heatseekers

  • Pecks is a 19-year-old MC from Orange County, CA who claims, "Music saved my life." His track "Dirtball," from the mixtape Above Common Knowledge, has been selected as one of this week's Heatseekers.
  • Grizzy is rising rapper out of the Detroit rap movement G4E. The rapper's latest track, "Tonight" comes off of the group's Nightlife Music EP, and exemplifies not only Griizzy's skill and charisma, but also his ear for production.
  • A.Y.S.O. is an up-and-coming rapper out of Louisiana, and his experimental brand of street rap has landed him among this week's top 4 heatseekers. "From The Hood" is a shape-shifting piece, as the rapper begins with a hard southern style, before the song drifts in and out of dreamy atmospherics.
  • The last of our four Heatseekers this weekend comes from an artist named Mr. Buhleedat, whose "Can't Control It" has been selected by our editors. Featuring Paco Trosclair, the track is an old school style New Orleans banger.
  • Marina, California's Corey Tinay has a delivery reminiscent of Chance The Rapper, incorporating subtle melody into each of his flows. Coreyy's California influences are more present however, replacing Chance's anxious rhythms with a more relaxed and smoothed over approach.
  • K1d has been making music since he was 15, and looks like things are starting to pay off for the Cinicinatti rapper.
  • Johnny Clouds is a young MC out of Lakewood, CA. His track "No Giving Up" has been selected as a Heatseeker this weekend.
  • Jamaican-born Canadian rapper BNJMN is one of our Heatseekers this weekend, riding on the strength of his "Empire Freestyle." Co-produced by BNJMN and Krs, his labelmate from their self-developed music label "88sound," this track is fire.
  • Senseii hails from Orange County, and while his music bears the smoked-out aspects of the region, the sunniness isn't quite as present. Instead the rapper delivers a pensive and cerebral take on hazy smoke jams, letting us in on his insecurities as well as his vices.
  • Up-and-coming Florida Rapper "YS" delivers another new banger today, unleashing his brand new single, "High With Me".
  • Will Jung (pronounced Young) is an MC from Virginia Beach whose new track "Gymnasium" has been selected as one of this weekend's four Heatseeker finalists. Stream and download it below.
  • Darryl Stokley, AKA D. Real, is a young artist born in Chicago and now living in Madison, Wisconsin. His track "Peer Pressure" has been selected as one of the four Heatseekers for this weekend -- take a listen below.
  • JayDee is a 19-year-old rapper from Enfield, CT. He's been rapping since he was 14 and is now ready to take his career to the next level.
  • Just to let y'all know, we've changed our Heatseekers format a little bit. There won't be any more voting, and instead we'll be selecting four artists to feature each weekend. Look out for four new Heatseekers tracks on the homepage every weekend. You can submit your music here.
  • The Flan is an up-and-coming rapper from Brampton, Ontario, who claims to be "currently doing any and everything" he sets his mind to. His new track-- which lands him among this week's top heatseekers --is a soul-sampling effort, with production coming from Lucidox.
  • Nile Ross has been busy since appearing in our heatseekers contest, releasing the dope track "2:12," performing at SXSW, preparing for shows with Ty Dolla $ign and Logic, and even managing to find time to work towards an Associates degree in Arts. He's just shared his latest track with us, the dark "Picasso."
