Complex: 20 Artists Under 20 You Should Know

i'm not a big hip hop guy, but Complex's snapchat story on 20 under artists under 20 intrigued me a bit. Enough to want to post them all in a list on Sputnik. Tell me who's good, who's trash, who has potential, who's stuff I should really check out. I want to see me some discussion. putting Complex's descriptions in lieu of my own.
1Trippie Redd
A Love Letter to You 2

Age: 18

"Trippie Redd could be rap's next rock star. He's able to craft a booming rap cut, a melodic love song, or some mutant combination of genres that sounds entirely new. Counting Lil Wayne, MF Doom, and Marilyn Manson as influences, Trippie has a wide-ranging set of abilities that reflect his eclectic tastes, setting him up for major moves right now."
2Lil Pump
Lil Pump

Age: 17

"Exploding from the South Florida SoundCloud rap scene with two-minute songs driven by overblown bass and repeated catchphrases, Lil Pump is certainly a divisive figure. What is certain, however, is that his music does crazy numbers and makes kids lose their minds."
3Kodie Shane
Back From The Future

Age: 18

"As part of Lil Yachty's Sailing Team crew, Kodie Shane has done a lot to make herself stand out. Appealing to fans of Yachty, and the skeptics alike, she brings a melodic approach to rap that is current and fresh, without sounding generic. Few rappers out now nail the sing-alongs as well as Kodie does, and she's shown her emotional depth on songs like 'Sad'."
4Steve Lacy (USA-CA)
Steve Lacy's Demo

Age: 19

"Six tracks were enough to prove just how much Lacy still has up his sleeve. His collaborations with Tyler, the Creator, Kali Uchis, and more have allowed more fans to see his potential, and it's been fun to watch his rise."
5Jaden Smith
This Is The Album

Age: 19

"Instead of watering down his music or trying to follow a reliable formula, Jaden has been gradually improving, progressing, and taking risks."
American Teen

Age: 19

"His incredible vocals are the forefront of his music, and thankfully his backs it up with some impressive songwriting that many on the verge of adulthood will relate to."
7Ravyn Lenae
Midnight Moonlight

Age: 18

"Her 'Midnight Moonlight' EP became one of 2017's freshest, most vibrant releases."
8Rex Orange County
Apricot Princess

Age: 19

"Appearing extensively on Tyler, the Creator's 'Flower Boy', Rex was given the opportunity to introduce even more listeners to his music."
96 Dogs
6 Dogs

Age: 18

"There's nothing flashy about 6 Dogs' music, and that's what makes it so appealing."
10Yellow Days
Harmless Melodies


"He's told us he draws inspiration from Ray Charles, Howlin' Wolf, jazz guitarists, and Mac Demarco."

Age: 19

"Groggy and inspired by everything from new wave and post-punk to industrial and Detroit techno, the record is held together by Corbin's vocals, rich and textured, whether he's screaming his lungs out or singing softly about heartbreak."
12Billie Eilish
dont smile at me

Age: 15

"From lead single "Copycat", to the pillowy textures of "ocean eyes," Eilish is demonstrating a gift for phrasing and dynamics."
