It's the spirit of PLUR, minus the E, with a few wrinkles around the eyes for good measure. It's not going to pay the bills. Jibril went down that road before. But for one night a month, it's a rush and a small reminder of what was.

"Things are still good. It's different, man. It's not really the same. I feel, like…really at home a lot more now. Back then, I was a hip-hop kid, I hung out in the rave scene, but I didn't really connect so much with all these kids. They were all, like, electronic hippies," he says. "I love everything else that I do…but there's something about Rent. I feel like I connect to these people a lot more now. I feel like I can just talk to them through the music."

The party, and his smile, last until 4 a.m. this Saturday night. On Monday morning, the alarm clock goes off and he's back to being Gabriel again.

Brotha Jibril makes his dough by day as an office guy 
and courts his muse by night as a DJ.
