Across the glorious and chequered pages of hip-hop history, instigators have always played a crucial role. Born of both purposeful actions and seemingly meaningless remarks that’d be blown out of proportion, the genre operates with an inherently short fuse. Nowadays, within a hip-hop media realm that requires sensationalised news to come churning off the assembly line, troublemakers are god-sends. Meaning that, whether it’s Soulja Boy, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s trolling sprees, Kodak Black’s unchecked disrespect, or 50 Cent acting as a cultural debt collector, these artists never fail to leave headlines in their wake. But when it comes to hip-hop figures that excels in manufacturing chaos, few have come close to DJ Vlad.
