4. Teetimus
Rockstar Teetimus

Teetimus had one of the biggest years of anyone in dancehall—behind the boards. The Brooklyn/JA-based beatmaker produced the year’s two biggest crossover tunes in Mr. Vegas’ “Bruk it Down” and Damian Marley’s “Affairs of the Heart,” and even sold a track to Trey Songz. But Teetimus, who has also been known to go by the moniker “Rock Star,” is also an artist, having featured most recently alongside Vybz Kartel on “UFO Medz.” If he can elevate his vocals to the level of his EDM-influenced productions, he might just have a future in front of the mic.
