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.(Photo: John Ricard / BET)

DJ Kool Herc - DJ Kool Herc is understood to be the father of hip hop. That's quite a title, but it's one that's well-deserved, as the Jamaican-born, Bronx-raised legend created break beats, which would serve as a launching pad for the music and culture. (Photo: WENN.com)

1. Grandmaster Flash - Grandmaster Flash has left an indelible, impossible-to-miss mark on hip hop, popular music and DJing. A key party-rocker in rap's nascent South Bronx days, Flash is credited with inventing the cross-fader using discarded electronic parts found in a local junkyard. Later, as leader of Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, he was behind two seminal records: "The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel," an instrumental turntable solo that marked the first time scratching was recorded on wax; and "The Message," the hugely influential prototype for all socio-political rap to follow. Flash and the Furious Five were the first hip hop group to be inducted into the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame, in 2007. (Photo: Chris McGrath/Getty Images)
