1. Places That Don’t DJ But Have DJ Names: DJ Nails.

    DJ Screw (RIP) was one of rap’s great sonic innovators. However, DJ Nails, still languishes in relative obscurity. Maybe it’s because Nails – whose name sounds like MC Hammer’s fictional partner on the zigga-zigga – is not in fact focused on the cut, but the cuticles . This nail shop at the corner of 125th St. and Broadway in NYC may not have the best reviews (unless “disgusting” is how you prefer your pedicure) , but to us the institution’s name will always possess a battle-tested polish.
