This month’s class boasts: an orchestral composer who spins at the legendary Berlin club Berghain, an Xbox “2K legend” who hangs out with his hero Mos Def, and a rapper who wants his fans to text him directly. Needless to say, their music isn’t the only thing that makes these creators ones to watch.
