WHAT IT IS: With a resurgence of N.Y. rap by new talent (Young M.A.Desiigner) as well as established artists (Fat JoeRemy Ma), Crystal Caines comes as an added breath of fresh air in hip-hop.

Her debut track, “Run With Me,” which features Ferg, has been garnering buzz from blogs and N.Y. radio staples Hot 97 and Power 105. Crystal continues to introduce cutting-edge material in 2017, with Fader just premiering her newest track, “No Drama.”
