Cab Calloway

The bandleader who added "hi-de-ho" to the world's music vocabulary and made a cultural icon out of "Minnie the Moocher" moved to Baltimore in 1918, when he was 10. Check out the 1980 movie "The Blues Brothers" -- that's Calloway playing Curtis, the janitor, alongside John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.
