Best Hip-Hop DJ - 2012
DJ Sir Thurl
Sir Thurl is more than a man with an ear for what's going to keep the floor moving — though as his nickname "The Official Party Starter" attests, he is that too. He's the CEO of Allstar DJ Service, managing several of his cohorts for gigs at parties and events. He's half of the Lou Gotti Boyz hosting the critical 7 to 10 p.m. show on Hot 104.1 FM, and he hosts the STL Playlist Mix on Sundays at 9 p.m. Sir Thurl has also been entrusted by no less a local legend than Murphy Lee to play the role of his official DJ, hosting the man's mixtapes and joining him as he tours around the country.
