Sickamore Drops Mixtape Showcasing Unsigned Talent

Mixtape DJ Sickamore

recently released a unique mixtape, Overnight Celebrity: The Street Power

30.

The release ranks

what Sickamore labels the top 30 rappers in the United States that have yet

to release an album.

Sickamore, who

dubs himself ‘Your Favorite A&Rs Favorite A&R’, said that he found

most of the artists as he was scouting for talent for Just Blaze’s new

record label.

“Everyone

kept saying Hip-Hop was dead" and that "all the new talent was wack,"

so I decieded to prove them wrong,” Sickamore explained to AllHipHop.com.

“I got new music from the Top 30 artists on the street & put it together.

I banged my head against the wall putting it in order. I did it based on a mix

of street buzz & skills.”

Sickamore said

his goal was to rejuvenate the rap game with a fresh influx of new faces.

“It’s

a smack in the face to the industry like ‘Here it is! Stop making excuses

& step your game up. Because like my man GZA said, most A&Rs are white

‘mountain climbers who play the electric guitar’ & don’t no

jack s**t about our music.”

The Street Power 30 is on the streets now.
