Hip Hop Artists Who Deserve More Attention Than They Already Have

Posted at April 27th, 2017 | by Aashna Anand | in Entertainment, Featured, Hip-Hop/Rap, Videos

Hip Hop music came into existence thanks to the inner city African- American in the 1970s. The genre started becoming popular due to the bloc parties of that era. It held great influence of disco music, and ironically the rise of Hip Hop music caused an eventual decline of disco music.

Fast forward to 2000s,  artists like Dr Dre, Lil Jon, Nelly, Kanye West and more remained important figures of the Hip Hop music industry. As of 2017, we’ve all been chilling and partying to the sounds by artists like Future, Migos, Ty Dolla $ign, Kendrick Lamar and more, but there are certain artists who deserve a lot more attention than they have already.

 

Russ

 

American Hip Hop recording artist Russ started writing rap songs when he was only seven. By fourteen, he had begun making beats and recorded his first song when he was eighteen. In 2016, he signed with Columbia Records and released “What They Want” and “Losin Control” that were certified gold!

 


 

Anderson Paak

 

 

Brandon Paak Anderson goes by the name Anderson Paak and often Breezy Lovejoy too on stage. He’s been in the Hip Hop music scene since 2009. He managed to bag a Grammy nomination for his album  ‘Malibu’, 2016. He was named one of XXL Freshman in 2018 alongside artists like Desiigner, Lil Yatchy, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage and more, and he’s definately the one you should check out!

 


Rich Chigga

 

 

Brian Imanuel (Rich Chigga) is an Indonesian Hip Hop artist and comedian from Jakarta. He taught himself English by watching Youtube videos and listening to artists like Tyler, The Creator, Macklemore, 2 Chainz,and Childish Gambino. It is safe to say that he is one of the most fluent and comprehensible rappers in the scene right now. His singles Dat $tick took the internet by storm. His remix of Skrillex and Zhu’s Working For It is an absolute banger!

 


 

Blackbear

 

 

Matthew Tyler Musto, proffesionally known as blackbear, is an American Hip Hop artists best known for his Rap and R&B oriented music. His ‘Idfc’ is one that all of us have heard and there’s a lot more of his work to listen to if you’re into that kind of music. Interestingly, he also co wrote Justin Bieber’s ‘Boyfriend’. He has collaborated with various artists such as Mike Posner, G Eazy, Machine Gun Kelly, Childish Gambino, Linkin Park, and a lot more!

 

 


 

Logic

 

 

Sir Robert Bryson Hall II doesn’t really sound like a name of a Hip Hop artist, and so this man goes by the name Logic. He ventured his career as a musical artist by releasing mixtapes, following which he scored a record label deal. His debut studio album “Under Pressure” debuted at number four on the U.S Billboard Top 200 chart! He’s releasing another album on the 5th of May and we’re sure you’d like to watch out for it.
