This week's On The Come Up features YS, a young and hungry emcee from Florida that puts music above all else, and is determined to be heard.
HotNewHipHop'sÂ On The Come UpÂ 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 to Orlando, Florida to meet YS, who had a musical upbringing and has since turned his love for music into a buzzing rap career. We'll give you his story, as well as let you hear some of his dopest music, plus tell you about his highly anticipated new projectÂ Streets Of Rage.
