A superstar DJ, sought-after producer, taste-making label owner, and wizard behind Major Lazer, Diplo (aka Diplodocus, Wes Diplo, and Wes Gully) launched his career on the fringes of dance music. With his mash-up mixtapes, he found and created a sound where his musical tastes — ’80s pop, electronica, Dirty South hip-hop, and his major influence, Miami bass music — intersect. His attention-grabbing projects Hollertronix, with partner DJ Low Budget, and the Piracy Funds Terrorism, Vol. 1 mixtape, with British-Sri Lankan MC M.I.A., made a heavy impact on the alternative electro-pop scene, amassing rave reviews from music critics and indie kids alike. Later, his Mad Decent imprint presented the edge of pop, hip-hop, and dance music while his conceptual Major Lazer project mixed dancehall with rave culture and toured the globe as a live-party sound system. By the late 2010s, super duos with Skrillex (Jack Ü) and Mark Ronson (Silk City) both yielded Grammy wins for collaborations with Justin Bieber and Dua Lipa, respectively.
Ezekiel Elliott is the running back for the Dallas Cowboys. Having won several awards throughout his career, such as the ‘FedEx Ground Player of the Year’ and ‘Offensive Rookie of the Year’, Elliott can be considered one of the best players of the NFL. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Elliott has parents who were both involved in athletics. His father used to be a linebacker for the Missouri Football Team. Throughout his childhood, Elliott was quite active in sports, not just in football, but also in other sports like baseball and basketball.

He was drafted into the NFL by Cowboys in the 2016 NFL draft. Since his entry into the NFL, he has proved to be a very efficient player. He became the second Cowboys rookie who rushed more than 1000 yards in a single season. He also became the third running back to rush for 1000 yards after just a total of nine games in his career. Tall, well-built, and athletic, Elliott can be considered one of the most promising upcoming NFL stars in the coming years.

Primarily known for being one-third of the hip-hop/trap collective Migos, Quavo (real name Quavious Marshall) is a rapper and hip-hop artist from Lawrenceville, Georgia. Alongside Offset (his cousin) and Takeoff (his nephew), he helped form Migos in 2009 and they released their first mixtapes, Juug Season in 2011 and No Label in 2012. (No Label went on to receive a sequel in 2014.) However, it wasn’t until the release of the track “Versace” from their 2013 mixtape, Young Rich N*ggas, that they came to full prominence. The song was a breakout hit, receiving further exposure when Drake produced a remix. In 2014, Quavo was named “most influential rapper” by the online hip-hop community Complex Music. In subsequent years, he appeared on further releases with Migos, most notably their full-length albums Yung Rich Nation (2015) and C U L T U R E (2017). He also appeared on tracks like “Champions” for Kanye West’s GOOD Music label and performed alongside Young Thug on 2016’s “Fuck Cancer,” and on 2017’s “Go Off” with Travis Scott and Lil Uzi Vert for the Fate of the Furious movie soundtrack. Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, a collaborative project with Travis Scott, was also released in 2017. The following year, Quavo released a series of solo singles, including “Workin Me” and “Bubble Gum.” Those tracks found their way onto his official solo debut, Quavo Huncho, which arrived in October 2018. The album featured guests such as Drake, Travis Scott, Kid Cudi, 21 Savage, Offset, Takeoff, and even Madonna.
Steve-O (a.k.a. Stephen Glover) was willing to do whatever it took to become famous, even if it meant stapling his ball sack to his leg.
After failing miserably at the University of Miami, Steve-O was a homeless couch-surfer for three years before he attended Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, to help further his goal of becoming a famous stuntman. After graduating Clown College, determined to make it in Hollywood, he began to pitch his home videos to producers.
Eventually, Steve-O’s videos made it into the hands of Jeff Tremaine (Jackass Creator/Director/Producer), who was working with Johnny Knoxville to create a stunt-based reality show. The rest is history. MTV aired the first season of JACKASS in 2000.
Since then, Steve-O has had continued success, as a New York Times best-selling author with the release of his memoir, ‘Professional Idiot’, and he has established himself as a force in the world of stand-up comedy. He’s even landed a handful of acting roles in film and TV. Thus far (and still counting), his career as a performer has brought him to a total of 38 countries, and his first hour-long comedy special, GUILTY AS CHARGED, performed exceptionally well on Showtime.
First introduced to TV audiences as one of the seven strangers on “The Real World: Back to New York,” The Miz parlayed his reality TV fame into a legitimate WWE career.
And for those who think he’s a fluke, just ask him. He’ll tell you he’s not … and he’s right.
After finding tag team success alongside John Morrison early in his career, it didn’t take long for The Miz to reach the top of the mountain after breaking out on his own. Winning the Money in the Bank Ladder Match in July 2010 led him to cash in and become WWE Champion by defeating Randy Orton four months later, and he only continued to rack up the championships and accolades in the decade since.
His accomplishments extend far beyond the action inside the squared circle, however, as evidenced by being the host of the most must-see talk show in WWE history, “Miz TV,” and his starring role in his own primetime reality show alongside his wife Maryse and daughters Monroe and Madison, “Miz and Mrs.”
At the end of the day, The Miz is an A-Lister. And love him or loathe him, there’s no other Superstar like him. He’s The Miz, and he’s awesome.

While many fellow 15-year-olds were worried about sitting at the “popular table” at lunchtime, Drew McIntyre was already training to become a WWE Superstar. He didn’t have to wait terribly long to achieve his dream, either, as the endlessly athletic Scotsman skyrocketed from the U.K. independent scene to WWE before he was old enough to rent a car.
After an unexpected departure ended his first WWE run in 2014, McIntyre emerged back on the scene in 2017 and quickly rose to unprecedented heights. “The Scottish Warrior” came back bigger and badder than ever, riding a wave of momentum all the way to the main event of WrestleMania 36, where he defeated Brock Lesnar to capture his first WWE Championship. With an impressive list of title defenses already under his belt, McIntyre seems to be right at home embracing his Scottish heritage and warrior-like mentality.
McIntyre will not hesitate to drop any opponent with his patented Claymore, as the WWE Universe has seen him do already to the likes of Big Show, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins and many more. At the end of the day, the man just loves a good fight, and he is not the slightest bit shy about letting his counterparts know exactly that.

When the two-time Grammy Award winner isn’t creating hit songs with collaborators or on his own, Nelly ventures into film and television work.

In early 2019, he issued his debut full-length, Father of 4. Offset was married to Cardi B, though the up-and-down relationship of these two famous rappers was the topic of frequent public coverage.
