1. Princess Nokia
Princess Nokia is a multidimensional Afro-Nuyorican rapper. She challenges a lot of society's norms through her music and is one of those radically individual artists that you don't see all that often. Her recent mixtape "1992" has been doing great since its release in September, and her international buzz is growing on the daily. Check out the video for "Tomboy" below!

This Florida raised R&B artist now lives in Nashville and is making waves with his dark, pensive lyrics and dynamic vocals. In his words, he is inspired by love lost. He has two projects out- "Till the End of Summer", which dropped in 2014 and got a lot of circulation, and V2-EP which came out in 2015. Check out his latest single "Drugs" with a feature from Pusha T.

Ciscero is a hip-hop artist from Maryland who is a stand-out name in the DMV rap scene. His single "Kids Wear Crowns" got great traction about a year ago. Since then he has dropped a few more singles as his fans wait for the full "Kids Wear Crowns" EP. Working with some major names, he absolutely kills his feature on Gold Link's "Fall in Love" produced by Kaytranada and BadBadNotGood. Definitely keep an eye on this man!
