Pros: Has radio-ready style, funny without sacrificing skills.
Cons: At times he comes off too gimmicky.
Essential Listening: 20=X

DyMe-A-DuZiN has been steadily pushing out catchy songs for a few years now (check his track "I Hate High School" over Asher Roth's "I Love College" beat) but after inking a deal with Warner Brothers last year, he's poised to make some real noise-as long as he can overcome a few major challenges. Namely, he has to establish himself beyond the gimmicky songs he's made thus far and make actual, lasting hits. He's not a straight-up MC like many of the other acts on this list, so he can't rely on his core fans holding him down.
