9 Rappers Bringing New York Back

Papoose and the Summer Jam fiasco really painted New York rap in a bad light over the weekend.

But have no fear, Big Apple-ians, these nine MCs are keeping you relevant. You have a bright future ahead of you.

Tyler The Creator – He’s a crazy a$$ leader of Odd Future. But he has a movement behind him.

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.

Troy Ave – He’s like an up North Jeezy and his music bangs. Point blank.

A$AP Rocky – You have to know he’s one of the kings of the city now. If not, you have an effin problem.

French Montana – His music sucks dingleberries but he’s popular so there’s that.
