Reeves' List: 2012 [A Recap]

humbleflex:

Okay, for any who haven’t been following, throughout the past 2 weeks I’ve been intermittently posting small write-ups on rappers who I believe to be forward thinking, original, and true to the hip-hop genre.. The 10 I chose stand out among their peers for several reasons. The only real criteria I…

I’d say 8/10 of these guys are pretty huge now. LOL.

Flatbush Zombies - from (assuming) Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY. Heavily supported by Lifestyle and Music Blog “The Madbury Club”. Cosigned by Childish Gambino and Lana Del Rey.
Admittedly, I know only a little about the burgeoning rap group, Flatbush Zombies, and I think that’s what they intended. With their debut music video “Thug Waffle” dropping out of the blue on January 4th, they’ve been able to churn up conversation on blogs like Illroots and have even showed up on Complex and Fader’s websites. As for what they sound like, one half of the duo, Meechy Darco, draws comparisons to a young ODB. The other half of the group, Zombie Juice (or Barnacle Bartholomew as he goes by on twitter) looks like, and I’m quoting a youtube comment, “Chris Brown with a beard…” but raps a million times better. If this is what the new New York rap scene is like, then I like where it’s going. A lot. More rappers need to be as original (if not weird) as these guys. They just need to put out more than 5 or so songs.

Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire - From Brooklyn, NY. "The new Biggie," according to fellow rapper Danny Brown.
eXquire makes my list simply for his technical flow and raw personality. His style reminds me of something from the mid-90’s, flow-wise, but his lyrics don’t reflect it. The music is the embodiment of how he lives his life. He lives in the projects, he drinks on the regular, he chills with the dudes he came up with, and he has a lot of sex. That’s it, and he raps about it. If you need some proof,  go ahead and youtube his viral hit “Huzzah”. What makes him different though is that he has little to no regard for how he is perceived. Look at his name, it contains a blatant expletive. If that isn’t a big F-U to the industry (no way he’s getting on the radio, with that name at least) I don’t know what is. I started listening to him sometime this past July. After passing up his tape “Lost in Translation" the first time I heard it, after a few more listens I got hooked on the lo-fi gully sound. More rappers need to take his approach and just make what they want; that’s why I’ll be sticking around for his next tape.

Levi Watson - From Atlanta, Georgia. Sounds absolutely nothing like the typical Atlanta rapper (and that’s a good thing).
Honestly, I don’t really remember how I came across this budding ATL rapper. What I do know however, is that it was roughly a year ago when I started following him on twitter, and that I caught him fresh off his release of his, “Before The Future EP" (which is an excellent listen might I add). Since then I’ve seen the most rapid progress of any obscure rapper I’ve ever followed. Every new song he drops builds on his signature laid back flow and his song writing skill is improving. He drops references to obscure animes and retro videogames like it’s nobody’s business, and he does it with style. This is especially apparent in his song "West" off of his upcoming "[Neptune] EP" which drops March 30th. What’s really remarkable though is that there isn’t anyone I can really compare him to: he legit has his own lane. Plus with the connections he’s made with Chuuwee and Big Boi’s newest producer Dijon Stylez, Levi is going places, and soon. Definitely one of my favorite artists coming up right now. DON’T SLEEP!

Hoodie Allen - A Jewish kid from Long Island, New York. UPenn graduate. Former employee at google now turned full time rapper.
What I really like about Hoodie Allen (and what I think more artists need to start doing) is that he actually takes the time out of his day to respond to his fans, and it’s clear they appreciate it. That’s one of the reasons why my younger brother, Trevor, likes him so much and why he’s been able to grow such a strong grass roots fan base. I’m not going to sit here and act like I discovered Hoodie on my own, most of that credit goes straight to Trev. I mean, I’d heard the name around, but I have a really bad habit of taking forever to actually check into artists. I’m glad I finally did though because he’s pretty damn talented. Hoodie’s all about positivity and fun, and his music reflects that. Two tracks that really stand out are “I Am Not a Robot”  and “The Chase is On,"both of which have earned him more than a million YouTube hits per video. I’ve been listening to his most recent mixtape, "Leap Year" for a while now but he also has another mixtape, "Pep Rally”, and a few other older mixtapes/EP’s as well. Hoodie’s got a lot going for him, and with his upcoming EP “All American" slated for an April 10th release, 2012 might just be the year Hoodie Allen rises to mainstream stardom.

Chuuwee - from Sacramento, California. Leader of rap collective T.U.S., Work ethic that rivals Curren$y’s. Newly signed to Amalgam Digital.
Chuuwee’s been on my radar for a while now ever since I first saw a 2dopeboyz post of his project, Hot n Ready w/ Lee Bannon. He’s STAYED on my radar by putting out consistent, ever progressive works. Now, when I say his work ethic rivals that of Curren$y’s, that’s not to be taken lightly. In just the past 5 months alone, Chuuwee has released 3 full length projects, all with 12 + tracks each, along with numerous guest features and singles. To put this further into perspective; according to his bandcamp, he has 7 mixtapes/projects…and that’s only since 2010. What sets him apart from his peers however is his impeccable ear for beats and the attention he puts towards his lyrics. When one listens to Chuuwee, it’s almost as if you’re back in the early 90’s golden era of hip-hop. His lyrics are real and he pays great attention to his rhyming technique, switching up his flow time and time again. Combine that with an energetic voice and a unique rhyme style, you truly get a one of a kind artist. Hopefully he gets the push and shine he deserves now that he’s signed to Amalgam. Regardless though, for fans of golden-era rap (or rap in general), don’t dismiss Chuuwee. He’s one of few emcees still emceeing.

G-Eazy - Born and raised in both Oakland and Berkeley California. Graduated from Loyola University in New Orleans. Produced, mixes, and writes all of his music.
Now, I can’t take credit for stumbling across G-Eazy on my own; my younger brother Trevor actually showed me him while I was home on Winter Break. He played a few tracks off of his most recent mixtape “Endless Summer" and after a few listens I became a pretty big fan. His music has a distinct mid 50’s early 60’s vibe to it, largely due to his sampling choices. His song Runaround Sue for example (which samples the 1960 #1 hit of the same name) is about G being caught up in a relationship with a cheating girlfriend. The music video also helps to show off the retro vibe as well. His rapping voice is ghostly” (to quote Interview Mag) which is refreshing in an era of rap where everyone tries to sound like what’s hot at the moment. I’m really excited to see what he does in 2012, especially now considering he stated that he no longer want to sample and intends to create all original beats.

Childish Gambino - Successful Comedian, Actor, and Rapper. From Stone Mountain, Georgia currently residing in L.A. Independently released Camp on November 15, 2011.
If you don’t know who Childish Gambino is, you did either one of two things. Either you slept through the latter half of 2011, or you don’t have an internet connection because Donald Glover/Childish Gambino has been talked about on nearly every credible music blog. After releasing several mixtapes (see “I Am Not a Rapper" 1 and 2, and "Culdesac”) and a well received EP (merely titled “EP”) which featured the acclaimed single “Freaks n Geeks”, C.G. secured himself a place in the blogosphere and a decently sized fan-base. He’s a fan of indie music which is very noticeable in his I Am Not a Rapper tapes, and his lyrics often reference the relatively obscure bands he listens to. Also, Gambino’s rapping style has been compared to that of Lil Waynes (wait, that’s not necessarily a bad thing) in that he uses many metaphors in his rhymes. However, his innate sense of humor bleeds into his raps which makes him that much more enjoyable to listen to. “Made the beat and murdered it, Casey Anthony,” is just one of the stand-out lines in his song “Bonfire,” a fan favorite off of “Camp”. He can also be introspective with his lyrics, which he is in “Heartbeat" in which he talks about an on and off girlfriend. By expertly combining energetic raps, humorous metaphors, and a taste for indie/"hipster" (self-labeled) music, Donald has made his way ahead of the pack and found himself a place in the hip-hop community. Personally, I cannot wait for the new mixtape he announced in January… and I’m certainly not the only one.

Danny Brown - From Detroit, Michigan. Signed to Fools Gold records. Self proclaimed “Adderol Admiral. “50 cent didn’t sign him to G-Unit because of the clothes he wears… (dumbest move ever.)
I first started listening to Danny Brown in September when I decided to give his most recent (and critically acclaimed) project “XXX" a listen. It took a little getting used to, but now I’m addicted to his music. The project is told in two halves. In the first, Brown raps in a strung out, drugged up high pitched voice that communicates the intensity of the life he lives. The second half is the come down (he raps normally) where he reflects on his past and tells tales of daily life in Detroit’s hoods. Needless to say, Danny Brown is one of indie rap’s most intriguing prospects, and I’m not alone in that opinion. With cosigns from tastemaker magazines/blogs The Fader and Pitchfork, and a spot on the coveted (yet admittedly faltering) XXL Freshman List, Danny’s got enough media exposure to keep the average music blogger up to date on his exploits for quite some time. The real difficulty he faces however, is how, if ever, he plans on crossing-over into the mainstream limelight. However, I wouln’t be remotely surprised if he never did (listen to his diss to the recording industry aka “Radio Song" on "XXX" and you’ll know what I’m talking about.) That’s one of the things that draws me to Danny Brown’s music though. He actually cares about the MUSIC, not just success and buzz (which ironically earned him the buzz he has now). Oh, and to repeat myself, there’s the fact that he’s got the most ridiculous (and hypnotic) rap voices I’ve heard in the past two years. In fact, it’s his high pitched voice that initially made me notice him. Trust me on this one, there’s a reason Danny Brown is the only member from the XXL Freshman list this year that made it onto my list. If you can get past the crazy hair and style (unlike 50), then you’ll be introducing yourself to one of the most unique and captivating rappers to come out of the woodwork in recent memory.
Go buy “The Hybrid" and "XXX" on iTunes.

ScHoolboy-Q - From Compton, California. Former(?) Hoover Crip. Currently signed to indie powerhouse imprint TDE. 1/4 of Black Hippy Crew. Life for him “is just weed & brews.”
I  first heard about ScHoolboy-Q roughly a year ago when I first heard Black Hippy's posse cut “Zip That Chop That," which was probably the best introduction I could of had to him; the song serves to display each rapper’s persona and place in the crew. Fast forward to now, I have no fucking clue how ScHoolboy-Q hasn’t been an XXL freshman yet. With strong releases like "Setbacks" (circa ‘09) and his most recent project "Habits and Contradictions" redefining Cali gangsta-rap and a unique, high energy flow (along with a slew of obligatory drug and violence references), Q has all the necessary components to blow up. Factor in the fact that he’s linked into the strongest budding hip-hop crew in recent memory, AND a close friendship w/ XXL alumni Kendrick Lamar, he pretty much has all the connections to take his career to the next level. To top it all off, thanks to a terrific feature on A$AP Rocky's “Brand New Guy”, Q found himself in the spotlight alongside the rising star on one of “LiveLoveA$AP's” stand out cuts. Like the majority of my list, Q’s sound is hard to describe, mostly because of how versatile he is. He has slow chill songs such as “iBETiGOTSUMWEED" and aggressive street anthems such as the A$AP Ty Beats produced “Nightmare on Figg St." Perhaps it’s best to use some of his own lyrics, "Biggie and Nas put they ass in a blender, sprinkle some 50 and came out this N****!" … Here’s hoping that "Figg Get Da Money" in 2012 because ScHoolboy-Q certainly deserves it.

Action Bronson - from Queens, NY. Culinary School Drop Out. Amazing Rapper.
Looking like a white Rick Ross yet sounding absolutely nothing like him, Action Bronson should be on everyone’s to watch list. I started listening to him fairly late in the year. He put out his project “Dr. Lecter" last June and I finally got around to listening to it over Winter-Break. After hearing it, I got to googling and found out he had a very busy year feature wise, turning up on songs by Asher Roth, Smoke Dza, and even Ghostface Killah (whom his flow and voice is VERY often compared to.) So he’s been building a pretty good buzz. The best way I can summarize what he raps about would be a comical chef with a violent streak that smokes a lot. Most of his raps are pretty damn funny though, which makes him stand-out in my opinion. Give him a listen. Check out "Dr. Lecter" and "Well Done" on itunes (the latter of which is exclusively produced by Statik-Selektah).
