With every new year comes new music, new opportunities, and the chance for new artists to take some of the spotlight for themselves. The problem is figuring out exactly which artists are going to make it big next, a task that isn't easy as the music industry can be very unpredictable with today's plugged in generation. Who might gain some fans this year? well there are a lot of artists to look at, but id like to concentrate on a particular hip-hop artist whom I feel just might have the tools to create a name for himself, and that's the man from Oklahoma, Johnny Polygon.
Johnny may not be the biggest name right now, but hes not without his accomplishments, he's featured in Nas' "Black President", and had one of his own songs, "Price on Your Head" featured in Rockstars GTA4 (an achievement in its own right). MTV aired one of his videos on their regular lineup in 2010, "The Riot Song", which is probably his greatest stab at the mainstream arena. He is also cosigned to Kid Cudi and 2dopeboyz, among others.
With songs like "Price on your head", "Kids Broken Hearted" and the backing of a few big names in the industry, Johnny Polygon is a great candidate to make it big in 2012.
