TripOne is a 18-year-old rapper, producer, and graphic designer from New Jersey. Last month he released a high-octane track entitled "Through the Dirt" produced by oOze and featuring a verse from Luciel Ball.
"Welcome to the Ghetto", the first single from Demar Jones's upcoming EP, is a grim portrait of Jones' hometown of Charlotte. All Jones ever wanted was a pair of new kicks, but he's "broke as a joke" from his day job winnings.
This is KDeezy's second time as a successful Heatseekers contestant, the first being last month's "Not 4 Play." There's still not too much known about him, except that he's from the Atlanta area, and that he's got a variety of different flows.
Meet 18-year old MC Joseph Indigo, who's record "'97" is our 2nd Heatseeker selection of the day. We were impressed by this lush beat and Indigo's presence on the microphone. "'97" is the the first single off of his upcoming EP, Piece of Mine.

Coming straight from Connecticut, Invision is a rapper, singer, and producer of all his own music. Here he displays some impressive lyrical wordplay on "Beast Mode," an ode to the almighty Marshawn Lynch.
H.B. is our second Heatseeker of the day out of Florida, more proof of how strong the region's rap game has been recently. The Jacksonville emcee comes through with a new single, "Get Mine," that's a reflective piece of grinding music.
After hearing Terock's new single, "To Whom It May Concern," we're surprised he hasn't been featured on the site before. He's got a decent fanbase in his hometown of Tampa, but he definitely deserves wider exposure.

Don Von hails from Virginia, a region rich in rap history, hosting the likes of Pharrell, Timbaland, Missy Elliott, Clipse and Trey Songz, but over the last few years, the star production has slowed a little.
Emoney is no stranger to Heatseekers. The leader of South Florida's Triple R crew continues to build upon his hard-hitting sound, and he's back with a new record, "Yak," that's almost too turnt up for the club.
Our latest Heatseeker is Bysen outta New Orleans who comes through with a hard-nosed track, "Day 1's." Bysen is a purveyor of that down South gangsta music, and we can tell he's been hard at work in the studio.
