Every year we come across new artists that produce great music with a lot of potential to make it within the music industry. This year we have seen the rise of many artists that are finally getting the recognition they deserve. These are the top five artists that we think you should be looking out for in the near future. We have a lot of faith that these artists will continue to break boundaries and it is only a matter of time until they blow up. In no particular order, here they are:
SNE which is an acronym for Sound Never Ends is an artist hailing from Hackney, East London that has recently been shutting down the UK. Anyone who has been following the journey of SNE will know that he has been making music for a while. However, 2015 seems like the year where SNE has finally found himself musically and since then he has been making nothing but power moves being noticed by the likes of Jamal Edwards, Charlie Sloth and the MOBOs. We predict great things for SNE in the future and we think you should all know what he has to offer before he blows up the music scene.
JB is an artist representing Leicester that has proved why he deserves to be next up. With the release of his debut EP ‘The XXX XXXX’ Chronicles’ he has brought something different to UK Rap and since then he has been working hard and has been attending a variety of shows, shutting down performances. JB has collaborated with many rappers from London and has made a name for himself as the next best thing to come out of the East Midlands. JB is on various media platforms and has accumulated over 100,000 views on Link Up TV alone. JB has a lot to offer and it is only right that you check out what he has in store because it is sure to make major moves.
North London rapper Ekeno has definitely been making moves this year and has released a series of bangers to prove that he is not playing about musically. Rapping from the age of 13, Ekeno has been mastering his craft and has produced quality music demonstrating hard lyrics, solid punch lines and vocal talent which is unique and refreshing. Ekeno teamed up with Yung Max, Peckz & Kilo Keemzo for the Dichino anthem “Catch Me In Dichino” and since then everyone has been talking about Ekeno. Ekeno makes music that inspires you to keep chasing your dreams and with the anthems Ekeno produces, it is only a matter of time until the music elevates him to a higher level in the music industry.
Che Lingo (@Che_Lingo)
Alternative Hip Hop rapper and songwriter Che Lingo is due to make waves this year and for years to come. With the release of his debut EP ‘The Risk Is Proof’ he has made a project that truly presents rap in its finest forms and has gained a dedicated following due to his refreshing style of Hip Hop. Che Lingo represents T.R.I.P which is an acronym for The Risk Is Proof and has dedicated his life to taking the necessary risks to achieve greatness. With many media platforms expecting positive things in the future for Che Lingo, after taking in his music we have to agree that Che Lingo definitely has something special to offer the UK.
Dave definitely has to be an artist to look out for. After the release of his Bl@ckbox freestyle we were instantly hooked with his level of lyricism and rawness. We have not heard an artist at just 16 years of age rapping with so much passion and emotion, which is why we can only imagine what he has in store for the UK Rap scene. Dave recently joined the Bl@ckbox Hardest U18’s Cypher 2015 and easily stood out from the majority of rappers which proves that he has the potential to become one of the best rappers we have seen in a long time. The UK is anticipating more material from Dave and we are sure that in due time he will be looking to show the UK what he is really made of. Check him out on Sun, Sex and Suspicious Police
