Chanel West Coast
Rating: 6

The pint-sized new rapper has given fans of Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory hints of her skills for years, with freestyles here and there on the popular MTV show. Chanel has also gained a following, beefed with Ke$ha and signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money camp in June. Her mixtape Now You Know, released over the weekend, is filled with bragging rights and clever raps. She still has a way to go (you can only ride the hashtag rhyme scheme for so long), she’s got time to do that by acting as one of the openers of Lil Wayne’s America’s Most Wanted Tour this month.
