    Broderick Batts

    There's so much exciting hip-hop coming out of Florida right now, and between the rising talent like Kodak Black, Chester Watson, and Denzel Curry, the diversity of rap styles is staggering. Broderick Batts isn't one of the most buzzing names right now, but he may have the most crossover potential of them all.

    Batts is a rapper, but he can put together a fine pop song too, as evidenced by the supremely catchy "Kate Moss 1989." His music is bright, fun, and addictive, and we're banking on at least a few more feel-good anthems before 2016 comes to a close.—Jacob Moore
