The True Excitement in the Rap Game

Most people would ask, “What does a small white girl from the suburbs know about rap?”. It is a fair question. Well, not only am I a “rap connoisseur” in my free time, but I have my own rap and hip hop radio show, “Acidic Beats with DJ Bert Flowers”. There are many secret hidden gems on Youtube, Soundcloud, and Spotify. It is hard to go out of your way to find new music in this day. Most people default to well-known artists just for the convenience in their daily lives. The hustle and bustle of daily life makes us boring. Let me tell you about some cool sh*t that I found scrolling through Spotify when I was supposed to be paying attention in class.

If you “love” rap music, here are three artists you should put onto your playlist.


Jonathan Wayne is a 28 year old rapper out of California. Jon started his career after attending Low End Theory, a Los Angeles hip hop club, in 2009. Later dropping his instrumental album Bowser in 2001. Since then, he has released 14 albums and EPs with countless singles. He uses heavy harsh melodies to draw in audiences. His low mellow flow captures the attention from all walks of life.
