Though the music industry can be one of the toughest industries to break into, it often receives a new breed of musical talent who make their way into the mainstream. The high number of existing artists has also not been a limiting factor in blocking new arrivals on the scene. Incredibly, most new artists enter the scene with fresh, captivating, and thrilling sounds that capture the industry’s attention. Incredibly, everyone seems to come up with a different music “vibe,” showing the diversity and innovation in the industry.
The hip-hop scene is among the most competitive music genres, with millions of rappers. Though hip-hop has historically been celebrated more in the US, the genre has become a global sound with fans in every corner of the globe. The sound is also continually innovating, with new subgenres coming up every day. However, the key thing to note is that the US remains one of the largest hip-hop markets, with the highest number of rappers. The American hip-hop scene also receives the highest number of upcoming artists, among them Lily Jay.
Lily Jay is one of the top American rappers showing great potential to dominate the industry in the future.
