This guy (who is on "Tempo" as well) is more-streams-than-Ed-Sheeran-level big right now. This is his pop move:
His collab with Belgian rapper Soufiane Eddyani, "Salam", is much more in-your-face:

The Russian press / 'public intellectual' sphere has apparently been taking a deeper interest in rap recently due to an hour-long (and not particularly watchable) face-off between Oxxxymiron, who is an established and highly acclaimed star, and Slava KPSS, a bratty viral internet rapper.

Tatarin by AIGEL is good:
Pharaoh's brand of klaud rep is as popular as ever:
