CCA JONAS – COMMITTED
16 year old CCA Jonas is a rapper from Bergen, Norway with a soundcloud friendly Bankroll Hayden / Lil Yachty type cadence. He’s running up some numbers on streaming and has just penned a deal with Def Jam locally so will be one to watch.
K.I.N.G THE MC- UGO
Crisp, clean raps in a ruthless Joyner Lucas type delivery. K.I.N.G. is an acronym for Knowledge Inspiring New Greatness and the Nashville, TN rapper is shooting for the stars on new cut UGO dedicated to newly drafted Seattle Seahawk Ugo Amadi.
SWEETS – SMOKING AREA
Grime drop out of the North of the UK. Emcee on the come up Sweets comes from Newcastle but resides in Manchester. A youngin to peep if you spinnin fellow Manc Aitch.
Straight bars from a NY link-up as Ninety and Benny From The North display top quality penmanship over a classic throwback beat from producer Sloppy Joe. If you bumpin’ Griselda Records give these other East Coast cats a spin.
MOTENKO – SILHOUETTE
Hailing from Austin, Texas, this quartet is bringing silky smooth R&B vibes. New single Silhouette is on an early 2000’s D’Angelo vibe. Bedroom music.
