HeatWAVES: MaraMGT's Top 15 Up and Coming Artist
Updated: Mar 29, 2020
We all have our favorites but mine in particular possess 4 major key components, DRIVE, DIVERSITY, MASTERING OF SKILL, and most importantly GROWTH. The artist that I'm going to list each bring something different to the table in their own unique way and certainly have potential to make it in the industry. I will be giving you the inside scoop on these artist, why I chose them as my personal favs, and sneak peeks in future projects. Enjoy!
P.S. These are not ranked in any order and does not by any means diminish one's talents.
Leland650 and his music is definitely leading the SoundCloud industry on a run for their money. With hits such as Sensei and one of my personal favorites, 10PC freestyle, the artist's spot in stardom is inevitable. Whether it's his delivery on a StoopidXool beat or his lyrical bars on a RichGates or Orcery beat, 650 never fails to amaze me. Unlike most, Leland doesn't confine himself into one style and whichever one he chooses he always sets a new standard. I have nothing but high hopes and a speaker ready to be blasted while awaiting 650's next project.

With the recent release of his long awaited track, Bussin featuring Guapo Cobe, Don600 has taken his audience by storm yet again. Receiving intense feedback and a uproar for more from from his fans it is apparent that Don is an asset. Never missing, only hits Don has skated his way onto my top up and coming list.

3. Tre Cartier
Beating the odds and tearing down "mumble rap" stereotypes one sound at a time, Tre Cartier has officially became a game changer in my book. With some of the dopest tracks out such as Guaphardt, Hurt My Chest, or Too Rude featuring popular underground artist, Skip Gocar, Cartier has grown in the underground industry within the matter of months. Whether he's cutting up tracks with LoftyBoyz or many other artist the artist never fails to deliver. Being self-driven and constantly being in the stu is showing through Cartier's work tremendously.

4. Lil Summrs
From Louisiana, Lil Summrs is blasting his way onto my top 15 list for various reasons, with his recent drop of All Summr being one of many. The uproar that came with the release proves that Lil Summrs is indeed THE wave, not just this summer but or many more to come. Mastering melodic beats and his sound I have became a fan within the past few months, the artist is definitely worth all of the clout that has came his way.

Whether geeking on tracks solo or teaming up with his confidants, Guapo Cobe or Rock Guala, Marney has a knack for creating bangers. Tracks such as Geeking, Yeauh, and Abundance are a few of many that have his followers going wild. The artist is coming from the west and representing the new wave well. Along with his fans, I'm Spaced Out with Marney.

With his recent release, Let Up, reaching nearly 2.5k views within two days and his feature on Don600's Bussin, finally making way, GuapoCobe certainly has a lot to brag about. And that's not the only thing heating up the summer, word of performances has been making way onto the streets of CA. With a strong fan base and inner circle, Cobe is exceeding limits and coming out on top one way or the other. This artist certainly has the summer on SMASH and I don't think any of us are prepared for it.

7. Diceman Dizzle
GAHDAMN DIZZLE! Since the artist put his foot in the door along with his comrades, 2500 LoftyBoyz, it's been all gas and restless nights. The artist has dabbed into a few other musical realms, however rapping reigns supreme for Diceman and it has undoubtedly gained him some rank. As a prospect in the Coast 2 Coast Atlanta Showcase and the drop of his Unexpected EP earlier this week, it's safe to say that Diceman is living example of hardwork pays off.

Oxykodone is taking Jugg music to a different caliber with hits such as Big Packs Freestyle produced my MexikoDro and No Trust produced by StoopidXool. The artist is indisputably playing the role of THE MVP.

9. Yung Ghost
Yung Ghost bossed all the way up on his track, Death Note. Not to mention his verse on Straight Drop which was the first released track off of the DeadBwoyRecords project. Feature or track, Ghost is in his bag each and every time.

10. Cash Curt
As a fresh addition to the DeadBwoy Mob, Cash Curt isn't hesitant to show everyone what he's bringing to the table. Already being an established artist prior to joining the record label, Curt taps into a newer fan base after his appearance on DBR's 11 track, long awaited project self-titled, DeadBwoyRecords. One of my personal favorites, On Go, is one of many reasons why I chose to add Cash Curt onto my Top 15.

11. Actavi$ Al$ton
As seen before on MaraMGT, Actavi$ makes his way back on the site for a second go round. This past month has been rather eventful for Al$ton with his cosign from Skip Gocar on Free Nascar5 and Bank featuring Don600 which was released earlier this week. After his grind from self promotion to consistent drops, Actavi$ Al$ton is naturally turning heads.

12. BVSED JUSTIN
Recognize him? Well the multi talented artist is back and this time to show off his lyrical skills. The latest Debut of the HeartBreak Heaven EP and its soothing sounds starting with the FUCK LOVE Interlude to the Outro is just a preview of what the Jamaican artist is bringing to the table. As the New Wave of Jamaica and more to come Bvsed Justin is someone you outta know.

With Shine reaching over 3,000 views on Soundclound and Cannot Lo$e now available on Spotify and on for purchase on iTunes, Guala certainly has a few things under his belt to brag about. Guala is currently working on a feature with another SoundCloud Commodity, Ca$hRiah, the two sounds intertwine is something that you should definitely have an eye out for. Guala never fails to have me on the look for creative, ear drumming projects.

14. Stace Kruegar
From Gucci featuring Yung 666 to Broly produced by Rich Gates, Stace Krueger is dripping sauce down feeds in a major way and it's apparent that he's only going up from here. Never failing to rep DBR or 3500, Krueger is putting his team on. It's clear that Stace Krueger isn't letting up off of necks anytime soon. I just have one question... Who these rappers testing?

15. Cash Charlie
With a distinct sound and flow Cash Charlie has raged his way onto MaraMGT's Top 15 list. With dope sounds such as Love Kash and his newest feature, On My Own, which just made way to the media yesterday from DeadBwoyRecords latest project. Be prepared to see more from our prospect.
