San Antonio Stand out Aliza1k has been building a solid name in the Texas underground music scene with Grimey lyrical onslaughts over thunderous 808 driven anthems. The 21 year old artist is coming off the release of her critically acclaimed, “PRESSURE”, project back in October of 2019. I look forward to seeing Aliza1k evolve more artistically in 2020, in regards to subject matter & production. Stream her latest project, “PRESSURE”, below:

Filling the position of the fifth pick on this list is none other than BTG Records standout KB YUNG HUSTLE. Originally from Miami now residing in NY, KB Yung Hustle is the definition of a skilled emcee. I knew he was special after my friends at Ablaze Radio contacted me about his bubbling record, “NOD YA HEAD”, and this dope record he premiered on Ablaze Radio titled, “Believe”. The former Stones Throw signee, has received the nod of approval from many respected in the industry including legendary Detroit emcee, Royce da 5’9. Stream his fire track, “NOD YA HEAD”, below:

4. Scuttino

Hailing out of Oak Cliff, Texas, Hip Hop artist Scuttino brings the warmness, poetic grace, vibe & aesthetic of a Billboard Hot 100 artist. I stumbled across Scuttino after watching him perform in Dallas back in 2019. When I tell you that Scuttino has the makings of the next modern day DFW star, I am not lying. Just listen to his standout tracks: “Wake Up”, “Beautiful Day” & “No Contact”. Then you can tell me how you feel! I look forward to seeing Scuttino blossom in this game. Stream his latest project “KID TAPE” below:

3. John Jigg$

Social Media: @jiggsthegreat (Twitter) & @john_jiggs (Instagram)

Long Island, New York standout John Jigg$ is Bar for Bar, one of my favorite emcees to come out of New York within the past 10 years. The level of consistency from Jigg$ is unmatched on this list, with a discography that has gained him an international fan base, and sent him on many tours. Jigg$ is the journeyman on this list of artist, and 2020 should be another year of Consistency from Jigg$. He recently performed at the Amway arena also known as the home of the Orlando Magic, Jigg$ continues building momentum each time I see him. Some of his standout records are “Everyday”, “Nights Like This” & “Revolvers”.Stream John Jigg$ Latest record “Self Made” below:

2. Lex Lu

Social Media: @lexluofficial

When you talk about what it means to have the “IT” factor, you have to mention Lex Lu of Los Angeles. The Four season 1 alumni, has shown she can entertain a crowd of any size. To watch an artist deliver cool rhymes, sing, and have amazing choreography to go with it, says a lot about how much of a great artist that Lex Lu really is. Some of her standout records for me are: “So Far”, “Kill Bill”, “Twerk”, “All In” & “Money”. Checkout Lex Lu content & music starting with “All In”:

1. Jaye Newton

Social Media: @jayenewton

ATL Hip Hop artist Jaye Newton is the kind of artist that understands how to effectively convey true emotion in his music, the way he paints a picture with his lyrics is very special, I haven’t seen a young artist so mature as Jaye Newton in such a long time. I enjoyed the theme, flow, production, and arrangement of his 2017 album, “Real Men Wear Pink”. In addition, to that project Newton has built a name for being one of ATLs hottest young performers. I look forward to watching Jaye Newton reach new heights in 2020. Stream his latest album “Just Pray for Me” below:

So, again to revisit my opening statement, when people say “Hip Hop is Dead”, that means they aren’t looking hard enough (No shade)! They can start by looking through the discographies of the six talented acts mentioned above, and sharing their music to someone who they think will enjoy their music!
