Best New Hip-Hop

Flanked by singles Who Dat Boy and Boredom, Ain't Got Time is one of the offerings off Tyler The Creator's fourth album, released earlier this week. We Are The Guard catches up with the styling and profiling artist from Ladera Heights.
6LACK makes moody R&B that I can flex and dance to while still looking morose and beautiful. That Far, 6LACK’s new single, reads like a confidence-booster; an anti-hater anthem.
Disjointed instrumentals and autotuned rhymes. This is the calling card of Houston-based rapper Wolfe de MCHLS performed to perfection in his newest track, Supreme. We Are The Guard gets on the level to this Lo-Fi hip-hop doozy.
Staten Island’s Lou The Human emphasizes the actual human experience with Slim Buddha. Our mixtapes have been running a little dry on actual bangers, speaking to the paranoia and terminal insecurity of these times. Lou The Human is the rapper we need, for these times.
It has only been a year since Aminé debuted on the Billboard charts with his track, Caroline. REDMERCEDES is already primed for the same mainstream success, but with the remix version gathering the collective talents of AJ Tracey and Missy Elliot, it is guaranteed to be an automatic chart-topper.
From the ever-so-quirky Atlanta hip hop label, Awful Records, comes Lord Narf, an edgy, tenacious rapper whose spunk matches her sharp allure. Her new track, Rent, features production from Meltycanon and is a slinky hip hop tune.
We Are The Guard takes a listen to Gatekeeper, a dark journey into the mind of rising singer/rapper, Jessie Reyez. This one isn’t for the weak of heart, so put the kids to bed and get ready to be shocked.
