1. Mark Battles

There was none who worked harder in 2013 or grew faster than Mark Battles. This Indianapolis, IN MC has authored a meteoric rise building his Fly America brand into one of the NEXT in hip hop period for 2014. I would not be surprised to see him under serious consideration for the XXL Freshman List next year. He toured 36 cities with MGK in Canada, he released songs with Curren$y, French Montana, and many more. He released a mixtape at the endo f the year with Bad Boy Record's King Los (Broken Silence). He's going on tour with 2Chainz in a month. Bottom line this kid is looking at the FUTURE being him in the rap game and he's come from humble beginnings in Indianapolis, Indiana's Westside. Pay attention to Mark Battles, he will be EVERYWHERE in 2014.
