Who's Up Next? Just Watch Drake's Instagram

If you're looking for the next artist to blow, just keep a close watch on Drizzy's IG.

At this point Drake's co-sign power is well documented. He starts working with The Weeknd, a few years later The Weeknd is a superstar. He plucks Makonnen from relative internet obscurity, literally weeks later Makonnen is onstage in front of thousands. 

Love him or hate him, if you're trying to predict the next artist to go big, you'd be well advised to simply watch who Drake's hanging around, and there's no better place to do that then his Instagram. Sure, there are plenty of pics of Drizzy with superstar friends - and no shortage of shots of him shirtless - but if you look closely, you'll also see a new wave of rappers, singers, grafitti artists, DJs and producers whose names you need to get familiar with. Turns out Aubrey's IG is a modern day Rosetta Stone for artists you should know. 

But flipping through all those pics for the hidden gems can be exhausting, that's why we did the hard work for you. So head over to GreenLabel and let us (and Drake's Instagram) put you on game.
