Let’s be real: Most celebrity DJs are megaphone-mouthed hype men with weak mixing skills unlike the incredibly-talented DJs on this list who are ONE major co-sign away from mainstream stardom.

Hit the jump for the most SLEPT-ON DJs in the game.

Swamp Izzo , Atlanta (@SWAMPIZZO)

The newest member of Cash Money’s Rich Gang/YMCMB collective has everything a DJ needs to be legendary: Incredible mic presence, flawless song selection and a golden ear for what’s hot in the streets. You can check him out on Sirius XM Radio–Ch. 44 and Atlanta’s Blue Flame.

Don Cannon, Global (@DonCannon)

Known mostly for his Grammy-worthy production/trailblazing work with the Affiliates, Cannon is more than just the voice on your favorite mixtape series. He’s also a party-rocking DJ who demands your attention in the club.

DJ Buttafingaz, Power 98–Charlotte, N.C. (@Buttafingaz704)

Charlotte is quietly becoming the hottest destination for young urban professionals seeking affordable living, glorious weather and a cool social scene. Best DJ in the city (and maybe the Carolinas)? Butta and it’s not close.

DJ Quicksilva, 93. 9WKYS-D.C./Global (@DJQUICKSILVA)

The charismatic Ciroc Boy has the perfect blend of mic presence and song selection. You’ll thoroughly enjoy yourself at his parties.

DJ Wally Sparks, Atlanta (@djwallysparks)

Quiet. Humble. Lowkey. And one of the coolest DJs that you’ll ever lean and rock to.

DJ Bee, 103 Jamz–Norfolk, Va (@DJBeeOnline)

Everyone in the greater tidewater area will tell you that Beesus is the truth. Living legend (on the low)? No question.
