Best Hip-Hop Artist
2nd Place: Peanut Gallary | 3rd Place: Reek Savage
Thankfully, it's been a long creative route for rapper Richie Branson. Emerging in 2011 with "Jersey Shore Fist Pump" — we'll let you guess the hook — Branson has since rebranded as a nerdcore rapper. Though the new stuff is more niche, it's immediately apparent that the SA native has more fun (and talent) riffing on Cowboy Bebop and 28 Days Later than singing off-brand Kesha tunes.
