    I don't know why I'm makin this thread but I feel like contributing more to this forum. Will try to update this thread as often as possible (possibly every Friday, not limited to only rap artists). Feel free to state your opinion and if you think they will have a future. Starting with...

    10cellphones



    10cellphones is an North Carolina based emcee. His most popular song right now is LEAN and what can I say, the youtube algorithm did it's thing when it got recommended to me. His other songs bang too, to quote a Youtube comment: Bra got tha formula he jus need a push.

    Billyracxx



    Ok, so this dude is nuts. He is different, I just haven't figured out yet if he's trying too hard to be different or if that's just himself. Anyways I love his songs and the vibe they got. At first listen it might be a little bit unsatisfying because you would expect different, flow-wise and all that, but after some time you are starting to dig his music. He has a website where he basically describes himself and his craft (very confidently) so I won't do this here. I discovered him through CHASETHEMONEY who produced a couple of his songs. To quote a youtube comment from DEADFRIENDS: I was weirdly attracted to this idk why but i like it

    JBrisko








    JBrisko is mad talented and probably on of my favorites, that I have discovered so far. I admit some of his songs do have an strong early XXXTentacion influence but he is definitely not a clone. He has so many amazing songs (couldn't even decide which one to post). As far as I know he hasn't made a project yet but he will release one called "Midnight Dasher" independently soon. He has a handful of songs on Youtube, Spotify and Soundcloud tho. I linked my favorites in this post (How It Goes is f--king beautiful, like damn). A youtuber which name I can't recall anymore put Night Show in their endcard and so I got into his stuff. To quote a youtube comment from said song: TOO UNDERRATED.... WHY.

    EDIT: I can't link any more media in OP

    @awhellno this is the kinda shit i f--king love

    10cellphones is fire! Definitely wanna check out what other shit he's done. From the songs you posted that comment sums him up perfectly, he ticks all the boxes, he can probably do really well given enough exposure.

    Billyracxx is just... wow. It sounds like Playboi Carti meets Zillakami lmao. And his videos are mental. I need to let this shit sink in but I'm liking it. Any full project recommendations for either?

    You should definitely check out Billyracxx latest album "Religion" since this is the direction he is going for.

    With 10cellphones it's kinda a "Pick what you like". He hasn't really made a cohesive album or anything. The albums he has on spotify and the Long Leg Ep weren't that exciting, his singles are way superior. I'm confident he will drop a good project in the future tho.

    Ok so new week, new artist. Lemme know if I should recommend two artists per week, since most of them barely have output or that many songs.

    JBrisko

    Uzi/Trippie influence is STRONG. nothing jaw-dropping but he's dope. Would like to see him do his own thing more rather than riding those artists' wave.

    Came across an earlier track from 2018, which I really liked.

    No Hip Hop artist this week, but an amazing pop group instead. I hope that they will become big soon, because right now they are criminally underrated. Without further redo I present you...

    Terror Jr










    Terror Jr was founded by The Cataracs band member David "Campa" Benjamin Singer-Vine, Lisa Vitale (whose identity was unknown for a while, people even thought Kylie Jenner was the singer because she posted a few songs on snapchat or whatever lol), and Felix Snow, who left the group in 2017. So Felix Snow was the reason I got into this group, because I'm a huge fan of his music and they absolutely rocked it. Their first project was Bop City and it has Felix Snow written all over it. The production is simplistic yet amazing, but it's still unapologetically pop. Their music is groovy, you can vibe to it, dance to it, it makes you feel good. Check it out for yourself. Bop City and Unfortunately, Terror Jr are projects that you should check out first, there are no bad songs on it, I swear. With Unfortunately, Terror Jr they proved, that they can also do it without Felix Snow. Next week, we go back to Hip Hop and might even visit the worlds biggest real life GTA server: Florida.

    Bonus for people, who want to check out Felix Snow

    SInce I won't have time tomorrow, I'mma drop another artist today. Up next we got Florida native
    438 Tok










    Straight from Orlando, FL, emerges a new talent: 438 Tok. He had some collabs with 9lokknine and made some buzz with his tape "438 Babies" with Rico Cartel, but the song that's reallybeen putting me on, was "Percolator". I had that shit on repeat for the longest time. Say what you want about his other stuff, but this song alone deserves him some recognition, what a banger. This is as floridian as it gets. If you like this type of music you should give him a spin, otherwise he might not be for you. I linked some of my faves in this post. To quote a youtube comment from "Percolator": Beat slaps like an abusive husband.​

    This weeks entry is a lil bit softer again. Dude goes by the name of
    Amen Deniro




    Shoutout Elevator for putting me on. Yeah, I have not much to say about this dude, who is a french canadian artist btw . He is not really consistent with releasing songs, hence there are not many of them, but the ones I found are pretty good. Has a frank ocean type of vibe mixed with some PartyNextDoor, so a pretty good combination if u ask me. I feel like with more songs like "Off The Liquor", and some push, he can be a big player one day.

    EDIT: Apparently he is releasing one song per month in 2020, so by the end of the year we will have an album lol. Off The Liquor ist the first entry.

    Was busy this weekend but I ain't forget. I know that this thread is basically me talking to myself right now, but I will still continue to post new artists as frequently as possible. If it helps someone to find new shit to listen to, it's worth it. This weeks artist has Pi'erre Bourne on his side, but is still flying under the radar:

    Chavo











    So y'all might know that Pi'erre is part of a creative group/label called SossHouse, where Chavo is also a part of. He is a rapper from Atlanta and one of the more unknown artists that frequently collaborates with Pi'erre (others would be Frazier Trill and Jelly, who has a new album executive produced by Pi'erre called 'The Wolf Of Peachtree" out, which I would also recommend). I'm not super confident how Chavo's career will turn out though. I feel like I would not listen to him if there was no Pi'erre production, but he definitely fits it very well and has a nice flow. Projects you should check out are 'Hood Luva Vol. 1' and 'Mixed Emotions w/ Pi'erre'. Also check his soundcloud, there might be some gems on there.

    I like this dude. Definitely right that he's got the style and flow down, wasn't sure about the first few songs but Thankful and Bet Cool got me. Really dope. I'd actually like to hear him on some different production, Pierre is great and all but would be interesting to hear him flowing over something a little darker.
