Over at Cratekings, there was a spirited conversation about the most "slept-on" producers. The conversation got a little out of control because there were as many definitions of "slept-on" as there were opinions of who is actually "slept-on." The post did get me thinking about "slept-on" deejays. For argument's sake, "slept-on" will be defined as "deejays who do not receive proper recognition, given their deejay skills and contributions to deejay culture."
Also, the below deejays are excluded from the conversation because there is no way anybody could convince me that they are "slept-on."
- Jazzy Jeff - Q-Bert
- Roc Raida - DJ Revolution
- Kid Capri - DJ Premier
- J. Rocc - Pete Rock
- Babu - Mix Master Mike
