Best New Artist (Unsigned) of 2008

Reader's Pick:
Thanks to co-signs from label bosses Lil Wayne (Young Money Entertainment) and Peter Wentz (Decaydance), California emcee Tyga burst onto the scene in 2008. A cousin of Gym Class Heroes lead vocalist Travis McCoy, the young artist released his debut album, No Introduction, in June, led by the catchy single, “Coconut Juice,” and has plans to follow it up with the appropriately-titled The Introduction, in mid-2009.
