You already know we’ve been graced with a mini-takeover from Jenesis magazine this week, with their Jenesis-curated playlist bumping across the site and Q&As with Creative Director Thomas Agnew and one of the chief contributors Kait Bee. They’ve been damn fine company. But it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t take a moment to shine a light back to Jenesis own place of genesis, the hotter than hot spot of Pittsburgh, and follow their lead in highlighting some of the city’s hottes young rap talent.
We know of course about Wiz, Chevy Woods and the whole Taylor Gang movement, including one of our favorite DJs right now Jayceeoh, And then there is Mac Miller of course, simply huge. But who is on the come up in The Burgh right now? Well no one better to let us know than Jenesis themselves as we look back on their recent feature highlighting the next big five. Special shout to the support from Stay Dirty Clothing, Acropolis Apparel and Timebomb, as well as ANTUKS for the dope filming of the following acapellas.
We won’t tell you our particular favorite, but rest assured that whoever you choose there is little doubt that you’ll be hearing a lot more from all five in the near future as the Burgh continues to blow.
