Welcome part 4 of our blog series ‘The Hunt’. With all the labor day jam this weekend, today’s blog will only feature two artist. But these two have a bunch of songs you guys to bump. For those who don’t know about ‘The Hunt’, our team searches for new artists every other week. With different backgrounds and genres, we try our best to mix it up as much as we can. Make sure to check each artist out and show their music some love!
1. Jesus Honcho
Honcho has defintely adapted to the new age emo-type hip-hop. Using a lot of slower beats, he makes very similar music to Trippie Redd. What makes him stand out is his ability to be able to rap as well. He is a pretty versatile artist and might have the ability to make multiple types of music. As an artist he has been growing pretty fast. His biggest song “Infatuated” amassed over 9 million views on SoundCloud. The rest of his songs get a couple 100,000 plays but his numbers seem to steadily increase. He has recently been working with Cole Bennet (Lyrical Lemonade) for his last video shoot and thats all you can really ask for nowadays. Hopefully he is able to make some more songs worthy of Cole’s time.

2. Quando Rondo
Quando Rondo has came in HOT this year. Earlier in the year he released his biggest song yet “I Remember” with a feature from Lil Baby. He took all the attention from that song and ran with it. Since then he’s been making quality music and growing by the day. Besides the 10 million plays from that song, He’s been getting between 300,000 – 2,000,000 SoundCloud plays on his other songs. Only 19 years old, there is a lot of potential for him to blow up. Being from Atlanta, I feel like once he gets some more stain he’ll get his features with some of the bigger hometown names (Thugger, Future, 21 Savage).
