9 Rappers Bringing New York BackPapoose and the Summer Jam fiasco really painted New York rap in a bad light over the weekend. While rappers from the West Coast were killing the stage, Papoose became a trending topic for his foolishness and French Montana stunk up the joint and got his set cut short. But have no fear, Big Apple-ians, these nine MCs are keeping you relevant. You have a bright future ahead of you.
Denzil Porter - He's like a young Kanye West. Expect greatness from him soon. Roc Marciano - He's grimy, old-school rap that will make any Timb-wearer want to pay attention.
Action Bronson - He's the wildest MC in the game and one of the most talented. He's like e second coming of Ghostface Killah.
Smoke DZA - He's a wrestling fan and swagged out MC you'll love immediately. Joey Bada$$ - This teenager may sign with The Roc soon...but until then just enjoy him killing beats.
