DJ Don Cannon, Atlant's Finest

Master producer Don Cannon is a world-renowned tastemaker who has worked with a who's who of top 10 rappers including Outkast, Young Jeezy, 50 Cent, and Ludacris. Cannon pioneered his unique sound at Clark Atlanta University, where he joined forces with fellow Philadelphia natives to form a DJ collective known as The Aphilliates. His work on the “Gangsta Grillz” mixtape series along with a stint on Sirius Satellite Radio's “Shade 45” helped position him as one of ATL's hottest DJs and personalities.

Cannon has since parlayed his success into Cannon Music, a full service production and promotion company. He's also teamed up with DJ Drama and DJ Sense to create The Academy, an institution that helps prepare the next generation of music entrepreneurs for success.

Lil Durk, Drill Pioneer

Born and raised in Chicago's South Side, Lil Durk has been grinding hard to make a name for himself from the start. He quickly set himself apart from his peers with a mix of Auto-Tuned singing and straight-up raps. Durk even established his own label, Only The Family (OTF), while continuing to drop mixtapes. The hustle paid off as Def Jam signed him in 2012 just as Chi-Town's drill scene began to go mainstream. Since then, Durk has released two full-length albums and collaborated with Rick Ross, French Montanta, Meek Mill and Ty Dolla $ign.

Koji the Bandit, Feel-Good Beatsmith

Born in Brooklyn and raised in Mobile, Alabama, Koji The Bandit grew up surrounded by different genres of music, from Soul and R&B to Funk and Hip-Hop. He first became interested in music production in 9th grade, and the rest is history. Since 2003, the man known to friends as "Saint," has been crafting sounds for local acts as well as regional artists throughout the South, including No Suh Foster, Lil Nardy, Translee, RaRa, and Eugenius.
