There is so much more to the hip hop scenes in the Carolinas than J. Cole and 9th Wonder. Last week, Hip Hop Vibe spotlighted a few of the many rising talents in the DMV area. Now, in the latest series, Hip Hop Vibe has gone slightly South and is sheding more light on the talent located in the Carolinas. Comparable to the DMV area, J. Cole is touted as the gateway.
The masses think of J. Cole as the first artist to truly break out of the Carolinas. Longtime hip hop fans and Carolina residents know differently, however. But, artists in both North and South Carolina feel J. Cole’s emergence has opened to door for much more from the area. In the Carolinas, there are a number of new artists, DJs, and models who could definitely be next up.
Over the next few days, Hip Hop Vibe will showcase some of the Carolina figures who are making a name for themselves in the mainstream hip hop world. Among the figures featured will be models, DJs, and artists. With so much talent in the area, the next major star could indeed be from the Carolinas.
