He has released several classic mixtapes including Gucci Mane’s Chicken Talk, Pill’s Prescription 4180, and Yelawolf’s Trunk Muzik. I consider him to be a tastemaker because I’ve been discovering artists through his mixtapes and his blog for years. In addition to DJ’ing, Burn One is a dope producer.

DJ X-Rated is one of the most influential DJs in the country. If you didn’t know, DJ X-Rated is the main DJ at one of the premier strip clubs in Atlanta called Magic City, and he also DJ’s at Strokers, Kamaal 21, and Stacks (formerly the Body Tap). In Atlanta, the strip club scene is known as the the place to “break” new music by A&Rs, artists, etc. For more information, see the following spotlight on MTV.

DJ X-Rated is well known for breaking new music in the Atlanta music scene, and has DJ’ed at every major strip club in Atlanta including Magic City, Strokers, Body Tap, Kamaal 21, Pin Ups, Blue Flame, etc.  He has helped to break new records in Atlanta by several artists including Travis Porter (“Go Shorty Go”), Roscoe Dash (“All The Way Turnt Up”), D4L (“Laffy Taffy”), Young Jeezy (Trap or Die Mixtape), T.I.
