CHEWING ON BEST NEW ARTISTS: POLO G

We've decided to break out the entries in our recent assessment of the top contenders for Best New Artist. Next up: Polo G.

This Chicago rapper is another artist who’s bigger than you may realize. The fact that his albums have had a huge impact with only one huge track (“RAPSTAR”) is one indicator of his importance; another is the gravitas with which he tackles the struggles and tragedies he's faced. He’s a true storyteller, and with his chart-topping 2021 set, Hall of Fame, he reached a new plateau. Moreover, there’s plenty of room for him to grow, both commercially and creatively.
