The Michigan emcee has been building a hype for a couple of years but its just recently that he's really started blowing up, getting props from the likes of NaS as a true lyricist and I can't but agree. XV ain't a favorite of mine but John Connor kills his verses and Sean C & LV, who I've come to like more and more over the years, did a good job with the beats. Plus it was about goddamn time I posted some hot shit from less established cats because there are a few dope ones out there, you just gotta look - John Connor, Fashawn, Jay Electronica, Reks (i know he isn't technically new but still), Skyzoo (same), Side Effectz, that UK cat that I can't think of his name right now and a few others. This blog will still mostly focus on the legends and vets but every once in a while its nice to hear that the younger generation still makes good hip hop - at least some of them, though the games been polluted as hell by gay rappers like Rick Ross and Lil' B and whatnot. Found this over @ the Dope House so shouts for the link guys.
