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
Cyhi Da Prynce – Sidewayz mp3
Cyhi Da Prynce – Living Wonderful mp3
Cyhi Da Prynce – Hero mp3
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
Kevin McCall – F*ck You Pay Me mp3
Kevin McCall feat. Tyga & Chris Brown – 360 mp3
Kevin McCall feat. The Game – Power Of The P mp3
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
Yelawolf feat. Gucci Mane – Wanna Party mp3
Yelawolf – Daddy’s Lambo mp3
Yelawolf – Stage Lights (remix) mp3
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
BIG K.R.I.T. – See Me On Top mp3
BIG K.R.I.T. feat. Curren$y & Smoke DZA – No Wheaties mp3
BIG K.R.I.T. feat. Curren$y & Wiz Khalifa – Glass House mp3
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
Pac Div – Anti Freeze mp3
Pac Div – It’s On mp3
Pac Div feat. Dom Kennedy, cARTer & Chip Tha Ripper – Don’t Forget the Swishers mp3
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.
With song topics ranging from Justin Bieber to Jesus Christ to Ellen Degeneres, I still haven’t figured out Lil B. I don’t know how many times I’ve said I’ll never listen to another of his tracks…
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?!
I wish there were more artists like Sam Adams going in on house/electro beats, but this video made me have to drop him down the list.
