The 12 Most Stylish New York Rappers 30 And Under

With the exception of Prince and Bob Dylan, Minnesota is seldom mentioned as a hotbed of musical talent. But quietly, the land of 10,000 lakes has boasted one of the most venerable duos in hip-hop in recent memory. Since the release of their first official album, Overcast!, in 1997, MC Sean "Slug" Daley and producer Anthony "Ant" Davis have built one of the most loyal followings in a genre where even the most skilled artists are not guaranteed lasting relevance.

Now, with their eight official full-length studio album, Southsiders dropping earlier this month, the Rhymesayers originators celebrated more than two decades of making music together. And while they will probably never be pop icons, the fact that they can sell out a show at The Palladium in Hollywood in less than a day is a true testament to the type of success every MC should strive for.

With their album making waves in the indie community, XXL spoke with Slug about longevity in the game, their single "Kanye West" and why he fears for his son wanting to be a musician. —Jake Rohn
