Complex Magazine posted their list of 25 Best Rappers 25 And Under a few days ago, and since you could easily visit their website for the complete list, I have decided to share with you my top 5 picks. Enjoy!
5. The 16 year-old rookie Chief Keef, best known for his track “I Don’t Like,” which features Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music, is sitting in my number 5 spot.
4. The 24 year-old rapper Kendrick Lamar is taking the rap game head on with his tight flows and “on-point lyricism.” We’ll only be hearing more about him by the day as Lamar is currently working on his major label debut, Good Kid in a Mad City.
3. Meek Mill recently dropped Dreamchasers 2, which currently holds the spot as one of the hardest mixtapes of the year thus far. There is no doubt that the 25 year-old Philadelphia native is one the most highly-anticipated rappers in the game right now.
2. I’m sure it’s no surprise that the 23 year-old Detroit native Big Sean, signed to G.O.O.D Music/Def Jam, made the cut. This young man’s talent, confidence and swagger has him strapped to the rap game. I look forward to seeing what else he’s got once G.O.O.D. Music’s project Cruel Summer drops.
1. 25 year-old Brooklyn native, Theophilus London, has an undeniable talent and versatility when it comes to making music. He releases the unexpected and keeps the game fresh with tracks like “Humdrum Town” and “Big Spender (Feat. A$AP Rocky).”
