Kool DJ Red Alert
This list would not be complete with hip hop pioneer, DJ Red Alert. This man is very well respected in the industry. He started off in hip hop as a member of the Zulu NAtion which included A tribe Called quest (whom he helped get their big break in music), Movie Love and De La Soul. As his legendary DJ status rose, he moved into radio on the now defunct NYC station Kiss FM and kept himself relevant. He now does guest mixes on various traditional and internet radio shows. DJ Red Alert has done it all and is a living legend.
