The New New: 15 Boston Rappers You Should Know
Hometown: Roxbury, MA
Notable song: “Boston Lights” and “Throw My 3s”
Sounds like: A slick, synth-heavy take on the inspirational but emotive raps of Big Sean, J Cole or Drake.
Why you need to know him: With an ear for bleary eyed but anthemic beats, Moufy mixes the club-ready atmospherics of EDM with the lyrics and themes of a more world-weary and wise rapper. He’s not afraid to be earnest, but he manages to avoid the pitfalls of sad-sack cheesiness.
