As mentioned throughout this list, drill music took over in Brooklyn last year, and expect the trend to continue in the rest of the country, like Texas, where Lil Loaded is busy putting up numbers. Last summer, the 18-year-old Duncanville, Texas native rose to prominence thanks to the instant success of his viral hit, “6locc 6a6y,” a colossal banger that’s already amassed millions of plays. And with other songs like the immediately catchy, melodic “Out My Body,” he’s already proven he has a variety of styles at his disposal. Fresh off his first project, December’s 6locc 6a6y, Lil Loaded just might be poised to be the Lone Star state’s biggest breakout rapper of 2020. —Brad Callas
