25. Danny Brown

Detroit native Danny Brown has had a good year, the permed rapper released his acclaimed mixtape, XXX, and also signed with Fool's Gold Records. Performances at events like the Fool's Gold Block Party and Fader Fort further pushed him in the limelight, where his Brooklynesque style got people's attention. Cut-off denim vests? Jeremy Scott tiger stripe tuxedo track jackets? Gray acid-washed jeans with Jordan 3s? Love him or hate him, Danny Brown makes it work.
