We asked a number of accomplished and established Hip-Hop artists in Australia what young rappers they think will make an impact in 2018 for our ‘Who’s Next’ series, today, Australian Hip-Hop mainstay Smizzy gives us his picks.
Smizzy: “Cooper‘s EP is ready. It’s produced by Matik (Seth Sentry, Drapht) and One Above (Hilltop Hoods, Bliss n Eso) and his pen game is next level good!”
Smizzy: “Joey Maker has been working hard on his craft for some time. I’ve heard he’s got some incredible things planed for 2018 which I’m really looking to check out.”
Smizzy: “Clue is starting to release some really interesting content which makes me laugh every time I see it. This man’s got an acute eye for comedy and is a brilliant performer and also actor in his video clips. I could see Clue being titled the Lil Dicky of Australia in not too long.”
Smizzy: “Johniepee can just about do anything flow wise in rap. He’s got a smooth as fu*k voice and can sing too. He’s charismatic and understands social media pretty well. He’s also driven and hard working but most importantly, he’s DOPE.”
