45. DJ Kool

DJ Kool's control over a party is the stuff of legend. He was already a veteran of D.C.'s go-go scene, warming up the crowd for Rare Essence, when he began making hip hop records that captured the frenzied energy of his parties. His most known hit, the 1996 call-and-response classic "Let Me Clear Throat" is still a go-to for DJs worldwide.
