June Was Full Of Great Hip-Hop. Here’s The Best Of The Month In 1 Playlist (Audio)
The month of June was the epitome of quality over quantity, when it came to Hip-Hop. There were fewer noteworthy releases than in any month of the year, so far, but those that penetrated were high-powered. Drake set the month on fire with one of his hardest rhymes in years, taking shots at Puff Daddy and Joe Budden. Budden closed the month with six minutes of disses aimed straight at the 6 God. In between, were great songs from DMX, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Jurassic 5, Logic & Pusha T, Skyzoo, A-F-R-O, Nipsey Hussle and more.
Fat Joe breathed new life into one of the hottest songs of the year, by inviting Snoop Dogg, E-40 and The Game onto the West Coast remix of “All The Way Up.” And, Vic Mensa captured the zeitgeist around police brutality and LGBTQ rights, with deeply personal and moving singles like “There’s A Lot Going On,” “Free Love” and “16 Shots.”
You can hear all of those records and more in the AFH: Best of Hip-Hop of June 2016 playlist.
