Meet the pride of Pompano Beach: Kodak Black.

Kodak Black is the best high-school rapper in the country. The 18-year-old from Pompano Beach, Florida also happens to be one of a few young artists on Drake's radar. As Earl Sweatshirt warned upon hearing of Drake's discovery of Florida's best kept secret, let's not give too much credit to the 6 God's discerning ears, as Kodak has already built a movement solely off his own credentials, with over 50 songs and/or videos with 6-digit hits on YouTube. 

He combines the loose, charisma-driven sound of '90s Dirty South rap with an ability to switch up flows, singing and rapping, that puts him in a class with today's versatile hitmakers. His unapologetically youthful personality is immediately likable, but he can also convey a shuddering sense of pain, perhaps never better than on the title track off his latest mixtape, Heart of the Projects. He couldn't have picked a better title, as his hustle flows through his veins, even if it's not always clear what he's fighting for.
