Kembe X scores 2 songs on Billboard's Emerging Artists Chart.

Kembe X appeared at No. 21 on the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart for this week (Aug. 11) as a result of his recent single "Caged Bird."

The song was released independently last week and features TDE's Isaiah Rashad. Rashad was also featured along with Julian Malone on "Die 4 it," from Kembe X's  Soundtrack II Armageddon EP (May 2013) and was seen earlier this year charting on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums at No. 9 for his Cilvia: Demo (Feb. 15).  "Caged Bird" charted four days after it was released on the Trending 140, peaking at No. 13 on Saturday.

Kembe X is considered a Billboard Emerging Artist because he has fewer than 50,000 Twitter followers and has not yet charted in the top 50 of the Billboard Hot 100.

However, this has not stopped the bubbling-under artist from charting a second song on the Emerging Artists chart this week: "As I Unfold," featuring Ab-Soul & Alex Wiley, is at No. 27. The track debuted Aug. 5 on SoundCloud and charted on Billboard's Twitter Trending 140 chart (Aug. 8) for four days, peaking at No. 89.
