The premise up for debate here is that a DJ is not a real musician. I am taking the Con position. So Pro is required to rationalize and provide an opinion for why a Dj is not a real musician. I will provide my argument in round 2.

Some times musicians also DJ. I am going to assume we are talking (for the sake of this debate) about Dj's who are only DJ's and musicians who are only musicians. In other words we're not talking about people who do both. correct me if I am wrong. ok moving on.

Musician- 1. A person who plays a musical instrument, especially as a profession, or is musically talented.
2. A composer, conductor, or performer of music; especially : instrumentalist

DJ- 1. a person who introduces and plays recorded popular music on the radio.
"he was the only DJ to play our last release on the radio"
2. as a verb- to play recorded music on the radio or at a club or party.

A musician creates music. It is his/her creativity being expressed in the song. It is their creation.
A DJ expresses their creativity in the way they present a musician's work. They did not create the song.

By definition, A DJ is a person who plays a Musicians music. They are two different things.

Some DJ's are also Musicians and vice versa but they are not the same thing. One creates the music and the other introduces it.
