I love a good summer playlist, and today’s music is in that vein, however instead of the usual Jack Johnson, Sublime and Bruce Springsteen I have decided to go in a different direction. I am a child of the golden age of rap, hip hop and R&B, so much so that I listen to those songs way more than any recent music, and when a friend recently asked me to think of a better rapper than Drake and Kendrick Lamar (both of whom I will freely admit I barely listen to) I immediately replied with “Did you not live through the last decade of the the century? I could press shuffle on my itunes and come up with a better rapper than those two.”
Needless to say my friend and I will never agree. But I am very happy to present my summer list for this week, starring (in my opinion) some of the best rap, hip hop and R&B artists ever.
- California Love – 2pac
- Summertime – Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince
- Regulate – Warren G
- Hey Lover – LL Cool J
- Beautiful – Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams
- Hot in Herre – Nelly
- Runaway – Janet Jackson
- Ride Wit Me – Nelly
- Dreamlover – Mariah Carey
- It Was A Good Day – Ice Cube
- Pimpin’ All Over The World – Ludacris
Hope you have a great Monday, and remember that: ain’t no need of even askin’ brah, the best women are reside in Africa, and that’s real.
