Take a minute to check out Amerikas Addiction’s newest single “Lights”. Even though this track will not be on AA’s highly anticipated album, “The Key”, dropping on September 11th, 2012, it provides a good idea of what we can hope to hear. Preliminary info on “The Key” includes production by big names like:

Be sure to check out Part 1 of my “Artists To Watch” here. The rest goes like this:
Cyhi Da Prynce
Kanye’s most recent addition to GOOD Music, Cyhi is almost guaranteed to blow up. Still waiting on Big Sean’s album though.
Cyhi Da Prynce – Royal Flush mixtape
An initial afterthought on Chris Brown & Tyga’s “Fan of a Fan” mixtape, Kevin McCall out-shined both headliners. He also is deep in the producing/writing game with hits like CB’s “Dueces” and Big Sean’s “What U Doin”.
Kevin McCall – Uninvited Guest mixtape
Who would’ve thought 2011 would be the year of the white rapper? They all have completely different styles – I’m not sure how to describe Yelawolf’s…
Yelawolf – Trunk Muzik mixtape
Honestly, I’ve been sleeping on BIG K.R.I.T. for far too long. Good flows, and he makes his own beats.
BIG K.R.I.T. – Krit Wuz Here mixtape
This rap trio from Southern California has been around for a while now, but they’re definitely gaining more play recently. Hopefully “Mania!” drops any day now.
Pac Div – Don’t Mention It mixtape
Cory Gunz/Lil Twist
Young Money’s representatives this year. Gunz definitely has the DNA to make it in the rap game. And I still think of this clip from The Carter Documentary whenever I hear Lil Twist. These 2 will be big over the next few years.
He may of turned down XXL, but he can’t turn down my list! Honestly, I haven’t listened to enough of his music to put him any higher.
Dude definitely has skills – must be in his genes. But he’s kind of like the Bieber of rap for me. Plus, AT&T commercials already?!
Mike Posner feat. Lil’ Wayne -Bow Chicka Wow Wow
Chip Tha Ripper – Light One Up
Bei Maejor – The Lala Song
J. Cole Feat. Drake – In The Morning
Chris Brown feat. Kevin McCall – Real Hip Hop Shit
Gucci Mane feat. Soulja Boy & Yo Gotti- Burrr

Here’s the list for this year. The only qualification is that you can’t be on my list from last year. That means your name can’t be Tyga, KiD CuDi, Charles Hamilton, Drake, Mickey Factz, Jae Millz, Wale or Willy Northpole (a pretty decent list). I’ve included some kind of demonstration for each artist, which could be a mixtape, mp3 or video. In no particular order:
One of the best albums of last year:
Big Sean destroys Bangladesh/Gucci Mane’s ‘Lemonade’ beat:
I know I just posted this but:
This was one of my ‘Best Mixtapes of 2009‘:
I gotta admit – I’ve been sleeping on J. Cole this past year. Check this out though:
Chip Tha Ripper
Check out an artist from Cleveland that’s not named CuDi:
Currently, she is the only relevant female rapper. Here is the new video with Mariah Carey:
Could be the future of music. Here are some exhibits to demonstrate:
I gotta mention another Young Money artist since I had three on the list last year. Check out some singles:
Until his next mixtape, ‘Vizzy Zone’, drops…:
I’ve been a fan of Kane Beatz‘s beats since first hearing ‘Spaceship‘ by Treal on Myspace years back. You should check it out; it’s a really catchy beat. Recently, Mr. Beatz is more famous for making the beat for ‘Bedrock‘ by Young Money and Lloyd (also very catchy). Check out a few other songs he’s produced over the past few years including his newest contributions on Young Money’s ‘We Are Young Money’:
