There's always been a lingering question of if New York could get back to its signature grimey sound following Bobby Shmurda's incarceration in But rising rappers like Pop Smoke are doing their part to keep that youthful energy alive.

An adept rapper who exudes the spirit of your favorite cartoon character, Guapdad imbues fun and warmth into every record he lays his fingers on. Not only can he spray steely bars when necessary "Dior Deposits" , but he can also bake sugary tunes with big-time artists, as well "Gucci Pajamas" with Chance the Rapper.
