Hip-hop heads know the game’s moving faster then ever. With the emergence of the Internet artists are constantly producing content to maintain their relevance. Much like dancing, every move must be carefully calculated and executed to produce the right results. Check out two of the net’s newest stars Wax and Jeff “Sighklone” Chan.

Growing up in Maryland, Wax, cites several different musical influences in his life. He mentions artists such as NWA, The Pharcyde, and Red Hot Chili Peppers but insists it’d be impossible to name all of his musical muses. Fans of the rap narrative “The Adventures of Larry and Tina,” have taken to MySpace to post their own acoustic version of the song, displaying the versatility of Wax’s words and flow.

Joints like Wax’s “Music and Liquor” display a more serious Wax as he confronts the implications of boozing every night and chasing the dream of being a successful rapper.  “I still struggle. I am late on all my bills and I can never afford to do anything. I am broke as fuck.”

Despite his struggles Wax has been busy in the studio with legendary producer Nottz with whom he’s, “knocked out a few tracks” but is “still not exactly sure when they will be released.” Wax’s also promises more dope collaborations with EOM, the producer of his latest offering “Liquid Courage”.

The most important element of hip-hop music is it’s means of self-expression. But hip-hop music isn’t the only emotional outlet available. Jeff Chan, a.k.a. Sighklone, has been breaking since 2008 and insists dancing is, “the easiest way to express himself.” From C-walking in the rain, to jerkin’ in Chinatown, to sponsorships with Phantasm, the young boy went from learning how to dance via Youtube to having over 10,000 views in just his third Youtube video.
