AMINÉ, no not the cartoon, not the Moroccan singer, it's the rapper on the XXL Freshman '17 cover who is looking to make his name just as common as well... Common. But we can't just pass the torch like that, believe me it's levels to the rap game. So who is AMINÉ? He is an American Ethiopian rapper who's song "Caroline", went viral with over 170 million views which helped to generate a lot of buzz. He is a first generation and gets his rap name from his middle name which you guessed it. AMINÉ. But whats great about AMINÉ is that he embraces his culture and has even made songs like "BaBa" which uses Amharic *(which is the official language of Ethiopia) mixed with a little English and takes parts from both of his cultures. Where is AMINÉ from? He is from Portland, OR. I know what you thinking. Do they even rap there? Ask Rasheed Wallace when he played for the Trail Blazers. So yea there's rap in Portland. He has popular artists and other viral YouTubers reaching out, like 50 Tyson.
