Lauren Hill would be taking notes, NO CAP!!! Her EP "Fruit & Libation" dropped this summer, with tracks like "Masquerade" , "DNA" & "Soul 4 Sale", telling the story of a woman sure of herself and of her purpose.

#1 Brittney Carter
TALENT, SKILL, PERSEVERANCE, VULNERABILITY...HOPE.. That is the sound of Brittney Carter. Hailing from Chicago's Southside Brittney gives us OUR Modern Day Lauren, with sprinkles of Jcole and Kendrick. Reinventing the "conscious rapper" persona, Brittney's delivery is so soothing it's like therapy. The messages engulfed in songs like "Back then", "Supplicate", "Cold As Us" and the anthem "Prove em Wrong" show how lyrically BLESSED the young GOAT is. Brittney effortlessly spits over beats making them HERS AND ONLY HERS, painting motion pictures so vivid you can't help but FEEL THAT SHIT!! A "Black Farmer" she embodies the notion of harvesting and planting seeds of fruition, referring to her music, her life and the lessons she's endured. Her poetic approach and intellect is so captivating, she is the Professor schooling everybody. Throughout time we are blessed with a prophet like persona in music, someone who can lead and influence and inspire consistently & genuinely. The EP "As I am" is another reminder that there is only 1 Brittney Carter and she is in fact the P R O P H E T .
