BOOM 102.9, reports AJC.COM. Although the station doesn't have any immediate plans to add more live jocks, everything will be contingent on how much revenue the station is able to pull in.
DJ NABS said, "BOOM is everything that I've experienced musically regarding hip-hop. I bought the SUGARHILL GANG record in 1979. I was 10. I grew up listening to hip-hop in the 1980's. The 1990's was my professional introduction."
NABS worked with KRISS KROSS back in its heyday in the early 1990's. He became SO SO DEF's exclusive DJ backing up DA BRAT, XSCAPE, JERMAINE DUPRI, and BOW WOW. He also toured with MARIAH CAREY, LUDACRISS, CIARA, and MICHAEL JACKSON.
OM HURRICANE DAVE said, "When we first started having conversations about a Classic Hip-Hop format in ATLANTA, there was only one name that kept sticking in my mind, DJ NABS. He lives and breathes the format. He was the second personality to do afternoon drive when the original HOT 97.5 now called HOT 107.9 was launched. So a lot of music he'll be playing on BOOM 102.9 is the music he was playing on HOT back in the day."
