It’s safe to say hip-hop isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. And thankfully it doesn’t have to as there is plenty of talent out there to carry the game for years to come. In addition, there’s always a slew of new talent cropping up in the scene. Be it due to hard work or going viral, dozens of fresh rappers are gaining exposure every year. Peep our list of the 10 rappers you probably don’t know about in 2014, but will soon be seeing everywhere.

Honorable Mentions: Sulaiman (Hook, Line, and Sinker), Cavalier (The Offering), Rast RFC (Across West 3rd Street), Antwon (Heavy Hearted in Doldrums), Jimmy Johnson (In God We Trust), GoldLink (The God Complex), Robb Bank$ (Tha City).

Check out the full list after the jump.
