  • Jiggy Josh - The Genesis
    This emcee is just sixteen years old, but his flow is as relaxed and clever as if he'd been in front of the mic for years. His production brings to mind DJ Premier, which is never a bad thing. One to follow.

    My Family - RD, Johnny Tsunamii, Nik
    by [RD]
    Rapid is a beatmaker and emcee who still seems to be finding his feet as an artist -- but his efforts are already engaging. We'd dig "My Family" even without the extremely sweet home videos, and you'll find his humorous, rapid-fire "Fandango" later in the mix.

    Elzhi - It Ain't Hard To Tell (Official Video)
    This veteran Detroit emcee was invited to join Slum Village in 2001 after J Dilla brought him to the group's attention. His solo work has drawn a huge following, and this song, from his latest mixtape "Elmatic," pays homage to Nas' seminal 1994 album "Illmatic."

    "Missin' You Like Crazy" - Us The Duo
    A young North Carolina-based singer-songwriter, Michael Alvarado has racked up quite a following on YouTube, and it's not hard to hear why: his songs are the aural equivalent of a walk in the park on a sunny day.

    How Could Life Get Any Better - Nik Day
    by Nik Day
    Nik Day compares himself to Michael Buble and Jason Mraz, and he's not far off. We might add Harry Connick to the list: Day's game is jazzy, piano-based pop, and he's got the charisma to pull it off.

    Fandango - [RD]
    by [RD]
    Rapid's second video in the mix is a playful foray that brings to mind Slim Shady-era Eminem.

    RSonic - Hey Cutie (VISION 7-4-12)
    The great thing about RSonic (who's a Marine in his other life) is that you know he'll be a total gentleman when he takes you for a ride in his hoopty. We love the bluesy harmonica sample in this song; this guy is smooth.
