Buckchild. Unsigned Artist of the Week.

Our Unsigned Artist of the Week is Buckchild from Berkeley, California. Buckchild brings his pop culture heavy production and slick lyrics together to bring a sound that is becoming all to popular in Hip Hop music. 

Lyrically, he flows in a grand show of metaphors and pop references that make it a thrill to listen to rap. However, his music doesn't venture out too far to alienate listeners, instead it pulls listeners in to get more involved with his music

Coupled with production that matches his surprising lyrical style, Buckchild is positioning himself to be an instant hit in the near future.

My Favorites from Buckchild, "Boom Skys" and "Digital Jam"

Gabrielle White. Unsigned Artist of the Week.

Our Unsigned Artist of the Week is Gabrielle White from New York, New York. Gabrielle White's strong yet smooth and sultry voice is her most powerful asset along with her overall style and beauty. Being at one time incapable of being able to sing, she has a story that is unique to her struggle as an artist and keeps her well focused on her goal.

Musically, she uses her voice in a variety of ways going from more uptempo high energy vocals to her signature smooth and passion filled voice. With small peaks at what she can achieve with her own original beat production in a couple of songs from her mixtape Gift of Gab, she displays both class and talent to take her career to another level.

My Favorites from Gabrielle White are, "You'll be the One" and "Secret"

Co$$. Unsigned Artist of the Week.

Our Unsigned Artist of the Week is Co$$ from Los Angeles, California. Co$$ brings his gritty style to a rap world that sometimes forgets where it came from. With the classic bounce that the west is known for, he incorporates his clever wordplay and punchlines to complete a sound that screams a resurgence in west coast customs.

Co$$ however shouldn't be labeled as just a rapper with good punchlines because he clearly has the ability to switch his flow at a moments notice. His stories are defined by a true life depiction of the streets and a self analysis of how it has molded him and continues to do so. 

He is a true testament to the west coast sound and just as refreshing as the weather of the city he represents for.

My favorites from Co$$ are "Save Them" and "Angelic"

JusThoughtZ. Unsigned Artist of the Week.

Our Unsigned Artist of the Week is JusThoughtZ from Atlanta, Georgia. JusThoughtZ uses his lyrical abilities to bring a sound that can be described as an Alternative Christian Hip Hop that far surpasses anything that more mainstream Christian Hip Hop has ever been able to produce. His method  isn't to beat Christianity into the heads of his listeners but instead to subtly and cleverly weave it into his music. Along with his message, he flows smoothly over his tracks and brings a few "Oohs" with his clever wordplay.

JusThoughtZ also differentiates himself from the genre by choosing to opt for more Hip Hop and Rock beats instead of the more Gospel heavy sound of Christian Hip Hop today. A unique artist in every sense of the word, it is good to hear that there are upstart artists who are not scared to use there talents to be different and express what they believe in.

My Favorites from JusThoughtZ are "FUTR", "EveryDay" and "Us"
