If you don't know about AMINE by now, you just haven't been paying attention. The Portland rapper's single "Caroline" has dominated both the airwaves and the internet for the past 6 months---racking up over 200 MILLION streams since it came out. The music video, which Amine directed himself, has won over the internet with its unabashed playfulness + subtle homages to past Tarantino & Wes Anderson flicks. It's also just the beginning. Amine has a lot more surprises up his sleeve for Portland, hip-hop, and the world at large.

You don't ever think of a rapper or even a black guy coming out of Portland, he asserts. That's just not a thing! However, there's a fairly diverse subculture in the city that few people know about. It's very different from what you would expect.

However, everything he does defies expectations. The rapper, artist, and director draws equal influence from his parents Ethiopian heritage as he does from trailblazers such as Kanye West and Andre 3000. He's more likely to record in a remote AirBNB'ed wilderness cabin than he is in a posh studio, and he cites Quentin Tarantino and Wes Anderson as major inspirations. Building on a lifelong passion for music, he began recording in high school and quietly sharpening his mic skills. While attending Portland State University, he released his 2015 project Calling Brio. Merging visual lyricism, swaggering production, and his clever, catchy bars, it became a phenomenon on Soundcloud, racking up over 1 million+ plays. In addition to praise from Pigeons & Planes, HypeTrak, and more, Complex spotlighted him as one of the artists we're certainly checking for this year.

I'm a fan of all genres, he explains. My parents always played African music and Bob Marley. Then, I grew up on everything from Erykah Badu to John Mayer. I want to do something that reflects this diversity. My songs need to be good for the listener personally.

Representing that mosaic style, his 2016 single "CAROLINE" struts through a funked-up tribal bounce with the kind of grit and gusto that'd make Jules Winfield and Vincent Vega proud. Upon release, it quickly caught fire, garnering 34 million-plus Spotify streams, 20 million-plus Soundcloud plays, and 16 million-plus YouTube/VEVO views as well as reaching #1 on Spotify's Global Viral Top 50, #1 on the US Viral Top 50, and #1 on the Canada Viral Top 50. As the track took off, he inked a deal with Republic Records.
