Music For The Sole! Ones to Watch 2018
We're thrown a spotlight to 3 guys we expect to do big things in 2018, A safe bet, a fairly well-known guy, and maybe a big curveball thrown in the mix. Take a look below, let us know what you think!
2017 was a huge year for Dave, putting his name on the map. High profile collaborations with the likes of J Hus, AJ Tracey and Drake across smash singles, and 2 self-released E.P.s under his belt (and a Stone Island one at that) , it's only a matter of time before a major label chucks money at Dave to make a genre-smashing Rap / Hip Hop / Grime record.
After a whirlwind 2017, seeing his debut released on RCA records off the back of a sell-out USA tour and seeing himself be nominated for multiple Grammys, plus being featured on many an end of year list, what does 2018 hold for Khalid? With a recent BBC sound of 2018 nomination behind him, don't sleep on a surprise second album, tour, smash hit single and multiple huge collaborations. It won't be long till we look at this guy in the same way as Frank Ocean and The Weeknd
A bit more of a leftfield choice, but Kojey has been grafting at a serious rate, putting his biblical infused Kendrick cum Joey Badass cum Roots Manuva poetry across a literary of the hardest beats for his last project, In God's Body. Expect a serious debut from Kojey in 2018, and a shot on the runway for a fashion house in a short space of time (Kojey would comfortably win the award of best-dressed rapper in a heartbeat)
