Each week, Nicolas-Tyrell Scott brings three upcoming hip-hop artists to the forefront in his Underdog competition. All you need to do is listen and vote to your favourite Underdog to win.
This week your three Underdog's are...
Eric Bellinger - he's been cruising the R&B arena since 2009. He dropped his debut in 2014 to moderate success (#23) and an even higher score with his 2015 project ‘Cuffing Season’ (#6) on the US R&B charts. He's also partially responsible for Chris Brown's ‘Fine China’ and Justin Bieber's ‘Right Here’. Eric is definitely one to watch in the urban industry a his presence is intensifying by the day.
IAMSU - Producer and hip-hop artist who has been active since 2007. He dropped his debut LP last year (#50 on Billboard), but his social media presence seems to counter these figures. His poduction credits are growing by the year, having already worked with acts such as Tinashe and YG, his sound is out of this world.
Samm Henshaw - This UK talent is on the rise in terms of diversifying the pallet. Signed to Columbia, Sam recently dropped his project ‘The Sound Experiment’ which has received heavy critical acclaim from outlets such as BBC. He's now been announced as one of Google Play's Sounds of 2016 as well as one of BBC's prestigious Sounds of 2016. (Edited: Samm Henshaw did indeed graduate from University.)
