"LVL" - A$AP tips his hat to his old signature sound once again here, linking with lo-fi ambient-rap master Clams Casino for one of his trademark murky beats that sound like they were recorded in a cloud. A$AP shows off two of his finest vocal gifts, switching from quick rhymes to slow, melodic sing-song. A 24-year-old rapper from Harlem who sounds like Bone Thugs-N-Harmony ? and pulls it off? Who'd have thought.   (Photo: John Ricard / BET)

All For The Music - One of 2011's summer anthems belonged to Ace Hood. The determined rapper broke through to more fans with his song "Hustle Hard." It spoke to real life experience and the importance of making your own way and being able to give back to those that have give to you. (Photo: John Ricard / BET)

Trinidad James - You thought Chief Keef blew up quickly? Meet Trinidad James. After rapping for just a few months, the ATL rapper released his Don?t Be S.A.F.E. mixtape in July, which yielded the viral-video sensation ?All Gold Everything,? perhaps the biggest indie-rap track of the year. In December, James took New York by storm, selling out a Manhattan club and hitting the stage at Madison Square Garden with Trey Songz and Young Jeezy. A couple weeks after that, he signed a multimillion dollar deal with Def Jam. If Trinidad keeps up this pace, 2013 is going to be a huge year for him.(Photo: Randy Smith/BET)

Ace Hood, @acehood - Tweet: "I'm looking for soulja girl I hit his phone he aint reply !"Well it looks like it's safe to say rapper Ace Hood didn't find boxer Adrian Broner and Soulja Boy's viral video poking fun at his jewelry mishap humorous. The "Bugatti" rapper's diamond Rolex watch bezel fell off during his live red carpet interview at the BET Awards.(Photo: John Ricard/BET)

B.o.B - "How 2 Rap" - Though he went unmentioned in Lamar?s ?Control? verse, B.o.B figured his voice should still be heard. The multi-talented Hustle Gang rapper took an unorthodox approach on his response record "How 2 Rap," where he raps at the beginning, even mimicking Kendrick?s voice, then breaks out into a guitar solo. It's different.(Photo: Randy Smith/BET)
