DJ RQ Way is one of our favorite DJs in New Orleans for a few reasons. He is an artist who doesn’t limit himself. He has shared the stage with superstars like Erykah Badu, Maxwell, and Jay Electronica. He’s also collaborated with brands like Tidal, Jack Daniels, Blavity, Complex, and Spotify to name a few!

1. DJ Kelly Green 

DJ Kelly Green is by far our favorite DJ success story of 2017. She’s been holding down Curren$y’s Jet Life Recordings label on tour, and locally at their weekly Industry Nights, and Jet Lounges. DJ Kelly Green is also a very gifted producer. This is someone who has earned every bit of success that she has. She has been putting in work for a few years and we see her growth!
