HotNewHipHop's On The Come Up series profiles rising stars in the rap game that show strong promise and the will to succeed. Most of the time, they're new to the site but deserve some shine. We will profile artists ranging from those in the deep underground to artists just about to bubble up into the mainstream that you may have missed. You'll be able to check out some of their best work, and we'll break down what makes them great by category. Throughout the article, you'll find links to hear more from the artist, and make sure you go follow our official Soundcloud for more new music.

While there are a ton of super talented artists making names for themselves all the time, the same can be said for the guys behind the boards, who are shaping the future of music as we know it by expanding the limits of what we think we "like". For this week's On The Come Up, we got the chance to chop it up with Detroit-native Skywlkr, one of the brightest young stars in the producer game. Danny Brown's touring DJ and Bruiser Brigade's in-house producer, Skywlkr has produced some of the craziest and most experimental music in the genre over the past couple years.
