3 Hip Hop artists that are making Hip Hop outside of America.
Hip Hop, more than America.
When we think of Hip Hop, we instantly think about its origins in the 1970’s from the South Bronx in New York City. As the years have passed, the genre has branched out to near enough every continent. This has now seen its fair share of adaptation.
From Boom Bap, Gangsta Rap, Trap, to Spoken Word and Cloud Rap, this ever-growing genre now finds itself in the era of ‘Soundcloud rappers’. We have seen a successful wave from this era like, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, Playboi Carti to more recently, Smokepurpp.
This is just the tip of the iceberg and we have searched across the pond for 3 key names you need to know about.
Killy / Toronto, Canada. 🇨🇦
With only 7 songs online to his name, Toronto rapper, Killy is an artist you should keep an eye on.
Raka / Aukland, New Zealand. 🇳🇿
Approximately 8,821 miles from the home of Hip Hop in South Bronx is Aukland, New Zealand, to where we discovered Raka. He has only 5 tracks to his name so far, we sense good things to come from the Shadowstar member.
Frank Casino / Johannesburg, South Africa. 🇿🇦
On a continent full of rich history and culture, we stumble across this Johannesburg artist, Frank Casino. Giving South Africa a new perspective to music, Frank Casino is making sure his Hip Hop will be heard amongst the Soulful House and Gqom music fans already love.
