DJ First Class
Born and raised in Chicago, IL, Jabari "DJ First Class" Carter has always had high aspirations of being musically inclined as a child. Growing up around hip hop and R&B music, First Class wanted to pursue his career as an artist. By the time he got to college, Jabari taught himself how to DJ as a freshmen at Western Illinois University. At that point he made strides to become the campus DJ for all events that the university hosted as well as fraternity and sorority parties. By the time his sophomore year came around, he saw a bright future for himself and his craft and decided to take DJ'ng to a further level. It was at this point when he and his longtime friend Jonathan Stewart became a unit and made moves to become the next best duo after DJ Drama & Lil Wayne.
It was early 2017 when Jabari discovered a hidden talent in hip hop journalism. This talent lead him to becoming a staff writer for RESPECT Magazine & Bluntiq.
