    Most Creative Rappers: The New Class Of Emcees

    In recent years there has been a movement of emcees who have a new approach to rap. Many are products of the internet, and they differ from past generations in that their style is not dictated by region, but rather their own creation. These rappers are changing the game by throwing it some curve balls, their creativity being an unpredictable force. These newcomers have a tendency to create their own movements, rather than arrive as part of a lineage, and incorporate a certain independent aesthetic when it comes to elements of the industry like videos, artwork and production.

    Artists who performed at the Grammys or (better yet?) won an award, gained more than just the honor—they gained new fans, perhaps reached a wider audience than usual and thus increased sales of their music. Over the past week, overall album sales increased 17%, which is due in part to the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, but also, Valentine’s Day-- lest we forget the extremely commercialized holiday. There were definitely some urban artists who benefited from

    All eyes were on the world of music as it was the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, which many artists used as a platform to push new material and make announcements of upcoming projects.   As far as the world of hip hop and R&B went, there were no real notable new releases.  The biggest new project to drop was Joe Budden’s, who, following the success of his A Loose Quarter mixtape, was looking to capitalize with a studio project.  Unfortunately for Joey, his fans seem to be enthusiastic about downloading his free projects, but not crazy

    Kendrick Lamar was right, “real people want real music, the Jig Is Up.” With A$AP Rocky’s album leaking incredibly early, the very solid debut studio effort from the Harlemite continues to sell.  All the albums making our Charts this week are featured on some kind of “Best Of” list, and as far as Hip Hop/R&B sales are concerned, fans are purchasing quality projects from artists.

    This week we see a new chart-topper arrive, the New York rapper who takes on that southern style, A$AP Rocky. Rocky's debut album, Long.Live.A$AP did surprisingly well. We see albums leak all the time-- usually it's just a week prior to the album's release though. In Rocky's case, we saw it leak a month early. However, Rocky continued doing promo and dropping singles, not worrying about the album leak or bumping his release date up. And it worked out well for him, he still sold a large amount of copies, and landed #1 on the Billboard 200.
