Top 5 Emerging Artists from LA

LA is probably the most famous hotspot for big and small talents. Young artists with big dreams keep constantly moving there in search for a producer or the “Big Guy” to discover their talent and live their Cinderella story. While it is an option for some starting artists, there are many who don’t just sit and wait for their musical prince to realize their dream.

The internet has crushed the music industry: with platforms such as Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Datpiff and many more, it has given the opportunity to the rising artists to shine and share their music without a major record company.

However, that is not the only thing you should remember him for, his single “Juice” is getting a lot of press and attention.

2. Berioso

A young rapper Berioso from California is bringing some originality to the circle. The rising star’s father was signed to Death Row back in time and he is working hard to get in the game.
