Bmore Original

Genre: Rap/Hip-Hop
Hometown: Baltimore, MD

Originally gaining notoriety as "DJ Excel," Bmore Original rebranded himself in 2014 after having operated a label under that name since 2004. This move separated him from a glut of other DJs using "Excel" but also more accurately represented what Bmore Original was all about: both a proud DJ from the 410 of Baltimore, and a true original among his peers. He's a member of the Bum Squad DJz Worldwide Family and has been featured in numerous magazines, blogs, fanzines, and more.

As Bmore Original, his first release was the 8th in Baltimore Club Music's history, helping define the Baltimore Club OG sound. Bmore Original has grown into a brand that specializes in Baltimore Club Music and doubles as a digital distribution group and clothing line (you may have seen "Bmore Original" shirts in a handful of videos on MTV). As if that wasn't enough, Bmore Original Radio gained worldwide fame as a platform for presenting Baltimore-area DJs on its custom mix shows.

Bmore Original, the man, has been at his game since his 1995 release, This DJ/Kaptain Jack. His track "That's What A Pimp Does" blew up, featured on Howard Stern, Huffington Post, MSNBC, and others, with its notorious flipping of Pastor Manning's Obama rant into a song that went viral. The track earned "Song of the Year" honors in the Baltimore City Paper. Additionally, Bmore Original's fame grew with his remixes of Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow," Ludacris' "How Low," and Usher's "DJ Got Us."
