Goodbye Tomorrow

Sounds Like: Low-end bass rumble infiltrated by dagger-sharp, aggro wordplay

For Fans of: Kanye West, Childish Gambino, Drake

Why You Should Pay Attention: It's only a matter of time before we're rewarded with the identity of this Chicago rapper and his collaborative cohorts. For now, Goodbye Tomorrow remains a mystery. "If we focus on the core content, the arc of everything, you get the truth," says the philosophical rapper. "That's all I'm trying to do." Signed to Rostrum Records (who discovered Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller), the Windy City collective, principally comprised of the rapper and one key producer ("I hate when people say movement but that's the only way I can describe it," the rapper says), have released two tracks to date: "100K" and the the electro-tinged, trunk-rattling "Jay Z," the latter coming complete with a trippy video that's already racked up over 100,000 views on YouTube.

They Say: "It's exciting to me to see people fuck with us just off these two songs," the rapper says."'Jay Z' and '100K,' that's a very, very small percentage of the overall picture. The tip of the iceberg. There is so much different stuff that hasn't even been showcased yet. We're just trying to do some cool shit every day."
