The Billboard Emerging Artists Chart is having some serious activity this week as Joey Fatts, Rob Bank$, Toro Y Moi and The Underachievers round out the top four spots.

The number one song on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart "Stevie World" is a touching tribute to A$AP Yams coming from Joey Fatts. The song is dedicated to the fallen A$AP Mob creator and creative inspiration who passed away early Sunday.

Fatts reminisces on the times that he was helped out by Yams.

Fatts vows never to forget Yams whom he says brought him off of the streets according to a verse in the song.

Though it is 4:18 long, only 1:51 is dedicated to lyrics and music the rest of the track features silence likely in honor of Yams.

The number two song on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart is titled, "2phoneshawty," takes on a completely different meaning as Rob Bank$ gets into the dark side of Hip-Hip.

The sinister beat lends itself to some very dark lyrics as Bank$ raps, "Satan do my PR, my manager is God, I'm hittin' j's in the elevator like my name was Solange." The name Rob Bank$ is also a little sketchy (just think about it), but he does spit some pretty heavy bars on the track.

Venturing far off the Hip-Hop path is the pop/alternative song "Empty Nesters" by Toro Y Moi aka Chaz Bundick.

The sound has a total sunny California surfer vibe and might also be a nice dance tune to get down to as well.

"Chaz Bundick, aka Toro Y Moi, will release his new album What For? on April 7 via Carpark Records," according to Pitchfork. "It follows 2013's Anything in Return and last year's Michael, Bundick's album as Les Sins."

Rounding out the top for is The Underachievers and their song, "Amorphous" featuring Portugal the Man.

This is a very interesting track that fuses Hip-Hop and EDM, it's fast pace nature lends itself well to the EDM genre while the rapping brings it back to the streets. "Amorphous" is off of The Underachievers "Cellar Door" album"
