HotNewHipHop's On The Come Up series profiles rising stars in the rap game that show strong promise and the will to succeed. Most of the time, they're new to the site but deserve some shine. We will profile artists and producers ranging from those in the deep underground to artists just about to bubble up into the mainstream that you may have missed. You'll be able to check out some of their best work, and we'll break down what makes them great by category. Throughout the article, you'll find links to hear more from the artist or producer, and you can leave suggestions in the comments letting us know who we should profile in the future.

This week we head down to Baltimore to learn a little more about YG Addie, better known as A$AP Ant, one of the most prominent rappers in the DMV and a key member of the A$AP Mob. Yeah, we know, he's a little higher profile than the average artist featured in OTCU, but in a mob as deep and talented as A$AP, we just want to make sure you didn't miss out on one of the dopest young MCs in the game.
