Being creative spawns in an area more times than not overlooked on rap's national scale, new age artists are emerging that aren't afraid to expand upon the experimental territories of The D.O.C, Erykah Badu, Play.N.Skillz, Dorrough, and yes, Vanilla Ice. Hopefully this won't be the first time you've heard the following five artists, but if it is, we're not judging. If you don't know, now you'll know.
