DJ NoPhrillz | Interview
From Philadelphia, PA, DJ NoPhrillz has been influenced by Yo! MTV Raps and BET’s Rap City. After hearing music from DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, NoPhrillz began perfecting his craft as a DJ. He quickly became a regular in the DJ battle community in Philly. In 2002, NoPhrillz competed in the NBA All-Star Game DJ Battle and won the Power 99 Power Dome DJ Battle. The following year he was defeated by the legendary DJ Ghetto, but the two became friends and would practice together. DJ Sparkles joined the two, and they formed a group called Def Tec. DJ NoPhrillz toured with the Olive Dance Theater and is the official DJ for Philly’s own Tangled Thoughts. NoPhrillz has shared stages with Method Man, Boot Camp Clik, M.O.P., Ja Rule, Ghostface Killah, Mobb Deep, Schoolly D, and more. He is also a popular mixtape DJ, spinning records for Freeway, Beanie Sigel, Reed Dollaz, E Ness, Jakk Frost and more.
