Before saucing and balling on the rap game, the braided singer/spitter began making music six years ago and has become a viral sensation thanks to his smooth cut "White Iverson."
The Miami-bred rapster is unapologetic on wax but his 2014 'tape No Hard Feelings soundtracks the millennial movement with flair. Expect "John Geiger" to ring off in Philly.
With collaborations alongside Vic Mensa and Chance The Rapper already in the bag, this jazz aristocrat has the kind of chops that stop you in your tracks ("Tommy" and "Latch" with Jeff Gibbs are la flame). Crank up her SoundCloud, light some candles and clutch a glass of wine for a good time.
This Chicago MC has been slowly burning up timelines thanks to his 2014 mixtape, The Water(s) and latest release, Wave(s). He's no man overboard when it comes to his bars about black lives mattering (See: "Martyrs"); one listen and it's easy to see how the street poet goes against the tide.
This Roc Nation signee already has Hov's approval but the Detroit songstress can rock out on her own. From her original work like "Black Jeans" to her rendition of A$AP Rocky's "L$D," her gritty funk-rock demands your instant RSVP to her stage show.
