The music prediction business is a tough business to be in. Every year artists emerge from out of nowhere to conquer the game - not even Post Malone thought Post Malone would be famous in January of last year - and seeming sure shots fall of for all sorts of reasons no one could have seen coming - in June Meek Mill had a number one album, but December he'd been ethered in a beef and is seemingly headed back to prison.
But while no one gets every pick right every year, I won't front, we're exceedingly good at the music prediction game. In January of 2015 we teamed up with Green Label to pick artist we felt like were destined to blow, and sure enough Vince Staples, Goldlink, Bryson Tiller, Rapsody and many more of our picks ended up having career-defining years.
So of course we had to come back again with another round of predictions for who's going to end up doing it big in 2016. Who made our list? Hit that link below and find out.
