The Forecast is a music video series, hosted by sibling duo Rome J & Morgan Elise Johnson, that predicts the next wave of Chicago artists. This episode of The Forecast highlights a few of Chicago’s new rising stars: Calboy, Polo G, and our feature artist, El Hitta.

He’s got his own ad-libs. He’s got his own dance. And, most importantly, he’s got his own sound. So there’s a strong chance that El Hitta is the next one to blow out of Chicago. 

He’s made so much noise locally and nationally this year. Hitta’s emotional summer banger, “Aww Yea,” made The Fader’s list of best new rap songs, and continues to see good rotation on Chicago urban radio. In November, he linked with Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame to remix another gem out of his bag, “And Gang Nem.” After dropping his Owe Nobody Nothin mixtape earlier this month, he then rocked out the Chicago Theatre alongside G Herbo, Queen Key, and more at the WGCI Pre-NYE Jam on Dec. 28.

Check out Hitta’s full interview with Rome J, along with reviews of Calboy and Polo G, on this episode of  The Forecast (above).
