Cam: Hailing from Harlem, King Z3US has established himself as a premiere talent representing the neighborhood thanks to a series of well received EPs, including 'The Chris Ferg Project,' and virally massive tracks like "21 Pounds" that boasts over 6 Million plays on YouTube alone. Although a cousin of A$AP Ferg, Z3US is managing to carve his own path in hip-hop with a unique perspective and powerful message.

M.S.: Canadian rapper "Devylle" is back with his new single "Want You" produced by Metcalfe. The song is a cut off of his EP which is expected to drop in 2018. Throughout his career he has worked with the likes of Jadakiss & Tory Lanez, now a more mature well rounded artist he doesnt want to be boxed in as being just an ordinary lyrical rapper and I want you is a pre cursor of expectations from the Mississauga native.
SS: Finland-based American rapper Pete Santos has dropped the first single from his upcoming album, "Paint the Picture" due next spring. Titled "Odd Nights", the song has an atmospheric trap-esque beat and takes on a topic not usually discussed in hip-hop songs, but not at all removed from hip-hop culture. Taking a cue from Lupe Fiasco's breakthrough hit, "Kick, Push", Pete talks raps about competition but modifies it with the extended metaphor of his experience in playing online video games.
RCPR: DMV standout Arcade Droyd is a jack of all trades. He's put in work behind the scenes as a producer and engineer, cultivating and fine-tuning his signature sound, the self-proclaimed "Mad-House" genre.
