whosnext Top 10 Chicago Rappers Ready To Make The Chance Leap

Chicago hip-hop has been putting itself on the map for a few years now. Every year there would be notices that the city was brimming with talent ready to take over. And, for a while, it sort of would. Acts like the Cool Kids, Rockie Fresh, King Louie, and Tree would grab a bit of national buzz, enough to validate those claims of coming Chicago dominance, but not enough to thin out the deep talent pool. 2013, though, saw a few Chicago heavy hitters reaching insane new heights, further solidifying that projected dominance.

Three rappers in particular have provided blueprints and left space for the next crop to grow. Chief Keef largely did the latter after his big deal in 2012, spending much of the year releasing mediocre tapes, having run-ins with the law, and plotting his next big step. Chance the Rapper, meanwhile, skyrocketed from promising dude with a prominent high school suspension to a feature on a Justin Bieber track, among other star moves. Kanye… Well, Kanye got to a point where it’s hard to say that he’s actually a human being that is from a place.

So, if you’re ready to see what names might be filling those big shoes this time next year, look no further. We’ve assembled a list of 10 up-and-coming Chicago rappers that haven’t gotten to that level yet, but have the potential to break into the national consciousness. It’s time we stop talking about Chicago taking over the rap world and just let you know who comprises the next wave.

I’m not sure how Mick Jenkins didn’t make this list, he’s a better rapper than everyone on this list (with the possible exception of Vic Mensa)

task, specifically for the newbie Android developers.
When done, you can share it as a video in ‘Facebook’ (you’ll be amazed how vibrant the colors appear in the ‘Paper’ app.
Android energy applications include historical past management apps, security apps, speed examination,
drop box plus much more.
