Recently I’ve been hearing projects from some up-and-coming artists and I figured I would put some of their music up and let you be the judge of their skills. The new artists being introduced in this post are: Machine Gun Kelly, Johnny Polygon, and Childish Gambino.
Machine Gun Kelly – He has a pretty distinct voice and fast flow. Fun fact: He was the first rapper to ever win Amateur Night at the Apollo.
Machine Gun Kelly: | 100 Words and Running | Leave Me Alone ft. Rock City |
Also, check out a video of his HERE.
Johnny Polygon – Johnny is signed to DJ Green Lantern and his Future Green Entertainment label. Fun fact: He started off as a breakdancer/B-Boy before he got into rapping.
Johnny Polygon: | The Riot Song | Get Right ft. Amanda Diva |
Childish Gambino – A fellow Usain reader told me about this one, he has a lot of clever wordplay and a very distinct voice. Fun fact: Childish Gambino, real name Donald Glover, is a writer from 30 Rock and Mystery Team as well as a comedian from UCB.
Childish Gambino: | Yes | Starlight ft. DC Pierson and Amber Petty |
