#6 Pusha T (Solo)
With number 6 in the countdown we bring you Pusha T. Before you go off saying he's not new or he's been around for a while, we are talking about the solo artist Pusha T. He was the other half of Clipse along with his brother Malice. Since then Pusha has made major moves for his solo career and signed on with Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music in 2010.
After he released Fear of God, his first solo mixtape, in March 2011, he put his name out in the spotlight and continued grinding. He was featured on Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in "Runaway" as sort of a welcome to G.O.O.D. Music. He has also released two singles "Trouble On My Mind" feat. Tyler, The Creator and "Amen" feat. Young Jeezy & Kanye West. These are both off of his inaugural album Fear of God II: Let Us Pray which was pushed back to a September 27th release date. Pusha T has a heavy flow and smart lyricism and is destined to blow up in 2012 so keep an eye out for him.
