Best DJ of 2009
Though 2009 found DJ Drama living up to his name, that didn't stop the Mixtape King from having one of his biggest years yet. In addition to assembling a cast of Southern superstars and hungry up-and-comers for Gangsta Grillz: The Album (Vol. 2), the Aphilliates Music Group co-owner dropped street albums with Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy, Game and many more.

Not only does Don Cannon have the coolest producer tag in the game ("Cannon...cannon...cannon"), Don was everywhere you looked this year, lending his production talents to major projects like 50's Before I Self Destruct while shepherding younger acts like The Cool Kids into the spotlight with dope mixtapes - and we haven't even gotten into his long list of radio, tv and performance credits yet. Much like our very own DJ Z, Don Cannon indeed did it real big in 2009.
