In my opinion the best part of hip-hop's takeover of modern music is that it let's me appreciate alternative hip-hop even more. This is a playlist of artists keeping weird alive and running firmly in their own lane. Sure it's not always the easiest listen but I can promise that if you're as tired of SoundCloud trap as me this will be a welcome change.
I've always admired artists who remain dedicated to making a sound that's authentically theirs, uncompromising in their belief that they have something important to say. I guess it's because they ususally do?
