The Vevo dscvr 2018 Artists To Watch Series is highlighting artists and areas with the opportunity for significant growth, and with its latest selection, EarthGang, it’s clear that there’s no other region boasting young, rising talent like southern Georgia.
EarthGang -- consisting of Doctur Dot and Johnny Venus -- are the second offering from Atlanta to be selected for the 2018 list, following J.I.D. last week. For another sign of Atlanta’s undisputed superiority, the two acts are the only hip-hop artists to appear on the list so far.
The duo have been active since the early 2010’s, but they reached new heights in Aug. 2017 after signing to J. Cole’s Dreamville imprint and subsequently dropping the Rags EP. They followed the buzzy summer release with another EP Robots in October, which is said to be a part of a trilogy of 2017 projects.
