10. DJ Screw

The creator of the screwed-and-chopped technique, the late, legendary DJ Screw's released a series of hugely influential '90s mixtapes with his crew, the Screwed Up Click. Screw's syrupy sound eventually became his city's signature, and can still be heard today in the music of ASAP Rocky, Big KRIT and others.
