The Top 10 New School MCs



Patience paid of big time for Louis Vuitton Sean. After years of being Kanye West’s virtual understudy, Big Sean stepped into the limelight and seized his moment. Sean first peaked the Hip-Hop world’s interest with “Get’Cha Some” from Yeezy’s Can’t Tell Me Nothing mixtape in 2007. A gang of the Detroit native’s own music, via his Finally Famous mixtape series, proved that the talent was there, and him letting anyone who listened know he invented the Supa Dupa Flow only reinforced his potential. But questions still lurked about him being able to deliver on the major label stage.


Sean’s debut, Finally Famous, featured production from No ID and spawned a bunch of hits like “My Last,” featuring Chris Brown, “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay,” featuring Kanye West, and “Dance (@$$).” The Def Jam rapper proved he was no one’s sidekick, even landing on the cover of The Source Magazine.

    First off, I didn’t listen to all of the artists, but I’m left unfulfilled. When I see a headline about the top ten new school  MC’s, I’m thinkin’ mother f*ckers killin’ it with a fire inside. Spittin venom and knowledge and edification to the youth.  The two I listened to, were rehashes of the past, which really isn’t new school. On top of that, it was boring as hell because they weren’t even as good as the ones past that they want to emulate. I aint here to hate. I give props to anyone makin’ moves and trying, but I guess I expected a little more creativity and individuality.
    You can do your own thing and it doesn’t have to sound like every other rapper from the past 2o years. Lets try and turn this sh*t upside down. DJ’s and Producers are in need of some mushrooms as well. Maybe that will spark some creative genius. Peace
