Standout: Shuffle 2 / Swing – Student 1

When people think of Minnesota, they think of the Mall of America, hockey, or the Golden Gophers. Hip-hop does not come to mind. Save for being the home of Rhymesayers, Minnesota has little relevancy in the world of modern rap music. Enter Student 1, a Minneapolis native who has a versatile flow and a demeanor reminiscent of Childish Gambino. “Shuffle 2,” a continuation of “Shuffle 1” on his mixtape Memoman, has a bare-yet-purposeful beat with some quality lines and delivery. The accompanying visuals are aptly lo-fi, and “Shuffle 2” showcases some major potential for Student 1’s career.
