The Circuit is here to bring you the content of today’s rising stars. This section is designed to shed light on the up and comers across the nation and other countries that are making noise for themselves. On the mainstream level, hip-hop is always exciting but without the invigoration of the next generation of artists there will be nothing to look forward to. This edition of The Circuit brings the sounds of Qu’ality, Kris Kasanova, and Lafayette Stokely as recommendations powered by The Takeovah, where underground IS Mainstream.
