I'm substituting bands as musicians/music group.
2. Mos Def
Prince MC Chris!
Honorable Mentions: The Temptations, Charlie Parker, Iggy Pop, Stevie Ray Vaughn. And a few others, but I'd end up just naming every artist who's material I own.
It's a little hard to really put it down to 5. That's leaving out a lot of musicians influential to me, as well as just entertaining.
