Tweet GLOBAL SPOTLIGHT | music | 06/04/2017 | Text: Brandon Payano Three Italian trap stars you need to know Hoping to push the culture forward by contextualizing traditional Hip-Hop tropes through different ways of life, subject matter, and even language, this new wave of Italian rappers have become well represented (and widely debated) since their growing presence was first chronicled in 2016. In particular, Ghali, Enzo Dong, & Sfera Ebbasta, 3 innovative and noteworthy artists, are bringing their individuality to the the table while repping red, white and green on their backs! GHALI
Of Tunisian origin, the already seasoned rapper has actually been in the game for quite some time now. Starting out in a hip-hop collective Troupe D’Elite, then later going solo and teaming up with frequent collaborator/producer Charlie Charles, Ghali has painstakingly become one of the most popular artists within his city in Milan. Riddled with trap beats, and a cadence that seamlessly fits in the pocket alongside the syllable heavy Italian language, Ghali teders a line of experimental and trap. Considered one of the important names within his particular class of Trap artists in Italy, the rapper delivers with recounts of his life, ambition and other personal triumphs.

Enzo Dong, probably one of the most exciting and buzzworthy artists out of the movement, is gunning out on a lane of his own. Wild, charismatic and basking in his own individuality, the rapper stirs up conversation worthy music, coupled with energetic production and execution. Because of his love for writing and previous involvement with an early Hip-Hop group, lyrics serve a huge importance and are the focal point of Enzos’ music. However, it can sometimes fade into the subtle catchiness of his songs, though still making him one to watch! Follow: facebook.com/enzodongofficial/

Slick delivery, smooth production and sheer will have placed fellow Italian rapper Sfera Ebbasta, at the forefront of Italy’s Trap movement, with no signs of letting up his reign. Working with the aforementioned producer Charlie Charles, Sfera made is underground debut in 2015 with the release of XDVR. An offering that changed the trajectory of his music and it’s reception for the next couple of years to come. His first studio album, Ebbasta Sphere, became the fourth best-selling rap album of 2016 in Italy and solidified his occupancy within rap music, his own lyrical growth and tastemaking sound.
