JUICEWRLD: Chicago-area hip-hop musician Juice WRLD delivers introspective lyrics atop melodic production, echoing Travis Scott and Post Malone. Born Jarad Higgins in 1998, the Calumet Park artist grew up playing piano, drums, and guitar, turning to rap freestyling in high school. Influenced by rock music and Chicago drill from Lil Durk and Chief Keef, Higgins began recording as Juice TheKidd, a moniker derived from his haircut, which resembled 2Pac's in the film Juice. His early tracks were all posted online, leading up to 2017's Juice WLRD 999 EP. Produced by Nick Mira and Sidepce, the set included the singles "Lucid Dreams (Forget Me)" and "All Girls Are the Same." Both tracks would also land on his official debut full-length, Goodbye & Good Riddance (Interscope), which peaked at number 15 on the Billboard 200 upon release in May 2018.
KEVIN GATES: Transferring the reflective style of rappers like Drake to the genre of gangsta rap, Louisiana-based MC Kevin Gates spent five-plus years on the mixtape circuit before climbing into the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 with his 2013 release, Stranger Than Fiction. The gruff but lyrical MC narrowly missed the top of the chart in 2016 with his proper debut album, the platinum-certified Islah, and routinely hit the upper reaches of the Billboard 200 with 2016-2018 volumes in his mixtape series Murder for Hire, By Any Means, and Luca Brasi.
Plies, 2 Chainz, and Doe B helped deliver his 2014 mixtape, By Any Means. The next year saw the single "Kno One" preview Islah. Gates' proper debut album, it was issued in January 2016 and debuted at number two, and only five months later was followed with an EP-length mixtape, Murder for Hire II. Islah was certified platinum in August. The single "What If," whose main hook referenced Joan Osborne's 1995 hit "What If God Was One of Us," appeared in March 2017. The track appeared on By Any Means 2, which was released in September while Gates was serving a prison sentence. After his release in early 2018, he issued the EP Chained to the City and the single "How We Livin'." Luca Brasi 3 became Gates' third Top Five full-length project upon its September arrival.
