9.Mitchum “Khan” Chin


Mitchum “Khan” Chin’s name may not be as familiar as other names on this list but, as a member of the Firehouse Crew and also Buju’s Til Shiloh Band, he has been one of Jamaica’s most in-demand stage guitarists. (Watch him holding down Beres Hamond live in New York in the clip above). Quietly, Khan has also been one of the major forces behind the one-drop revival of the mid 2000s, featuring on records like Tarrus Riley’s “She’s Royal” and collaborating with Black Chiney’s Supa Dups on tracks for John Legend and Estelle.
