Best DJ of 2010
Being a good DJ is about much more than simply working the turntables or yelling at full volume, it's about being a finding and developing new talent, and this year DJBooth readers selected DJ Green Lantern as 2010's leading trendsetter. From his work with up-and-comers like Thee Tom Hardy to established vets like Royce da 5'9", if it's dope hip-hop, you can count on DJ Green Lantern to be involved.
There's a reason the DJBooth staff selected DJ Skee to put together our Best of the Booth Vol. 4 mixtape. More than "just" a DJ, Skee is an entrepreneur and media personality who also just so happens to be helping to lead the west coast's hip-hop resurgence. Add in his laid back style on mixtapes (see his work on Grizzly City 3), which serves as a welcome change from the hyperbolic screaming of most DJs, and our choice was clear.
