If I could travel to Dubai, I would go to the top of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and scream, “Blueface, babyyyyyy!” Why? Because 2019 already belongs to him. Over the final few months of 2018, the L.A. rapper’s name and (pretty) face began popping up all over the place. He made his way into the underground spotlight, mostly because people couldn’t tell if he was trolling or not. But the more his music spread, the more people began to take him seriously (myself included). His strongest songs are also his most disrespectful: Look no further than his current hit, “Thotiana,” as well as “Freak Bitch,” and “Put in Her Face.” I understand completely that his style is… different. Regardless, he has a lot of eyes on him, and we can't wait to hear what a full Blueface album sounds like. —Kiana Fitzgerald
