    Innanet James - "Black"

    20-year-old Virginia/Maryland rapper Innanet James dropped his debut song "Black" at the perfect moment.

Having diversity in any genre is always a healthy thing, and Innanet James is an exciting addition to hip-hop's class of newcomers. Read more about him here.—Confusion
