About this Playlist
This playlist is used to shine a light on the underground rap renaissance that has been occurring in the past 4-5 years. The music on this list will reinvigorate a hip hop head that fell in love with the sound of the Golden Era of Hip Hop. This list is well versed in the history of the sound and feel, yet still brings a new and innovated flavor that pushes the sound forward.
If you find yourself asking “why isn’t hip hop as good as it used to be?” this is your answer. It is underground, it’s not on the radio, it’s not in the big music companies any longer, it is being made with full freedom and creativity, away from the shackles the business put on the art of Hip Hop. As Father Kool Herc once said “The less coverage you get on it, the more innovation coming on it. So it’s always gonna be. “Wow! Where this come from?”….Thats the thing about Hip Hop, man. It’s forever elevating and forever changing”
