It’s been a big year in many ways, especially for the hip-hop/rap genre. We’ve seen new music drop from icons like Chance the Rapper, Drake, Yeezy, Frank Ocean, the Weeknd, Childish Gambino, and most recently, J. Cole. And they’re not done yet, with Kid Cudi slated to release his new mixtape this weekend and possibly a new project from Drake before the end of the year. Aside from the established, we’ve also been blessed with some smash hits from newcomers like D.R.A.M., Aminé, Lil Yachty, Rae Sremmurd, and Bryson Tiller. 2016 brought too many jams that can’t go unrecognized, so this playlist is dedicated to showcasing them.
Just in time for #finalsszn, a little smooth rap here and there can work wonders for your study flow.
