DJ Drama 

Were it not for DJs, hip hop wouldn’t be the global business it is today. Early pioneers like Kool Herc, who plugged his speakers to a NYC lamppost and got the party started. In its formative years, it was all about the DJ. MCs would brag about their DJs’ track selection and scratching ability. Why? Because the DJ dictated which MC could get on the mic.
