Don Cannon Rates Artists From XXLMag.com’s The Break
Three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), a new artist is featured on XXLMag.com’s The Break. An ideal destination for fans, artists, and industry members, The Break showcases up and coming talent, giving a brief introduction on the artist or group, and highlighting some of their standout music. Each month, industry insiders will team with XXL to rate and comment on the submissions.
Last month, Don Cannon checked out the section to see what the new talent had to offer. Below, check out his comments, and see which of these artists has what it takes.
Man.. Been following Dough for a minute. This dude got it, once he makes more noise on the underground south scene, the rest of the map is his!
I like this Kid Alot. He has great energy, dope personality, and seems super confident in his craft and ability to become the top rhyme spitter. i can tell he is heavily influence by rap battling and being from detroit thats one thing you’ll need in your repetiore to get out of the D!
This is a interesting artist. Qualmes has a great team behind him, just in observation of the videos, and concepts. Im not that big a fan of his skill, but he has the potential to make some noise. Just to touch on the interesting point, i was shocked that being from pasadena he could come off like this. Keep working youngn!
Gloss The Boss
Very Familiar with Gloss. She has be making a name in the a for a minute. i champion female rappers that work work to get heard, thru all the Nonsense that goes on in the game. the big butt and a smile thing is a thing of the pass with all these new female mc’s. Gloss has a lot going for herself. Wanna see more from her in the future.
Loving Nitty.. She Did Good On The BET cypher. Very Nostalgic and reminds me of mc lytes and monie loves that rap used to have. I think the game needs more of them. I Think she does a good job of capturing classic hip hop in 2011. Get Em Nitty.
Reema is Sick. For 16 Years Of Age WOWWWW!! I would like to see her get better hooks and beats, and she is outta here!! Nuff Said
Moufy Is a ill storyteller, Videos And Content Super Dope. I can’t quite get into his voice, but lyrics are cool, and i like how he repped his city in boston lights, thats good. Hope this guy’s dream comes true.
Very Familiar With Paypa. His confidence is out of this world. Swag is on point. Knows alot about the chi town history. Dude got some lines. He Is gonna be one of them ones soon!
