Every month, we highlight some of our favorite rising artists in the Best New Artists feature, but we know that not everyone is interested in discovering a dozen new artists every month. For those who are: we appreciate you. For everyone else, kick rocks we tried to take a step back at the beginning of 2021 and round up some acts that we’re especially excited to watch this year.
These artists are all in different places in their career—some are still gearing up for a debut album, some are reaching a tipping point and on their way to mainstream success, and a handful are just a few singles in. The common thread is that all of these artists are looking like they’re about to level up in 2021. That could mean commercial domination, or it could mean realizing the full potential of their creative vision. Success means different things for different artists, and our goal is never to simply predict “the next big thing.”
Today we’d like to introduce you to A&T, an underground MC from Westchester, New York, an influential man in his neighborhood these days, thanks to his fast-rising status in the rap game over the past few years.
The 34-year-old rapper has been collectively putting his work together for a while and he feels he’s now ready to showcase his talent.
“My style of music is my sound with south feel beat, big party car vibes, fight club feel. A&T says. “I love music and my way of doing it I’m here and I’m different and Im me love or hate it.” Take a listen to some of his release below.
