The “Breakout Artist For 2015” Award || The Ether Report

Award: Breakout Artist For 2015

Nominees: Childish Gambino, Young Thug, Travis $cott

Breakdown: A few artists are on the cusp of stardom after an event filled 2014 so it was hard to choose. Childish Gambino is within an arm’s reach of mainstream superstardom. He has the ability to satisfy any type of hip hop fan from hard raps to lates 80’s melodies. Young Thug has been on some of the biggest hits of 2014 with “Lifestyle” and “About The Money.” Travis $cott is a blow-up waiting to happen with his explosive sounds. The affiliation to Kanye West isn’t going to turn anybody away either.

Winner: Childish Gambino

(Honorable Mention: Makonnen, Rae Sremmurd, Chance The Rapper, Vince Staples, Ty Dolla $ign, Logic)
