This month was an exhausting one. It's understandable why the insane 6ix9ine courtroom drama is currently dominating conversation in the music world, but it's a sad reflection of the times. Plus, it has made social media unbearable. Overall, a pretty shitty month—a 6 out of 10 at best—but there's still time, and these last days of September have potential. Kick off the final stretch of the month by checking out some of our favorite artists on the rise.
