The Importance Of The DJ's Role In The Rap Music Business

Here is a YouTube clip from the video "The Mixtape Documentary" featuring many acclaimed hip hop artists and producers, including; RZA, N.O.R.E., 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Mobb Deep to name a few.

I always liked this video because it puts into perspective how important the DJ's role is in the rap music business. You cannot be on a fully fledged indie artist grind if you have not established working relationships with the DJ's of your local or regional markets.

Here's a dope track called "The DJ" by KRS-One feat. Dj Revolution which sums up the DJ's role perfectly in a creative song. Peep this.
