Asher Roth is the future.

Charles Hamilton is the future.

Mickey Factz is the future.

Music will be healed once these guys take over and DJ Khaled is no longer in the game.

@armand – Lol. Yeah man. Gotta be comfortable! haha.

@Aura – Couldn’t agree more. They each have their own distinct style and are very concise with their individual approach.

@roger – Amen!

@The IPS – He’s got a lot more in store; I’m sure you’ll end up enjoying.

@Sara – Definitely check out Mickey Factz. He’s a great emcee. Post a comment after you listen to him and let me know what you think!

@nikki – Lol! I didn’t notice, but now that you mention it, I see what you’re saying lol.

@JAmes – They’re definitely the future!. Lol@ your Khaled comment.

I’ve heard of them all, but I haven’t listened enough to really judge.

What I have noticed is that they get an “A” for effort in regards to their online marketing. I’ve seen more buzz about them the most major label folks.

They are definitely pimping the Web 2.0 thing.

This list is is pretty accurate but this is my list in this order of who has next!!!

Asher Roth
Kid Cudi
Jay Who?
Charles Hamilton
Cool Kids

Wale’s “Mixtape About Nothing” is the album of the year, Jay Who? has an amazing album called “Where Da Sidewalk Ends” and That Kid Cudi mixtape “A Kid name Cudi” is craaaazy!!! Asher Roth has potential to be a force and Charles Hamilton is really niiice.
