Top Reggae DJs & MCs

Throughout my musical career I have been influenced by many great artists. There are those who sing out in rebellion and those who wish to spread love all over the world.
I have compiled my list of top reggae DJs and MCs, based on what I feel they have contributed to the field of reggae music.

Now this list is not exhaustive so feel no way if it is missing somebody that you feel should be on it.
Let me know if you agree with my choices so far and look out for the new entries soon to come.

If you had to make a top ten list of reggae DJs and MCs, who would you have on it?

In no particular order, I proudly present:

ROYAL REGGAE DJs & MCs

Daddy U-Roy

D.O.B


Even though he doesn’t take the credit, Daddy U Roy is the first DJ. I call him the ‘Original General’. He was the one who made this part of our music popular. Ever humble Daddy U Roy has taken this discipline to the world. There is so much to be said about this man. It would take me twenty years to write. All MCs and DJs should pay homage to this great man.

Reggae great Daddy U Roy; we salute you!

Buju Banton

D.O.B


In my view Buju is probably one of the best of all great reggae DJs. Buju is a man with such passion for reggae music, Jamaicans and Jamaica. He has been singled out for the same reason Marcus Garvey was not so long ago. Self-expression led to condemnation for Buju. However when a man is truly gifted, that light cannot be distinguished.

Reggae King Buju Banton; we salute you!

We mostly call him Jah Youth these days. What an artist, what a character and what a performer! Big Youth is one of the most influential DJs of his generation. He’s the man who brought the rastaman culture to the forefront, DJ style.

Brigadier Jerry and his bible chants are legendary.
