Honorary Mention
Our honorary mention this year is Be Eezy. Even though he did not make it to the list, but he is worth a mention because his hard work this year did not go unnoticed. B Eezy Nation has dropped a number of singles and the Black and White mixtape which has mild success. However, he is a business acumen is impressive, distributing music via his own blogspot and creating a crew to amp him up, he has had a good 2017 and will definitely be here longer.
