Kanye's collabing with Beatles. Wayne is sorry for the wait again. Rae Sremmurd's swag is unlocked. 2015 is off to the races, expanding in a million directions every step of the way. Rap's unpredictable and hard to pin down as ever this year, but generally speaking, where producers go, the game goes. We've gone ahead and rounded up some of the new blood poised to make waves in the coming year, from New Atlanta eccentrics to rising Chicago bop legends to Cali ratchet music scenesters and everything in between. We've spotlighted promising indie rapper/producers, future mixtape kings, emergent mainstream heavyweights, and more. Like we always do at this time, here are your producers to watch out for in 2015. Get familiar, and as usual, get at us in the comments.
