Many gems can be found amongst the up-and-coming scene of hip hop. I recently reviewed the Chicago artist Noname, whose album “Telefone” was yet another testament to the fact that major artists aren’t the only ones worth looking out for. After all, these rappers are the future of the genre. However, not all artists that attain a buzz online turn out to be particularly noteworthy. For while Xavier & The Thrill make attempts at something significant, these attempts fall flat in the worst way.
