ScHoolboy Q

(Black Hippy Crew)

"Biggie and Nas – put they ass in a blender, sprinkle some 50 and came out this nigga…" – ScHoolboy Q

For the first time in a long time, Hip Hop can genuinely say that a new generation of MC's have arrived. Sure, there are those who helped birth the culture and music and people who can say they grew up with it. But now, you are witnessing perhaps the first generation that can say they were raised on Hip Hop almost exclusively. If you don't agree, you're probably not listening to enough ScHoolboy Q.

Although the artist born Quincy Matthew Hanley has only been rapping since 2007, his bluntly charismatic presence on wax should've already put him on your radar as one of rap's emerging voices. After his new project Habits & Contradictions (#HnC) makes its way into your rotation though, he's sure to be a fixture.

Isaiah Rashad is a Chattanooga, Tennessee born songwriter/producer, that’s a hybrid of new and old school Hip hop and abstract soul. He was raised primarily by his mother and his step father. Rashad was submerged in hip hop at a very young age.
Rashad first began rapping seriously in 9th grade, while he and his friends would record on old mac desktops w no mics. After high school, he went to Middle Tennessee State University, first with the thought to become an audio engineer, but then settled on sociology. After flunking out of school, he lived couch to couch with his friends and begun to record music. In December 2012, Rashad started gaining attention from various record labels and A&R’s, by releasing many free singles on Soundlcloud. In March 2013, Rashad signed to Carson, California-based independent record label Top Dawg Entertainment.

On January 28, 2014, he released Cilvia Demo, his first extended play, via digital distribution. Cilvia Demo was met with widespread acclaim from music critics and debuted at number 40 on the US Billboard 200. Following the release Rashad was named to the 2014 XXL freshman class. He then spent most of 2014 on the Oxymoron tour as direct support for ScHoolboy Q. After a year hiatus, on September 2, 2016, he released his debut studio album, “The Sun's Tirade,” which peaked at number 17 on the Billboard 200. Rashad continues to record music while he preps to kick off his Lil Sunny Tour this January 2017.

West coast representer Vince Staples paints vivid picture with his words on a new track, titled "Guns N Roses." The young MC revisits some of life's more precarious situations, much of which stem from living in impoverished circumstances. Mac Miller, who has been displaying a lot of his production savvy as of late, created the cut.
