Biography

Trumaine Barnett-Epps (born September 19, 1987), professionally known as DJ Tab, is an American hip hop DJ, record producer and entrepreneur. With nearly 15 mixtapes over the course of his music career, he has worked with notable acts including DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Bow Wow and J-Kwon. In 2015, he was nominated in the Midwest Regional Club DJ of the Year at the 4th edition of the annual Global Spin Awards. He is presently a DJ on Hot 104.1, with his own radio show called Get-N-Tune radio on Saturday nights.

Early life and career

Born on 19 September 1987 in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S, DJ Tab started DJing at the age of 11 after he was introduced to the profession while watching local DJs around Saint Louis at local skating rinks and teen nightclubs; before he went on to make a name for himself as the youngest dj in the Midwest considering at the time he was the only young dj on the Saint Louis music scene. An alumnus of the ITT Technical Institute where he received a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice, DJ Tab's big break came in his sophomore year of high school when a local female promoter booked him and J-Kwon for a high school Christmas concert. During sound check, J-Kwon's show disc malfunctioned and Tab ended up running J-Kwon sound check using the vinyl record of J-Kwon hit 2003 single "Tipsy", a song which went on to peak at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

DJ Tab and J-Kwon later made appearances on multiple television shows including BET Rap City, Showtime at the Apollo and MTV's Total Request Live amongst others. In 2015, DJ Tab launched Empire Clothing, a men's online clothing store before he went on to launch his own energy drink called Get-N-Tune in 2016.
