6. Reekado Banks
On the flip side of the Lil Kesh Next Rated argument is the person who actually won the Next Rated award, and that is Reekado Banks. Winning that award already comes with its own pressure, but this year with all the controversy surrounding it, the pressure is on world cup final levels. Even though, Banks, signed to Mavin Records dropped a song shortly after winning the award, the real thing fans will be waiting for is a solo album. A Mavin Records collective album might not be enough.
