You know what time is it. The kid is back with another fire playlist. This time I am rounding up all the top hip-hop songs from 2015 and generating a playlist that would have The Rock motivated to go to the gym.
It’s been an interesting year for rap, one that will probably go down as one of the most controversial of all time. We saw new rap beefs started and old ones continued, mostly thanks to social media. Kendrick, Drake, A$AP Rocky, and a handful of other’s dropped some certified classics while youngins Fetty Wap, Rae Sremmurd, and a few more enjoyed rookie albums. Overall, it was a pretty solid year.
I would have loved to see albums from Cole, Jay or Kanye. But that didn’t happen. The Revenge of the Dreamers album from Cole’s team was great, but we still need that solo project. With no surprise Drake, in my opinion, far and away outshined any rapper this year. It feels like everything he touches turns to gold.
2016 should be another great year for rap. Expect Kanye’s Swish to drop in-between him changing diapers and reading a bedtime story. We should get new music from Cole (hopefully February like he promised), Big Sean, DJ Khaled, and that Dreamchasers 4 from Meek.
There were a ton of anthems that could have made this warmup playlist, but I had to narrow it down to ten. The key ingredients to the mix is heavy drums, smooth beats, and cut-throat lyrics. LET’S GET HYPED. Here are 10 Hip-Hop Songs From Last Year That Should Make Your Warmup Mix in 2016.
