The New New: 15 Boston Rappers You Should Know


Hometown: Milton, MA
Twitter: @natural617
Notable song: “I Don’t Play” and “Monsters”
Sounds like: Introspective working class narratives coated in boom-bap production flourishes
Why you need to know him: While Natural doesn’t have a style that fits into a neat box or a scene—he’s not a frat-rapper and he’s not a socially conscious Macklemore-type—he does have songs that carefully mimic the kind of laid-back, comfort-food rap he grew up with. His recent 20 Something mixtape is a varied and eclectic collection of songs that displays an ear for soulful, melancholy beats and an eye for mundane, relatable details.
