Here’s an interesting and odd Michael Jackson tribute performed by Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. He performs several classic MJ songs and looks somewhat weird at times singing the songs.
To bunch these songs together might not be fair, but if you like rap songs when they have a banging rock instrumental with some nice guitar riffs on it, then you came to the right post.
First song, credit P&P for finding the latest song from The Knux, “She’s So Up”. I love the instrumental, the rapping is really good and I can’t wait for what The Knux bring us next.

Next we got Kyle Lucas who teamed up with STS and Pierce The Veil in “Picking Up The Pieces”. The flow is really good, an interesting sounding hook that sounds like a female Chester Bennington (of Linkin Park) and overall there is some good rock that drops in later in the song.

Team Prolific came out with this song in January called, “Getting Down”, and it is by far the best song I have heard from them. Support them by purchasing it on iTunes.

Lastly, this song came out in 2010 and I didn’t feel right posting it because Ghostface Killah really isn’t an up-and coming artist which we mostly write about. However the song, which is off his latest album, Apollo Kid, has some of the best instrumentals plus Ghostface Killah and Black Thought straight up kill it with their lyricism and flow.
